What a week for Carson Wentz. "So then she got pregnant".

The Philadelphia Eagles are finally getting some help at receiver, and they're turning to an old friend.

Trying to infuse some life into a banged-up wide receiving corps, the Eagles have brought back wide receiver Jordan Matthews to a one-year deal. With Mack Hollins and Wallace both out with long-term injuries, the Eagles were left with Nelson Agholor and Kamar Aiken as their main options at wide receiver. Matthews, who spent the first three seasons of his career with the team, was signed because the team placed veteran receiver Mike Wallace on injured reserve.

The Eagles also lost another wideout Tuesday, cutting DeAndre Carter to make room for running back Josh Adams, who was promoted from the practice squad. However, he suffered a significant hamstring injury just before training camp and was subsequently released. "Ain't nothing to do there, except each other", Matthews said, via NBC Philadelphia.

Matthews, 26, was originally the Eagles' second-round pick in 2014.

Before the trade, Matthews showed promise with the Eagles, averaging 75 receptions for 891 yards and 6.3 touchdowns over his three seasons.

Following the season, Matthews had surgery on his ankle and knee.
