Titans release disgruntled wide receiver Rishard Matthews
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans have released wide receiver Rishard Matthews, whose production had dipped significantly this season.
Titans general manager Jon Robinson said Thursday that Matthews had asked Monday to be traded or released.
Matthews has just three receptions for 11 yards after catching over 50 passes for the Titans each of the previous two seasons. He had 65 catches for 945 yards and nine touchdowns in 2016 before following that up with 53 receptions for 795 yards and four touchdowns last year.
Matthews, who turns 29 on Oct. 12, joined the Titans in 2016 after spending his first four NFL seasons with the Miami Dolphins.
