PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Carson Wentz and Jordan Matthews were Bible study buddies.

The two bonded immediately in Wentz’s rookie season in 2016 and now they have a chance to bond again.

The Birds worked out Matthews Tuesday and signed him Wednesday morning. They also placed wide receiver Mike Wallace on injured reserve.

Until Wednesday morning, he was a free agent after being released by the Patriots.

The Eagles traded him to Buffalo before the start of last season.

Matthews is just 26 years old and spent his first three years in Philly.
