Mathis has already been in Detroit for the past two years and has proved himself to keep a roster spot and this signing has a lot of meaning behind it. To start off, he is an experienced veteran who hasn’t lost his step. At age 33 last year, he played...

Detroit Lions re-sign CB Rashean Mathis

Rashean Mathis looked done after 2012, as he graded out below average in 2012, missed 11 games with injury in 2011 and 2012 combined, and was going into his age 33 season.

He’s a risky signing because...

After strong season, aging Mathis believes he has more to give

Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew admittedly didn't initially see this reemergence of cornerback Rashean Mathis' career coming a couple years ago. Mayhew had to be talked into even giving Mathis a tryout by Sheldon White, the Lions' vice president of pro personnel. Who can blame Mayhew?
