AP source: Titans agree to terms with receiver Matthews

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) A person familiar with negotiations says the Tennessee Titans have agreed to terms with Miami wide receiver Rishard Matthews.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Wednesday night because the deal hadn't been finalized.

ESPN.com first reported the three-year deal.

Matthews is coming off his best season, catching 43 passes for 662 yards and four touchdowns. He also averaged 15.4 yards per reception. The 6-foot, 217-pound wide receiver out of Nevada has 107 catches for 1,396 yards and eight TDs in his four-year career.

Adding Matthews gives the Titans another receiving option for Marcus Mariota. Tennessee was led in yards receiving by tight end Delanie Walker last season, and rookie Dorial Green-Beckham led the team's receivers with 549 yards.
