Matthews has agreed to a three-year contract with the Titans, Rand Getlin of NFL Network reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Matthews caught 43 passes for 662 yards and four touchdowns in 2016 with Miami. That would have led the Titans in receiving last season, as Dorial Green-Beckham led Tennessee's wide receiving corps in yards with 549 (tight end Delanie Walker caught 94 passes for 1,088 yards as the top overall target). Look for him to take a major role in Tennessee's passing offense.

The Dolphins are interested in bringing back Matthews if the price is right, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Matthews had a breakout campaign in 2015 with 43 receptions for 662 yards and four scores but only played 11 games before suffering a rib injury that prematurely ended his season. The problem for Miami is that with Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker already locked in as starters Matthews may be able to get a bigger payday and more targets from another team.

Matthews (ribs) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Matthews' season ends with 43 catches for 662 yards and four touchdowns in 11 games, making it a clear breakout year for the 26-year-old wideout despite the disappointing ending. It also might go down as something close to a career year, on the other hand. Matthews is a free agent and even if he stays in Miami, Jarvis Landry and Devante Parker figure to be the team's target leaders for the foreseeable future.

Matthews (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

After being inactive in Week 16, Matthews remains iffy heading into the weekend. If he is forced to sit out Sunday's season finale, the Dolphins' wideout corps would once again be led by Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker.

Matthews (ribs) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Meanwhile, interim coach Dan Campbell hinted Wednesday that Matthews is not a lock to play Sunday against the Patriots, and with the 5-10 Dolphins out of playoff contention, there's seems to be a chance that the wideout will be held out this weekend as a precaution.

Matthews (ribs) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Dolphins took the day off on Christmas, but Matthews was listed as limited on Friday's practice participation estimation after practicing fully both Wednesday and Thursday. In any case, the official questionable designation indicates that there's a chance that the Dolphins will hold the wideout out of Sunday's game, a 1:00 ET kickoff.

Matthews (ribs) practiced fully Wednesday, the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Matthews, who last played in Week 12, thus appears to have a chance to play Sunday against the Colts, though if he is able to suit up, he'd be a speculative fantasy play in his return to action following a three-game absence.
