Lions Release Disgruntled Wide Receiver Titus Young
The Detroit Lions parted ways with disgruntled wide receiver Titus Young on Monday afternoon.
According to the Detroit Free Press, the Lions made the move on the first day they were able to after the Super Bowl.
Young has had numerous issues since joining the team as a second round draft pick out of Boise State in 2011. He was sent home by the team three times in a seven month span since last May including one incident in which he punched teammate Louis Delmas.
In a November loss to the Green Bay Packer, Young reportedly lined up in the wrong spot on purpose. He was suspended the final six games of last season.
Young had taken to Twitter the past few weeks to voice his displeasure with the team and at one point said “if y’all going to cut me, let me go. I am tired of the threats.”
