                     === Lions cut problematic WR Young ===
 
 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 in 2012 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 shelved for
 the  season when the  team placed him on the injured reserve list. Young ended
 the campaign with 33 catches for 383 yards and four touchdowns.
 
 The  23-year-old out of  Boise State was coming off a stellar rookie season in
 2011,  finishing with 48 receptions for 607 yards and six touchdowns. However,
 the Lions didn't deem his production worthy of his attitude.
