The status of Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young is up in the air heading into the offseason. While Lions head coach Jim Schwartz did leave the door open for Young to potentially return based on some comments he made earlier this week, it's not clear what the Lions plan to do with him. Will he get another chance? Will the Lions attempt to trade him? Will he just be released? It's anyone's guess at this point.
With all that said, there was an interesting development (if you can even call it that) with the Young story on Wednesday. According to Dave Birkett, Young was at the Lions facility. What's even more interesting is that his parents were with him.
Titus Young at Lions facility today - with his parents. Didn't really respond to an interview request. Lions security declined on his behalf— Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) January 2, 2013
What exactly does this mean? I'm not really sure. I don't think parent-coach conferences are actually a thing, but I can't imagine his parents would be with him unless it was to meet with Schwartz and/or Lions general manager Martin Mayhew. Perhaps the Lions requested this, or perhaps this is simply Young trying to work his way back into the team's good graces. Whatever the case, it's certainly an interesting tidbit.
