Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young returned to OTAs last week after a week-long hiatus from the team's facility. His absence came after an incident happened with Louis Delmas and resulted in Delmas allegedly getting sucker punched by Young. When he returned, Young apologized via a statement, but he didn't speak to the media.
On Monday, Young broke his silence and fielded questions from the media. He didn't address specifics about the incident with Delmas, but he did make it pretty clear that he is sincerely sorry about what happened and is ready to put it behind him. He also made it pretty clear that all is well with Delmas and his other teammates.
"I'm fine with everybody," Young said. "We were just joking in the training room. He just kicked my foot up in the training room. I laughed at him. We're just joking around. Brotherly love, man.
"Just like I joke with you guys (media). Sometimes you (media) might get on my nerves. Sometimes I might get on your nerves, but it's all love."
Considering all of the negative stuff that has happened with members of the 2011 draft class this offseason, it was nice to hear Young's perspective on his incident. He not only showed maturity in how he answered some of the questions thrown his way, but he also made me believe that something like this will not happen again. Some of his fellow 2011 draftees should take notes.
