The Miami Dolphins have signed wide receiver Rishard Matthews.

Matthews was the second of Miami’s two seventh round selections (227th overall) in the 2012 NFL Draft out of the University of Nevada.  A two year starter for the Wolf Pack, he played in 26 games with 25 in a starting role. Matthews recorded 147 receptions for 2,243 yards and 13 touchdowns along with 10 rushes for 75 yards and two scores. He also returned 48 punts for 551 yards and two touchdowns. Born October 12, 1989 in San Diego, California, Matthews attended Saddleback High School in Santa Ana, California.

“I handled that yesterday and put that in the past and today I wasn’t pleased with my practice so that’s what I’m focused on right now,” Matthews said. “I’m really close to my sister and I called her and talked to her and we just celebrated that moment.”
