Lions yesterday continued their early offseason roster purge with the team informing both veteran defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch and starting right guard Stephen Peterman of their release. The decisions came one day after the Lions placed wide receiver Titus Young on waivers following a turbulent season for the 2011 second-round draft pick. Vanden Bosch's departure was fully expected with the 34-year-old coming off a drop in production this past season. The Lions will save $5 million towards next year's salary cap with the move. Peterman, who was due a $2.65 million salary, started all 49 games at right guard for Detroit over the past three seasons and had been with the organization since 2006. It didn't take Titus Young long to find a new home, as the St. Louis Rams claimed him off waivers on Tuesday.
