Detroit Lions cut Kyle Vanden Bosh and Stephen Peterman
Now that the NFL season is over it is time to watch what adjustments teams will make for the 2013-2014 season. On Tuesday, the Detroit Lions cut Kyle Vanden Bosh and Stephen Peterman.
Before the 2010 season, Vanden Bosh signed a four year contract worth $26 million with the Detroit Lions, according to the Associated Press.
In his 43 games with the Lions he made 15 1/2 tackles and started in 16 games last season.
He will be missed by his teammates. Cliff Avril, Lions defenseman tweeted:
“Heard they just release the one guy that took me under his wing, a great teammate, a great person, my brother KVB…”
Peterman started all 48 games in this past three years with the Detroit Lions. This seasons the Lions finished 4-12 and are looking for ways to improve the team. Monday they let Titus Young go as well.
Jim Schwartz, head coach, has made statements along the lines of some big changes, according to the Detroit Free Press. At the senior bowl he said, “prepared for a lot of different ways,” when he was asked about his offensive line next season.
“We have developed some pretty good players there and we have some good players in the pipeline. If we think the best course of action is to go there then we’re prepared for that,” said Schwartz.
This is the time to change and there will surely be many more changes to this team for next season.
