Lions to cut Stephen Tulloch

The Detroit Lions plan to cut veteran middle linebacker Stephen Tulloch. "What a journey it's been Detroit!" Tulloch wrote on Instagram. "Five years of some of the greatest memories of my career. I can't put into words how grateful I am to have played for such a great organization. I want thank the Ford family the front office the strength coaches, trainers, equipment staff and everybody in between for everything you have done for me over the years. "Last but not least I want to thank the community of Detroit for being behind me and my foundation over the years in making a difference in many lives. Such as life there is constant change. But change that I'm looking forward to. As one chapter closes in my career another one opens up." Tulloch, 31, has recorded 100 tackles per season in four of the past five seasons. He missed 13 games in 2014 with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Last year, Tulloch didn't play as many snaps. Tulloch was due $6 million and a $500,000 roster bonus on the fifth day of the league year. Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
