On Saturday evening, the San Francisco 49ers released receiver Jordan Matthews for the second time this season.

Matthews was active for just one game while with the team.

His release means that the Eagles again lose a compensatory pick they would have gotten for his being signed by another team.

2019 Eagles Compensatory Pick Chart

Free Agents Lost
Free Agents Gained
New Team
Previous Team
QB Nick Foles Jacksonville Jaguars $22,000,000 3
LB Jordan Hicks Arizona Cardinals $9,000,000 4
WR Golden Tate New York Giants $9,350,000 5 S Andrew Sendejo Minnesota Vikings $1,300,000 7

Note: Golden Tate’s pick is reduced to a five because of his suspension for substance abuse.

Matthews also knows the Eagles offense and was arguably the team’s top deep threat down the stretch last season, making him a potential candidate to return to the roster with the Eagles missing DeSean Jackson.
