Lions to Release WR Bryant Johnson

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports that the Lions will release wide receiver Bryant Johnson to open up salary cap room.

Johnson was due to make $3.2 million in base salary this year, an exorbitant amount for a No. 4 receiver coming off an 18-catch season. Johnson never lived up to his three-year, $9 million deal, managing just 53 catches, 627 yards, and three TDs in two seasons. Second-rounder Titus Young will take over as Detroit’s third receiver.
