Lions Cut Two Veterans

The Detroit Lions Thursday released two veteran players to save some salary cap money. Receiver Nate Burleson was let go along with safety Louis Delmas, both of whom have been plagued by injuries through their careers. The Lions are expected to save $11 million in salary cap room with the moves. Burleson played four years for the Minnesota Vikings and then the last four with the Lions. He missed seven games this past season because of a car accident, but did catch 39 passes for 461 yards and one touchdown. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion.
