Lions Release Vanden Bosch

Posted: Updated:
ALLEN PARK, MI - The Detroit Lions have released defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch.

   Vanden Bosch signed a four-year contract with Detroit worth $26 million when he arrived as a free agent before the 2010 season. He quickly earned respect in the locker room, but the price tag may have been too high this year for the 34-year-old.

   Vanden Bosch made 15 ½ sacks in 43 games for Detroit. He started all 16 games last season.

   The Larchwood, Iowa native has earned three Pro Bowl selections in 11 NFL seasons.

    The Lions went 4-12 last season.
