Lions Continue Early Roster Purge- Release Stephen Peterman

Dave Birkett has reported via Twitter that the Lions will release starting Right Guard Stephen Peterman.

Peterman, in the final year of his contract, was slated to count for $3.278 million against the 2013 salary cap. The move frees up $3.25 million in cap room and will reduce their active roster cap commitments to about $123 million. I would expect the Lions to continue to be active in the coming days as they try to create cap room to have a workable free agency period.
