"We talked. Moving forward I see from not only our coach's expectations, but my own expectations (are there) for playing inside," Matthews said.
"I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the change. At the same time, I'm very good at getting after the quarterback off the edge, so I think there's a fine line. So, we'll see. Week in and week out you never knew if I was going to be there 100 percent of the snaps or only 10. We'll see what that means moving forward."
However, finding a true inside linebacker through the draft or in free agency will be general manager Ted Thompson's top priority to allow Matthews to play his natural position.
"I enjoy it (but) at the same time, I specialize at being a pass rusher and an outside linebacker," Matthews said.
