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.
