According to a Facebook post by Bill "Huge" Simonson, a well-known sports radio host in Michigan, the Detroit Lions are "cutting ties" with troubled wide receiver Titus Young.
Simonson cites Detroit Lions writer Tim Twentyman as the source of the news.
Young recently expressed his dissatisfaction with his role in Detroit via Twitter. Young, a former Boise State star, burst onto the NFL scene in 2011 with 48 catches, 607 receiving yards and six receiving touchdowns.
However, in 2012, Young's total production dipped to just 383 yards, 33 receptions and four touchdowns. At one time, Young's future in Detroit looked incredibly bright. But after his tirade on Twitter, the second-year pro seemingly wore out his welcome within the Lions organization.
Young Tweeted the following Jan. 25, a period of time when he was under heavy scrutiny.
