Seahawks WR Chris Matthews caught four passes for 109 yards and a touchdown in Seattle's Super Bowl loss to New England.
A 2014 reserve/future signing out of the CFL, Matthews entered this game having never caught an NFL pass. By the end of the game, the Patriots were assigning Darrelle Revis to cover him. 6-foot-5 and 218 pounds, Matthews' big game is a reminder that the Seahawks are desperate for a legitimate vertical threat to complement Russell Wilson. Matthews is a player to monitor this offseason, but we're not counting on many future fireworks. Feb 1 - 10:33 PM

Seahawks WR Chris Matthews was fined $11,025 for making an obscene gesture in last Sunday's NFC Championship Game win.

The fine has drawn attention because of Marshawn Lynch's response on Twitter, but seems warranted, and is unlikely to be reversed on appeal. A blocker and special teamer, Matthews was active just three times during the regular season. He has never caught a pass in an NFL game.

Seahawks signed WR Chris Matthews to a reserve/future contract.

We don't post every futures signing, but this one caught our eye because Seattle gave Matthews a $10,000 signing bonus. Few futures players get guaranteed money. Matthews, 24, earned the CFL's Rookie of the Year award in 2012, posting an 81-1,192-7 line for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. He missed most of last season with back and turf-toe injuries. Matthews played college ball at Kentucky and ran a 4.57 forty at 6'5/218 at the Wildcats' 2011 Pro Day.
