What Re-signing Rashean Mathis Means for the Lions’ Organization

The Detroit Lions re-signed veteran cornerback Rashean Mathis on Monday. Last year, Mathis led the Lions’ secondary not only in age, but also stats.

With Mathis coming back to the roster, and the Lions’ recent signing of former Indianapolis Colts corner Cassius Vaughn, the total number of defensive backs on the roster rises to seven. The Lions’ secondary is also equipped with two underrated safeties in former Ravens Super Bowl champion James Ihedigbo and Detroit’s returning safety Glover Quin. Behind Quin and Ihedigbo is reliable veteran Don Carey and recent signing Isa Abdul-Quddus.

One Lion’s Trash is Another Dolphin’s Treasure

March 10: Dolphins sign Ex-Lions Safety Louis Delmas

April 2: Dolphins sign former Lions OT Jason Fox

* * *

The above headlines might have Dolphins fans scratching their heads. Why are the Dolphins scraping up the Detroit Lions’ throwaways?

Miami lost their starting safety Chris Clemons this offseason to free agency and instantly replaced him with Louis Delmas. Arguably, Delmas may have been one of the better safeties on the board this offseason after being cut by the Lions. However, essentially they just replaced an average safety in Clemons with an average safety in Delmas. Unless Delmas begins to perform at a higher standard in South Beach.

The infamous Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin bullying scandal has created a bit of a hole in the Dolphins’ offensive line. This is why the Lions’ ex-offensive lineman Jason Fox was signed. Fox could be a starter in Miami, but the worst case scenario is that he is a reliable backup veteran.

Now the Dolphins are checking out Detroit’s beloved Nate Burleson who they released earlier this year. We all know Burleson’s potential and what he can contribute to the offense, but unfortunately Burleson could not come through for the Lions last season after his pizza incident.

Well Miami, more power to you. Teams have needs, and I guess the Lions’ offseason losses were tailored to Miami’s needs.

Opinion: Lions Should Dip Paws into Free Agency This March

The Detroit Lions’ offseason agenda is so hazy, not even a fortune teller could predict it.

Mark your calendars because March will be a big month. March 8 is when the free agency flirting begins followed by the March 11 date of when signatures and dollar signs can be inked into contracts. The Detroit Lions can start camp two weeks earlier than the normal April 21 offseason workouts because of the recent signing of new head coach, Jim Caldwell. These dates are creeping up, and the decisions are about to be made.
