Matthews knows he is in a great position to earn playing time with the departures of three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver DeSean Jackson and Jason Avant.
Matthews isn’t worried about snaps. It’s all about performing well at OTAs and preparing like he always has in the past.
“That's what you see every day. Great players everywhere here,” Matthews told Philadelphiaeagles.com. “I'm learning as much as I can, seeing how these players go about their business.”
As a senior at Vanderbilt, Matthews racked up 112 receptions, 1,477 yards and seven touchdowns.
His work habits put him in this position and he plans on doing more of the same to earn his spot on the team.
“I've worked hard to get here, and I know it's going to take even more work to stay here and play at the level I want to play,” Matthews told Philadelphiaeagles.com. “So I understand that everything is larger in the NFL. That's not my focus. I'm focused on coming to work every day and playing the game and making myself better. That's the only thing that matters to me. How can I help this team win games?”
