Lions part ways with WR Northcutt, LB Boiman

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions made two more cuts a day after setting their 53-man roster.

Detroit released wide receiver Dennis Northcutt and linebacker Rocky Boiman on Sunday.

The Lions acquired Northcutt last year in a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Northcutt had 35 receptions for 357 yards and a touchdown and returned 22 punts and three kickoffs last season for Detroit.

Boiman was with the Lions for less than a week. He had played for Detroit coach Jim Schwartz in Tennessee and defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham in Kansas City during his eight-year career.
