NFL Injury Report:
One day after releasing problem receiver Titus Young, the Detroit Lions look set to dump expensive salary from their experienced roster as well.
According to USA Today, 11-year defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch has been informed by Detroit that he will be released.
In 2010, he signed a four-year deal worth $26 million, and heading into 2013, Vanden Bosch was scheduled to make $5 million, with two further years at $8m total salary.
After recording eight sacks in 2012, Vanden Bosch's totals dropped to 3.5 this season, yet only 16 sacks in the last three seasons total. This would be deemed not favourable statistics for a team that prides itself on its defensive play.
Hopefully the exit of KVB from the roster will free up enough salary cap to offer to soon-to-be free agent Cliff Avril, who they hope will re-sign to a favourable contract.
The Lions are making early moves with the salary cap to improve having finished last in the competitive NFC North with a 4-12 record having lost their last 8 games of the regular season.

He’s the poster child for the term “character risk.” Starting with his collegiate days at Boise State, Young has never been short of words…or actions for that matter. He was suspended for the majority of his...
