Lions release wide receiver Titus Young
The Detroit Lions have parted ways with troubled wide receiver Titus Young.
Young, a second-round draft pick in 2011, has been disciplined multiple times in the past 12 months. Most recently, Young was told to stay away from the team facility because he intentionally lined up wrong in a Week 14 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
Young tweeted in January that he preferred to be released if the Lions weren't going to include him in their future plans.Trade Bucket: Hidden Content

Its really a shame. Titus Young has the Tools and Talent to be a wide receiving force as the #2 to Megatron he obviously isnt the brightest guy to say "I need the ball" or "I demand attention" Burrleson is getting up there so he would be #2 Double coverage on Johnson. They could have gotten a 4th or 5th Rounder from somebody but the longer they waited the more he pouted i guess they decided they were not getting a good return on him. Someone will take his Attitude Cleveland seems ideal With there Young WRs. As a Lions fan (I know my user name suggest otherwise but i didn't know what to come up with so i said hey i like cam back to the matter at hand) So in other words I Belive Detroit was a great Opportunity for Young but his attitude and his Skills (or lack their of) will have him out of the league sooner than laterI WILL NOT GIFT!!!!!

This is good news, and bad news. It is good to hear that Titus Young is done as a Detroit Lions player. However, it is a shame that he could not make the same career turnaround that Vernon Davis did in San Francisco.

Well... as a HUGE Boise State fan, this whole ordeal has been massively frustrating. Titus is the most talented, athletic player we have ever had, and that includes Dougie Martin. He clearly has a screw loose up there, however, and all of his talent and skill may just go to waste.
Hopefully he will go to a team like the Steelers, Patriots, or Ravens, who clearly need WR help, but are also VERY solid organizations. Denver might even be a good fit, too. If he goes to another dysfunctional team, like the Jets, Raiders, or Browns, I see this only getting worse.
Owing SEVERAL 1/1's and other rare stuff, I am hoping he pulls it together for my own, selfish PC reasons, too!

The only question I have here is "what took so long?" Mayhew and Schwartz have no backbone.

i seriously doubt any team will give this guy a chance. after all the players the last several years that have been problems i doubt anybody will give this guy a real chance. maybe let him be on the practice squad and sign to the league minimum and make him prove his self. other than that he shot his self in the foot and his career is done.

Besides, Titus D. Young Sr. can't make the HOF and prove he's the best receiver on the universe by sitting at home
