Matthews was also reported to be on the New England Patriots' radar.
A first-time starter in 2015, Matthews was en route to a breakout season, averaging nearly five receptions and 72 yards through nine games. He ended up missing all of December after suffering multiple fractured ribs in a Week 12 loss to the New York Jets.
The 26-year-old isn't a burner, but works the short and intermediate routes with aplomb and showcases adequate run-after-catch ability. Although he has been in and out of the doghouse in Miami, he has produced when given the opportunity to play starter's snaps.
