The free agent tour is finally over for Madison Academy grad Jordan Matthews.  According to ESPN's Adam Schefter the former Bills receiver is signing a one-year deal with the New England Patriots. 

The 2017-18 season was a tough one for Matthews.  After being traded from Philadelphia to Buffalo, he suffered a chip fracture in his sternum in his first practice with the Bills.  In week 4, he later fractured his thumb.  Following that, he missed another game in November after a knee injury that later resulted in him being placed on the injured reserve.  

In just 10 games last season he caught a career-low 25 passes for 282 yards and a touchdown.  

But that's all in the past as the receiver heads to New England for a fresh start with Brady and the Pats.
