Lions Release WR Nate Burleson

Bengals v Lions

The Lions have informed wide receiver Nate Burleson that he’s being released today, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. The move saves about $5.5 million in salary cap room but leaves the locker room short a leader.

“It’s a hard decision for them to make, but I can’t blame them for making it,” Burleson said.

He still intends to play in 2014.
