Titus Young was released by the Detroit Lions Monday, a move that was inevitable to many.
While the rest of the world was wrapped up in Super Bowl news, Lions wide receiver Titus Young was likely grunting and mumbling to himself about his lack of respect.
It turns out he isn’t going to get it any time soon – at least from the Lions – following news of his release on Monday afternoon.
Young has been in trouble with the Lions multiple times, and even went to as far as foiling games for the team during the regular season.
Most notably, Young intentionally lined up offside during a play in Week 14.
Since then, his relationship with the Lions has quickly deteriorated. Young took to his Twitter in the new year to sound off against the organization.
“Oh I’m not done, if y’all going to cut me let me go. I’m tired of the threats.”

After the news of Young’s release broke, the Lions official Twitter page (@DetroitLionsNFL) wasn’t shy about shedding a spotlight on the development.

Chances are, it won’t be long before Young finds work again in the NFL. He isn’t the first wide receiver to run his mouth, and there are certainly many teams that could use him. The question is exactly who wants to deal with Young and his antics.
When you try to think of the coaches who would tolerate their wide receivers intentionally ruining plays, not many come to mind. We’ll have to wait and see who takes the bait.
