The Lions have once again brought in some veteran help for their struggling defense.
Rashean Mathis, the veteran cornerback who has been looking for work since becoming a free agent in March, signed with Detroit today.
This represents the third time that the Lions have signed a veteran for their defense in the last 48 hours, coming on the heels of the signings of defensive tackle Justin Bannan and linebacker Rocky McIntosh.
The Lions’ defense has struggled in each of the team’s two preseason games. Mathis, Bannan and McIntosh all have a good chance to make the 53-man roster and provide some useful depth on a unit that needs help.
