90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Rishard Matthews

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at wide receiver Rishard Matthews.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

We bring back our annual look at the Miami Dolphins' roster heading into training camp, a series we call 90-in-90. Over the next 90 days (or a few more as roster changes happen), we will take a look at each individual player on the roster, review what they did in 2014 either in the NFL or in college, then take a look at how they might progress or regress this season, and the chances that player will make the roster.


2014 Review:

2014 was Mattews' third year with the Dolphins.

He appeared in 14 games and recorded 12 receptions for 135 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Why he might progress:

If Matthews could get some playing time, he could develop into a solid possession receiver.

Would like to see him get more snaps, but he is going to be buried on the depth chart.

Why he might regress:

Not a favorite of the coaches, which leads to less playing time.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

Matthews requested for a trade but was denied. Will probably be the fifth receiver on the roster. Could possibly be released.
