Reports: Matthews to sign with Jets


October 24, 2018

NEW YORK — Former Clovis High receiver Rishard Matthews will soon be back on an NFL roster, as he has reportedly agreed to sign with the New York Jets.

ESPN reported the news Tuesday morning.

The 29-year-old was released by the Tennessee Titans in September after he had requested a release or trade, citing displeasure with his limited role in the offense. He was released after the Titans couldn’t find any suitors.

Coming off injuries that limited him through the offseason and preseason, Matthews had not started once. He also had only three catches for 11 yards.

Matthews played for Clovis in the 2005 and 2006 seasons before moving to California. He remains Clovis’ career leader in receiving touchdowns (13) and is third in receiving yards (875).
