Lions GM Martin Mayhew said he is monitoring Nate Burleson's rehab from a broken leg closely.

The Lions are up against the salary cap once again this season and Burleson's current cap number is $6.5 million. He said he's willing to renegotiate and the Lions want one of their team leaders back, but he's going to have to be healthy. The depth chart behind Calvin Johnson is a mess with Ryan Broyles and Burleson coming off serious injuries and Titus Young a wild card.
