With another draft in the books and quite a few undrafted free agents being signed, the Lions decided to make some room on the roster by releasing four players:
RB Cedric Peerman
WR Michael Ray Garvin
DT Terrance Taylor
CB DeAngelo Smith
None of these releases are a big deal or anything, but I was hoping Terrance Taylor would succeed with the Lions simply because he went to the University of Michigan. He was with the Colts and Panthers before coming to Detroit and has been released and re-signed once before already. I guess in that regard it's possible that some of these four players could be brought back at a later date, although the Lions drafted a player at each of their positions, so then again, maybe not.
