Allen Park, MI (Sports Network) - The Detroit Lions officially released
troublesome wide receiver Titus Young on Monday, ending his two-year stint
with the club.
Young did not play in the Lions' final six regular season games as a result of
causing problems with the team's coaching staff.
A day after getting into an altercation with wide receivers coach Shawn
Jefferson in a Nov. 11 contest against the Packers, the former 2011 second-
round pick was sent home from practice by head coach Jim Schwartz.
He was then held out of Detroit's next two contests before being shelfed for
good when the team placed him on the injured reserve list.
The 23-year-old out of Boise State was coming off a stellar rookie campaign in
2011, finishing with 48 receptions for 607 yards and six touchdowns. However,
the Lions didn't deem his production worthy of his attitude.
In 10 games in 2012, Young made 33 catches for 383 yards and four touchdowns.
