The Patriots is slated to sign WR Matthews to a one-year contract deal, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Thursday, April 5th.

Matthews was in Foxboro Monday for a visit.

In three seasons with the Eagles, Matthews would average 75 receptions, 891 yards and 6 scores per season. As for Matthews, there's a productive receiver in there. Matthews only played in 10 games a year ago due to injuries. Last season, Cooks was a great deep threat for the Patriots, as he totaled over 1,000 receiving yards. He had 225 catches in his three seasons with Philadelphia. He just wasn't that for the Buffalo Bills last season, racking up just 282 yards on 25 receptions over 10 games. He will be playing alongside Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Malcolm Mitchell as Bill Belichick continues to get weapons for Tom Brady.

Matthews will compete for the No. 3 position behind Edelman and Hogan. Given the trade of Brandin Cooks to the Rams, the Patriots were likely shopping for a reliable option to add to the wide receiver corps, and Matthews fits the profile. With both Cooks and Amendola gone, the Patriots' wide receiving core will look different next season. Hogan alongside running back Mike Gillislee and cornerback Stephon Gilmore also are former Bills professional American football players. Acquiring the first round pick for Cooks is certainly a good deal for the Patriots, as they now have two first-round picks.

Jordan Matthews went on the free agency tour, meeting with Green Bay, Arizona, and Tennessee.

Even with all the changes on offense, the New England Patriots are still the odds on favorite to win Super Bowl 53.
