Veteran cornerback Rashean Mathis has re-signed with the Detroit Lions according to a report from Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post.
Mathis, who was signed as a veteran backup last August, started 13 games for the Lions in 2013.
The 33-year-old corner had 47 tackles and 15 pass defenses in 15 games.
He was a valuable asset as a veteran leader for the young cornerback group.
Chris Houston and Darius Slay are expected to start this season, but don’t count out Mathis. The Lions also signed free agent corner Cassius Vaughn who was with the Indianapolis Colts the last two seasons.
