Badly in need of wide receivers, the Jets are reportedly signing former Dolphin and Titan Rishard Matthews.

ESPN's Adam Schefter was the first to report on the expected move Tuesday.

The Jets' leading receiver, Quincy Enunwa, is sidelined with a high ankle sprain, and the team was forced to released Terrelle Pryor after he went down with a groin injury. That left the Jets on Sunday with Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse and a trio of journeymen and special-teamers at wide receiver. 

Matthews, 29, was released by Tennessee last month after he left the team in an apparent dispute over playing time. The seven-year veteran has caught 228 passes for 3,147 yards with 21 touchdowns over his career. His best season came with the Titans in 2016, when he had 65 receptions for 945 yards and nine TDs.
