RASHEAN MATHIS RUMORS

Detroit's Rashean Mathis doesn't expect a drop-off for Lions defense

Former Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was the biggest prize on the open market this offseason, and the Miami Dolphins signed him away with a $114 million contract. Another big peg in Detroit's defensive front was lost when Nick Fairley signed with the St. Louis Rams.

Can an undrafted free agent make the Jacksonville Jaguars active roster?

Why the Rashean Mathis signing was a big move for the Detroit Lions

Getting Rashean Mathis back to the Detroit Lions for a 2 year $3.5 Million contract was a huge signing for the team this off-season.

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?
