The Detroit Lions have launched veteran guard T.J. Lang.
Detroit launched the switch Friday. The two-time Pro Bowl alternative started six video video games in 2018. Lang started 13 video video games in 2017, his first season with the Lions.
“We would like to personally thank T.J. Lang for his two seasons with the Lions,” Lions authorities vp and primary supervisor Bob Quinn and coach Matt Patricia said in a joint assertion. “He represented everything you could want from a football player and team captain.”
“We all publicly saw him perform on the field at a very high level, but what was seen in the building every day was a player who had great leadership, professionalism and passion for the game of football. It meant a lot for T.J. to play in his home city and we have the utmost respect for him as a man. We wish T.J. and his family all the best in the future.”
The 10-year veteran missed 10 video video games in 2018 ensuing from a neck hurt.
Lang posted on Twitter that included a quote from the movie Friday, finding out: “How you going to get fired on your day off?”
“Gotta have a little fun right? Love you Lions,” Lang tweeted.
Lang had one yr remaining on his contract. The 31-year-old lineman would have been an $11.5 million wage cap hit for the Lions, who freed up $8.8 million in cap space by releasing him.
