Getting bigger at DE. Adding possible depth for RAC's preferred defense.

Jeez, I guess I got exactly what I wanted. A quick web search reveals that they did, in fact, sign *anybody*, by which I mean *nobody*...
All I've ever accomplished related to the NFL is to get drunk and watch games and I've almost accomplished as much as Mathews.

Warm bodies on the DL were needed.

Some scouting on him from when he was drafted:

A solid senior season helped Mathews cap his collegiate career in strong fashion, but the defensive tackle isn't expected to be selected in the NFL draft. He ended his career at Cincinnati by helping the Bearcats win the Big East before losing 51-24 to Florida in the Sugar Bowl. Despite that impressive 12-1 season by the Bearcats, Mathews managed just 3 1/2 sacks in his only season as a starter and accumulated 44 tackles to rank 10th on the team. However, he managed to lead Cincinnati with 12 1/2 tackles for loss and was named second-team all-Big East. He's considered undersized and scouts are wary of his lack of athleticism and speed while playing in a defense that gave up an average of 143.8 rushing yards and 20 touchdowns. Mathews is seen as a project for the NFL, having some strength off the line but not enough to power through offensive linemen. He didn't live up to the promise with Cincinnati after being named first-team all-conference three times in high school while also winning a conference title in wrestling. Those skills could cause an NFL team to take a chance on him for some added depth.

Tried looking for more, they guy was a one year starter who came out of nowhere and seems to have returned to nowhere ever since.

Can't imagine him beating out Crick at this stage.

A depth signing for the D-line was needed, now I sure hope they go after an O-lineman preferably an OT.

^Ain't it the truth? New coaching regime seems to realize that teams who balance pretty good starters with decent reserves do better than teams with superstar starters and nothing backups.

How much are they paying the new signee?

Here, he looks like a 4-3 DE (I don't have a problem with a 6'3" DE in a 4-3).







He doesn't look like he's 6'3" 300lbs. He's either 6'5" or 280lbs

Interesting. In the release from the #Texans, they call Mathews a nose tackle. He's 6-3, 300 pounds.

The #Texans make the Ricardo Mathews signing official... he'll wear No. 94.

Some people around here spend far too much time developing an affinity for that UDFA sleeper that can change the face of the franchise to randomly dismiss everything as sarcasm.
