While the move isn't official yet, Stephen Tulloch appears to be the latest Detroit Lions player to have been released. Tulloch has been a leader on and off the field since joining the team in 2011. His influence on the organization goes well beyond his play on the team, and if the outpour of love on social media is any sign, he will not easily be replaced. Several players went to Twitter to express their grattitude for Tulloch's influence on their respective lives.

Darius Slay

Slay was the first player to wish Tulloch good luck:

Later, Slay commented on the Lions' organization and their seemingly harsh decisions thus far:

Quandre Diggs

Diggs only played alongside Tulloch for one year, but still felt blessed enough to have been positively impacted by his presence:

Kyle Van Noy

Van Noy, who is likely one of the players most impacted by Tulloch's leadership, showed his gratitude for everything he's done for him:

Caraun Reid

Reid simply spoke to the man's greatness on and off the field:

Lance Moore

Although Moore played on the other side of the ball, he was positively influenced by Tulloch's leadership:

Good luck, Tully. The Lions have a near-impossible task of finding someone who can command a locker room like you can.
