Nate Burleson (IR, leg) admitted that he could be released next season.

Burleson is staring at eight months of rehab after breaking his left in Week 7. When he returns, he'll be 32 and owed $4.5 million in base salary. As the Lions are finding out now, their offense runs smoother with Titus Young opposite Calvin Johnson and Ryan Broyles in the slot. "With them balling out completely, it could leave me the odd man out," Burleson said.
