Report: 49ers sign former Eagles WR Jordan Matthews

There is the veteran wide out signing

More moves baby!

Per Adam Schefter, the San Francisco 49ers are signing veteran WR Jordan Matthews. The 26-year old receiver caught 20 of his 26 targets with the Philadelphia Eagles last year for 300 yards and 2 touchdowns. 15 yards a reception isn’t too shabby. Matthews was very productive his first stint in Philly. He put up over 800 yards in his three seasons there.

We’ll update you once the contract details emerge. You have to imagine it won’t break the bank, considering the year Matthews just had. In Kyle Shanahan’s system, Matthews should be very effective.

First Tevin Coleman, now Matthews. It’s clear that Shanahan wants guys that are good with the ball in their hands. Matthews is known for making plays after the catch. His role should not change in the 49ers offense. When Matthews was most effective, he was getting the ball over the middle of the field. We’ll see how he looks in camp and what his role will end up being with the team. For now, it’s a quality veteran signing.
