Lions Cut Vanden Bosch, Peterman

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have released two veteran starters, cutting defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch and guard Stephen Peterman on Tuesday.

Vanden Bosch signed a four-year contract with Detroit worth $26 million when he arrived as a free agent before the 2010 season. He quickly earned respect in the locker room, but the price tag may have been too high this year for the 34-year-old.

Vanden Bosch made 15 ½ sacks in 43 games for Detroit. He started all 16 games last season. Peterman, who turned 31 last month, also started all 16 games.

The Lions went 4-12 last season. They released wide receiver Titus Young on Monday.
