Niklas (25), played in 15 games this past season with 11 starts as he made most of his impact as a run blocker catching only 11 passes for 132 yards and a touchdown.
Matthews (25), made a big impact in the Philadelphia Eagles offense with over 60 receptions in his three seasons with the team. He was then traded to the Buffalo Bills where he caught 25 passes for 282 yards and a score before sustaining a season-ending knee injury.
Both men were taken in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
