In only the second year of his four year extension contract, DeAndre Levy is set to be released by the Detroit Lions.

The Detroit Free Press, among others, are reporting that the Lions will release the veteran linebacker. He will be designated a June 1 release, granting almost $6 million in cap relief (Levy’s dead cap money is $7.2 million this year, per Spotrac).

Levy appeared in just six games over the last two seasons with Detroit, this in contrast to missing just seven games over his first six seasons with the Lions.

Levy was a third round pick out of Wisconsin in the 2009 draft.

In his career as a Lion Levy amassed 454 tackles, 34 pass breakups and 12 interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns over eight years.
