Jordan Matthews confident of his value in free agency
Bills receiver Jordan Matthews is confident some team will see him as a No. 1 receiver.
He hits free agency coming off a season when he made only 25 catches for 282 yards and a touchdown. Matthews points to his injuries as a reason for the decline in production, which limited him to 10 games, including seven starts.
Thomas reportedly has auditioned for TV jobs with both ESPN and FOX. Silent for most of his career, Thomas has begun making his voice heard over the past year or so, presenting a funny and engaging side that will serve him well if he indeed chooses to move on from football.
If he calls it quits after 11 seasons, Thomas will have never made it to the playoffs, and he will have been on only one team with a winning record during his rookie year, the Browns were 10-6.
Early on Wednesday, an ESPN report indicated that the Eagles had restructured defensive end Chris Long’s contract,?giving him more guaranteed salary for the 2018 season.
As it turns out, that was not entirely accurate.
In fact, Long might not return to the Eagles at all.
White was a first-round pick in 2015, but a pair of fractured legs and a broken shoulder blade have limited him to just five appearances and 21 catches at the professional level. That makes it all but impossible for the team to count on him in 2018, but White is still working on a way to finally do some good for the Bears offense.
White has been working out with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky in California over the last week and Trubisky gave an optimistic update on his teammate.
Kevin is working really hard to get back, and I’ve got a lot of faith in what he’s going to be able to bring to the table this year, Trubisky said on WSCR, via the Chicago Tribune. He’s looking good while we’re throwing together out here. And we’ve just got to continue to put in that work, and I know he’s busting his tail to really do big things this year.
There’s nothing White can do at this point to stop the Bears from addressing a receiving corps that would need help even if he were a surer thing for the coming season. Finding a way to stay on the field and add some positives to the offense would do wonders for extending a career that’s short on chances to get on track.
