New York Jets sign WR Rishard Matthews

The New York Jets signed free agent wide receiver Rishard Matthews, the team announced Tuesday.

Matthews, 29, reportedly worked out with the Jets last week. He was granted his release from the Tennessee Titans at the end of September.

Matthews had just three catches for 11 yards in three games with the Titans, but he tallied 161 grabs for 2,402 yards and 17 scores over the previous three seasons.

The Jets released wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, who had been battling a groin injury, on Saturday and are expected to be without wideout Quincy Enunwa (high-ankle sprain) for a few weeks.

New York opened a roster spot for Matthews by placing safety Doug Middleton (torn pectoral muscle) on injured reserve. Middleton had 27 tackles in seven games (four starts) this season.
