On Thursday, Stephen Tulloch posted a message to his Instagram account thanking the Detroit Lions organization and the fans. It is expected that Tulloch will indeed be released by the team in the coming weeks due to his salary outweighing his production on the field.
So, how will the Lions replace Tulloch in 2016? Will they keep things in house? Will they look to the free agent market and sign a big name? Will they use their first round pick to grab an immediate starter? Time will tell.
Here are 5 players who could replace Stephen Tulloch on the Detroit Lions in 2016.

One way the Lions could decide to replace Stephen Tulloch is to go the free agency route. The top inside linebacker who could be available is Danny Trevathan of the Denver Broncos. Trevathan, who is 25, led the Broncos in tackles in two of the past three seasons and could become available if Denver is not willing to pay.
