Former Dolphins receiver Rishard Matthews and the Titans have agreed to terms on a contract, pending a physical.

Matthews is coming off his best season as a pro.

In 2015, his first year as a full-time starter, Matthews had a career-high 43 catches for 662 yards and four touchdowns in 10 games, before exiting early in the 11th game with a season-ending rib injury.

In four NFL seasons, Matthews has 107 catches for 1,396 yards and eight touchdowns.

Matthews, seventh-round pick in 2012 out of Nevada, joins a group of Titans receivers that includes veteran Kendall Wright and Harry Douglas, along with Justin Hunter, Dorial Green-Beckham and Tre McBride.

Green-Beckham led all Titans receivers with 549 receiving yards on 32 catches in his rookie season in 2015, although tight end Delanie Walker led the team in catches (94) and receiving yards (1,088).

Douglas and Wright had 36 catches each in 2015, while Hunter made 22 catches before a season-ending injury.
