Darius Slay is quite excited that Rashean Mathis is back under contract with the Detroit Lions.
I'm glad they sign my boi back— Darius slay (@_bigplayslay9) March 18, 2015
- I can't say I expected Garrett Reynolds to get a deal like this based on how he performed for the Lions last season:
It's a two-year $2.2M deal for OL Garrett Reynolds and the #Rams, a source said. Contract has a max value of $4.2M.— Rand Getlin (@Rand_Getlin) March 18, 2015
- Martin Mayhew attended Michigan State's pro day on Wednesday.
- Georgia running back Todd Gurley met with several members of the Lions organization during his visit to Allen Park on Monday.
- Despite losing Ndamukong Suh, the Lions' Super Bowl odds haven't changed for next season.
- The Lions had a whole lot of different lineups on offense last season:

Calvin Johnson got engaged this week.
- SB Nation's latest 2015 NFL mock draft has the Lions taking Florida State defensive tackle Eddie Goldman in the first round.
- Quite a few rule changes have been proposed for the 2015 NFL season. Most of them revolve around replay and what can actually be reviewed, but this is a pretty, well, unique idea:
Colts proposing if go for 2 points after TD and make it, can attempt bonus kick for 9th point from midfield.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) March 18, 2015
