- Rashean Mathis is well aware that he's likely nearing the end of his NFL career.
Mathis, 34, said the writing is one the wall that this is probably the last contract of his career, but that's not his current mindset.— Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) June 1, 2015
- Once his football career does end, Mathis apparently may try his hand at another sport.

Rashean Mathis says he's down to a 4 handicap. He's just one of a number of Lions players participating in Charlie Sanders' golf outing.— Tim Twentyman (@ttwentyman) June 1, 2015

- Ryan Broyles told ESPN that his mindset going into the 2015 season is to "just make plays" and "the rest will take care of itself." Broyles is squarely on the roster bubble after not getting much playing time last season, but as noted in the ESPN piece, he's finally getting to experience an offseason where his focus isn't on rehabbing a serious injury. It will be interesting to see how much of a difference that makes for him this summer.
- According to the Lions' official site, Bill Bentley, who tore his ACL in last year's season-opening game, hasn't been participating in team drills during OTAs, but he has at least been on the field for individual work.
- The Lions played some flag football during their OTAs last week.
- I think it's safe to say Golden Tate is looking forward to playing his former team this year.
