Casey Matthews never became the player the team expected when they drafted him in 2011. The hope was that he would be the team’s long term answer at MLB. Oops.
Matthews did become a solid backup and role player. He never got in trouble and left on good terms. Matthews is the kind of guy you hope finds a home somewhere else. The Vikings signed him in the offseason, but Matthews won’t be playing for them in 2015.

Matthews has a hip injury that he suffered while getting ready for the season. That doesn’t bode well for his NFL future. Good luck to him.
