The Eagles have signed their sixth of seven draft picks, according to the team, which announced today in a press release that second-round receiver Jordan Matthews has put pen to paper. Matthews’ deal means that first-rounder Marcus Smith is the only Philadelphia draftee who has yet to sign.
The 42nd overall pick earlier this month, Matthews figures to step in right away and contribute to a group of wideouts that also includes Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper. With DeSean Jackson no longer on the roster, there should be a few more targets to go around in 2014, and the Vanderbilt receiver will be in line for many of them.
According to Jason Fitzgerald of Over The Cap, Matthews’ four-year deal has a base value of about $4.949MM, including a signing bonus worth approximately $1.919MM.
