Lions finally cut Stephen Tulloch
The Detroit Lions finally cut middle linebacker Stephen Tulloch on Tuesday. They had told him four months ago he would be released. "As I have said numerous times since I became head coach of the Lions, Stephen Tulloch has been a consummate professional on and off the field," Lions coach Jim Caldwell said in a statement. "We thank him for his contributions to the Lions and the Detroit community and wish him the very best in all his future endeavors." Tulloch didn't pass a physical until Tuesday. He led the Lions with 107 tackles last season.
