Browns to workout Rishard Matthews

The Cleveland Browns are bringing in free agent wide receiver Rishard Matthews for a workout Monday according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Matthews was released by the Tennessee Titans on September 27 after requesting it following a diminished role in the offense.

He’s also scheduled to workout for the Arizona Cardinals on Tuesday according to Schefter.

A seventh-round pick by Miami in 2012, Matthews slowly became a reliable weapon for both the Dolphins and Titans in his seven-year NFL career.

In his seven NFL seasons, Matthews has 228 catches for 3,147 yards and 21 touchdowns.

His best season as a pro came in 2016 when he had 65 catches for 945 yards and nine touchdowns as Marcus Mariota’s go-to target.

In three career matchups against Cleveland, Matthews has six catches for 110 yards and a touchdown.

The Browns have a need at wide receiver despite early production from Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins and Antonio Callaway.

Cleveland dropped at least six passes last week in their 45-42 overtime loss to the Oakland Raiders and general manager John Dorsey is also looking to add talent as he continues to reshape the roster in his first full season in charge of personnel.
