Rashean Mathis sounds excited to serve as a mentor to third-round pick Alex Carter, and the two have actually known each other for quite some time now.
- When it came to signing Josh Wilson, the third time was the charm for Martin Mayhew.
Calvin Johnson and Golden Tate had an outstanding reaction when a couple got engaged in front of them at the "Taste of the Lions" event earlier this week.
