Since the draft is over it is now proper time to assess the depth chart. This is a projection as to how the Lions will enter their first mini-camp. This entry focuses on the offense, and we’ll tackle the defense later.


On the Release of Peterman and VandenBosch

A day after releasing malcontent wideout Titus Young, the Lions made two more moves with much broader significance on Tuesday. Two longtime starters, right guard Stephen Peterman and defensive end Kyle VandenBosch, were released by GM Martin Mayhew.

On the surface, these moves are all about saving money under the salary cap. The constraints forced on the Lions having to pay over $50M of the approximately $122M cap number to just three players (Stafford, Suh, Johnson) mean that pennies must be pinched. Young’s release did little to impact that bottom line, but the Tuesday moves are a significant step forward in cap reduction.
