Lions Sign Veteran CB Rashean Mathis

Tim Twenytyman of rpeorts that the Lions have signed CB Rashean Mathis.

CB Trevor Coston was released to make room for the more experienced Mathis. In the past few days, the Lions have also signed veterans DT Justin Bannan and LB Rocky McIntosh.

Mathis, who will be 33 years old later this month, is no longer the Pro-Bowler he once was, especially after having torn his ACL in 2011. However, he will add some much needed veteran presence on a young Lions defense. Mathis more than likely will be a package or rotation player as long as his knee remains healthy enough.
