Old face, same place. It's deja vu all over again. 


Former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews has officially become a Philadelphia Eagle – again.


That should have Philly fans and fantasy owners thinking back to Matthews' glory days with Philadelphia in the 2014-15 seasons.

Between his rookie and sophomore seasons back in Philly, Matthews caught more than 150 passes for 1,869 yards and 16 touchdowns. After three years in Philly, the Eagles traded him to the Buffalo Bills, where his career took a downward spiral after suffering a knee injury. The Patriots signed him the following season, but a hamstring injury railroaded any chances he had of catching on with the team. 

With Eagles receiver Alshon Jeffery still sidelined by injury, Nelson Agholor has been carrying the load. While it's fun to romanticize Matthews' first two seasons of success in Philly, it should be noted that neither was with Carson Wentz under center. Matthews' worst season as an Eagles receiver was with Wentz at quarterback, albeit, in Wentz's rookie year. 


Wentz will return to the Eagles for Week 3, which has Philly fans understandably excited.
