Lions release four players

The Lions were the latest to lighten their roster Monday, but there were no big names involved.

John Niyo of the Detroit News reports that the Lions cut running back Cedric Peerman,
cornerback DeAngelo Smith, defensive tackle Terrance Taylor and wide receiver Michael Ray Garvin
.

Smith was a 2009 fifth-round pick by the Cowboys.  Peerman was a sixth-round pick of the Ravens last year out of Virginia.
