Detroit Lions release Titus Young

The Detroit Lions have parted ways with wide receiver Titus Young.

The Detroit Lions have released wide receiver Titus Young. The team made the move official on Monday afternoon after rosters were unlocked following the Super Bowl.

This comes as no surprise given how Young has handled himself this offseason. He went on multiple embarrassing Twitter rants in January that only further proved he has no place on this team. This came after he was sent home multiple times in 2012. The first time was after he punched a teammate last summer, and the Lions sent him home again during the season after he allegedly lined up incorrectly on purpose.

Honestly, the Lions should have made this move months ago. I know they wanted to wait and see if they might be able to get something out of Young in terms of a trade, but they gave him too many chances. He has proved over and over again that he lacks the maturity required to be on an NFL team, and now he is a free agent.

I will be very interested to see how long it takes for a team to give Young a second chance, and I will also be interested to see how Young handles himself. I have little doubt that some team out there will be willing to take a risk on him given his talent, but if he doesn't change his ways, he will be out of the league for good sooner rather than later.
