RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Casey Matthews.
Matthews, who notched 53 tackles in 16 games with the Eagles last season, suffered a season-ending hip injury while jumping over a hurdle during the Vikings' offseason conditioning program and was placed on IR in July.
Matthews plays 76 defensive snaps and 281 on special teams for the Eagles last year, but he hasn't shown the ability to make a defensive impact in his three pro seasons.
Matthews isn't guaranteed a roster spot, even as a former Chip Kelly player at Oregon. A torn ACL for Jason Phillips helps Matthews' odds, though. Matthews is competing with the likes of Jamar Chaney and Emmanuel Acho.
Matthews will compete for a starting outside linebacker role in Philadelphia, but his weak rookie season makes it difficult to expect much out of him.
