Jordan Matthews at risk of losing snaps?

The speculation that Jordan Matthews will lose playing time at slot wide receiver to Nelson Agholor was not quieted by offensive coordinator Frank Reich, who said Monday that the plan at the position “is a little bit different than last year.” “Right now, the whole receiver room is more competitive. ... So yeah, I think it is a little bit different than last year. I don’t know how it’s going to play out. Is it going to be a reduced role? Is it not? ... That’s going to be determined … by how he plays and how things play out in that room competitively,” Reich said. (Philadelphia Inquirer)

FFToday's Take: Reich suggested Matthews can play outside and there will be four-wide packages on occasion, but he also said he doesn't want to take his tight ends off the field either. Considering the team added Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith before Agholor's "awakening", Matthews very much appears to be in a fight for playing time. Owners would be wise to consider him a low-eend WR4 at best and start considering Agholor at the end of drafts.
