The Detroit Lions appear to be thin on talent at cornerback, counting on veteran Rashean Mathis and second-year pro Darius Slay to be starters.
It caused a bit of a scare Monday when projected starting cornerback Darius Slay left practice accompanied by a trainer.
Working with the first team as Houston recovers from a toe injury, Slay is ready to play like he’s the man.
So much for your mock draft featuring the Lions taking a cornerback at No. 10 overall like everyone else’s. Well, they still might but there’s less of a chance with Detroit bringing Rashean Mathis back into the fold.
Not surprisingly, many believe Schwartz’s job is in jeopardy. The players on his team, at least publicly, seem to be the exceptions.
Detroit Lions defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham studied up on what Kelly has been doing in his brief time so far with the Eagles. Then he dug deeper.
As far as whether Sitton’s comments spurned that choice, Mosley said, “Nah, not at all.” Then he winked.
Many big, strong, manly football players do yoga, including superstar wide receiver Calvin Johnson, and almost all of them – yes, Burleson included – initially resisted taking up the practice.
Right or wrong, it is safe to say football does not look the way it used to.
Far from being resentful of his declining status, the 33-year-old Mathis takes care to build up his young teammates.
