Detroit Lions To Cut Titus Young

The frustration regarding the Detroit Lions’ relationship with Titus Young appears to be coming to a swift conclusion now that the Super Bowl is over and team rosters are no longer frozen.

The Lions plan to cut ties with tumultuous WR Titus Young today, according to a team source.

February 4, 2013

Young was supposed to be the compliment to Calvin Johnson on the other side of the field while Nate Burleson and Ryan Broyles worked from the slot. His personal implosion puts the Lions in a position where they will once again need to address the wide receiver position during the offseason. Especially considering Burleson and Broyles are recovering from season-ending injuries.

The writing was on the wall for Young when he intentionally lined up incorrectly in the home game against the Green Bay Packers because he was unhappy with his role in the offense. He was subsequently kept for the Detroit Lions training facility and placed on injured reserve. It is likely the Lions would have attempted to trade Young rather than releasing him outright but Young submarined that plan as well with a series of ill-advised tweets.

Young. Talented. Troublemaker.

Sounds like a perfect fit for the Jets. Why the hell did they not offer a 7th rounder for this f#ck???

Look at Tempest. Now look at the difference between best and worst in blocking. Seems like a vaild way to choose WRs.

He's as big a scumbag as there is in the NFL. If you can't get along with Jim Schwartz, the ultimate players coach, you can't get along with anyone.

If Braylon was included in this calculation, they'd have to change to a different shape.

Fantastic that we'll get him as a FA -- I was afraid we might have to give up Holmes to make it happen. Plus, you've to love any kid in his 20's who carries the "Sr." tag. Pure class.

My god. I cannot stand this. This chart and the absolutely nonsensical charts like it make me want to scream while strangling a monkey nude in the middle of a public library. They try to do the impossible and the chart and stats sheep gobble it up. There is no validity to these supposed "metrics". They are the sh*ttiest of all bullsh*t arguments. It's crap like this that makes the jets line the 3rd best in the league. And the blind will just go, "hmm. I see. This chart, it goes against everything I've witnessed and all the opinions I've derived by actually observing, but it is a chart. And there are these metrics things to consider. Well, hell! This means we're awesome! Lets draft another DE!"

You mean Calvin Johnson isn't better than Nate Burleson and T.J. Graham?

I don't think strangling a monkey while nude is as much fun as it sounds.

Monkey's get pissed when you strangle them I think

Honestly speaking, we might as well get him if we can. He'd come cheap and he's pretty talented.

Only most monkeys. I find the macaque strain to be far more docile during strangulation than say, the chimpanzee or the lemur.

sure, johnsons better. And apparently they all block exactly the same. Hines Ward is somewhere rolling over in his grave right now. And he's not even dead yet. Not yet.

Dude, I was only joking and you had to bring up that chop blocking little scumbag. Thanks. Well, if he's in his grave already, okay.

These posts are nonsensical. And I say this with all due respect, as you're one of my favorites.

1. Yes, the chart indicates that these WR's are about equal at blocking. That's because most WR's really ARE about equal at blocking, because that isn't their job. Only rarely do you need a WR to make a key block, and I imagine its a rare occasion when teams make a real effort to test of a WR's blocking skills.

2. No validity to the metrics? Looks like those are right on. Burleson and Young grade out to below average receivers, Megatron and Andre are off the charts.

3. Show me the chart that says we have a top 3 offensive line, then we'll talk. Our line is about average at run blocking and pretty strong at pass-blocking these days, but we're not top 3.

4. Sure, why not draft a DE? The 2 elements every championship contender has these days are 1) Franchise QB, and 2) Pass-rush. If we can't fix the QB situation in the 2013 draft (likely seeing as this QB class is less than inspiring) I'd be in full support of bringing in another pass-rusher. It'll sure as hell make the potential loss of Revis sting much less.
