Touring SB Nation: It's Jordan Matthews' world, apparently

Let's look at the NFL headlines from around SB Nation.

Something we don't do often enough, which seems to be what I say every time we do this, is look around the other outstanding football sites here at SB Nation and see what they are writing about. It's a little thing I have always called "Touring SB Nation.' With the New York Giants relaxing on this 'Weatherford Wednesday,' let's do that.

Jordan Matthews Rules The World

Our friends at Bleeding Green Nation apparently think rookie wide receiver Jordan Matthews is pretty good.

There is also a practice report gushing over the rookie's awesomeness.

Valentine's View: Maybe Matthews will be pretty good, maybe he won't. I know BGN's report is somewhat tongue-in-cheek,  but let's not put Matthews in the Pro Football Hall of Fame just yet. He hasn't played a game yet. The Hall of Fame is where players like Michael Strahan go. Let's see what Matthews can do when it counts.

Tyron Smith Gets Paid

The Dallas Cowboys have signed the star left tackle to an eight-year extension that pushes the value of his current contract to 10 years and $109 million. That's quarterback money. Let's see how the folks at BTB react to this news.
