Ravens wide receiver Chris Matthews signed his exclusive rights tender Thursday, the team announced.

Matthews, 26, had nine catches for 97 yards and a touchdown in four games for the Ravens after he was let go in November by the Seattle Seahawks.

The 6-foot-5, 218-pound receiver and former Canadian Football League standout had his breakout game with the Seahawks in their Super Bowl XLIX loss to the New England Patriots with four catches for 109 yards and a touchdown.

His best game with the Ravens was the 2015 regular-season finale when he had four catches for 51 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals.

His signing leaves the Ravens with eight remaining exclusive rights free agents: wide receivers Kaelin Clay and Jeremy Butler, tight end Konrad Reuland, offensive linemen De'Ondre Wesley and Ryan Jensen, and defensive backs Jumal Rolle, Sheldon Price and Jermaine Whitehead.
