Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch is saying goodbye to Detroit.
The team is cutting the 31-year-old veteran. He spent five seasons with the Lions.
Tulloch returned from injury last season and saw his playing time diminish. He spent five seasons with the Lions.
The move will save the team $6 million in salary cap space for the 2016 season, but he'll still count $1.3 million against the cap.
He posted a goodbye message to the city's fans tonight.
What a journey it's been Detroit! Five years of some of the greatest memories of my career. I can't put into words how grateful I am to have played for such a great organization. I want thank the Ford family the front office the strength coaches, trainers, equipment staff and everybody in between for everything you have done for me over the years. Last but not least I want to thank the community of Detroit for being behind me and my foundation over the years in making a difference in many lives. Such as life there is constant change. But change that I'm looking forward to. As one chapter closes in my career another one opens up.#Detroit#MuchLoveAndRespect#Operation55
