DETROIT, MI (WTVB) -The Lions have released safety Louis Delmas and receiver Nate Burleson to free up salary cap space. The move will save the team $11.5 million-dollars and put Detroit over five-million dollars below the projected cap of $126-million. Delmas, a second round pick out of Western Michigan in the 2009 draft,  has had knee issues the last three seasons and was due 5.5 million-dollars in base salary with a $500,000 bonus. Burleson was in the final year of a $25-million contract. He was with the Lions for 4 seasons, but had missed 17 games in the past two years because of a broken arm and a broken leg.
