The Detroit Lions announced that they have released six players: CB Leigh Bodden, TE Dan Campbell, OT Jon Dunn, WR Mike Furrey, G Edwin Mulitalo and S Dwight Smith.
Bodden recorded 73 tackles and one interception for the Lions in 15 starts this past season after having been traded by the Cleveland Browns, along with a third-round draft pick, for DT Shaun Rogers last February.
Furrey, a six-year veteran, started 26 games in three seasons with the Lions, including a 2006 campaign in which he caught 98 passes for 1,086 yards and six touchdowns in 14 starts. Furrey started just two games in 2008, making 18 receptions for 181 yards.
Smith, who played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Super Bowl championship team in the 2002 season, joined the Lions in 2008 after stints with the Saints and Vikings. Smith played in 10 games with Detroit, logging 41 tackles.
