Report: Lions release Titus Young

According to Tim Twentyman of, the Lions have released disgruntled wide receiver Titus Young.

Young’s behavior and attitude last season put the franchise in a bad position – one that ultimately led to today’s decision. It started last spring when Young allegedly punched teammate Louis Delmas, which resulted in Young leaving the team for a short time.

He was banned from the team two more times during the regular season; once in November for intentionally lining up wrong in a game vs. the Packers and for insubordination, and again when he didn’t sufficiently take advantage of the second chance afforded to him when he was allowed to return from that dismissal.

Young made it clear last month that he wanted out and he now got his wish.  Now we’ll see if he ever plays in the NFL again.  I’m not sure teams around the NFL are willing to deal with his attitude problems.
