The Calgary Stampeders signed international receiver Chris Matthews on Tuesday.
3Downnation insider Justin Dunk first reported the deal Monday.
Matthews fills a need for Calgary, which has four receivers injured – Eric Rogers, DaVaris Daniels, Kamar Jorden and Reggie Begelton. Rogers, however, is expected to return soon from a knee injury.
Matthews had four catches for 109 yards and a TD in Seattle’s 28-24 loss to the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX.
“Chris is a talented, big-bodied receiver with experience both in the CFL and the NFL,” John Hufnagel, Calgary’s president/GM, said in a statement. “With our current situation at the receiver position, we were pleased to be able to sign someone with Chris’s experience.”
Calgary (11-2) visits Montreal (3-11) on Monday having already clinched a playoff spot. The Stampeders can cement a home post-season game with a victory or tie against the Alouettes.
