Rishard Matthews asks Titans for release due to lack of playing time

Rishard Matthews is not a happy camper. He has had enough of his lack of playing time with the Tennessee Titans, and has asked the team to release him so he can find an opportunity elsewhere.

“I’ve been the leading receiver for two years. Then all of a sudden I’m barely playing and not even starting. Using my injury as the scapegoat. Look at number of snaps and targets.” Matthews told A to Z sports on Wednesday.

“Just wasn’t happy with what was going on, barely getting any playing time. It was time to move on”

The 28-year old receiver was in his third season with the franchise. In three games, he has recorded just three receptions for 11 yards.

He signed a one-year extension this offseason that was set to earn him a base value of $7.75 million in 2019 to go along with the $5 million he’s scheduled to earn this year.
