"I hope so. That's the plan," Matthews said. "It's all about mismatches and preferable lineups. Whenever we can take advantage of that, playing on the right side, left side, middle, wherever you want me to play, we're all about that, so I hope that's the case."
It's a bit of a misconception that Matthews struggled last year, but he wasn't as explosive as he was in 2010. (He still pressured the quarterback plenty.) Adding Perry to the mix, however, should help free defensive coordinator Dom Capers to move Matthews around.
