The Lions had until 4 p.m. today to pare their 90-man roster down to the 75-player limit.
They also released receivers Jarett Dillard, Dominique Curry and Terrence Toliver, fullback James Bryant, running back Stephfon Green, safeties Sean Jones and Isaac Madison, guards Jacques McClendon and J.C. Oram, linebacker Slade Norris and defensive tackle Bobby Skinner today.
