Rishard Matthews in the DOG-HOUSE!

It looks like Dolphins WR Rishard Matthews is in Joe Philbin's dog house for some of his behind the scenes behavior. Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald is reporting Philbin had a long sit down talk with Matthews and laid out what he expects from him now and going forward. One of the reasons why Jarvis Landry was drafted was because the coaching staff isn't happy at all with Matthews and his antics.

Here is what Jackson had in his report..."The Dolphins haven’t been happy with Rishard Matthews for tardiness, lack of attention to detail and other issues --- one reason why they used a second-round pick on Jarvis Landry instead of being content with Matthews as their fourth receiver. Matthews admits it surprised him that Miami drafted two receivers (Landry and Matt Hazel).
But Matthews tells us he hopes a recent meeting with Joe Philbincleared things up. “I had some [missteps] my first couple years being young,” he said. “They want me to be more professional off the field, as well as on the field. That’s part of maturing. Little stuff, maybe being late to a couple of meetings. Coach Philbin sat down with me and gave me the ropes. We’re definitely on the same page.”
Even though Matthews has been productive, those ancillary issues have left him battling Armon Binns (who has looked very good), Damian Williams and former running back Marcus Thigpen for the fifth receiver job, barring injuries. Matthews has one less ally here with Jeff Ireland’sdeparture."
