The Detroit Lions front office may not have reached their saturation point with second-year wide receiver Titus Young, but some of his teammates have. Young returned to practice earlier this week after serving punishment for his latest childish charade — intentionally lining up in the wrong spot on the field to express his frustration with the offense. Lions center Dominic Raiola sounds like he wishes Young just stayed home. “It’s not a distraction because we have moved on from him. If he wants to be a f—–g ass—-, let him be an ass—-,” Raiola told The Detroit News on Friday . “It’s not my problem. What we can control are the guys who want to be here. When you act like that, you don’t want to be here. What I want is people who want to be here, and I think everybody else wants the same thing. “If you don’t want to be here, just f—–g leave.” Young has acted like a child since the day he came into the NFL. Coaches have gotten into heated discussions on the sideline during games because of him. He has punched teammates and headbutted opponents. Yet, the Lions continue to hang onto him. The coaching staff has been open about the fact that rookie Ryan Broyles and newly-acquired Mike Thomas are going to see expanded roles, but why is Young even on the roster at this point? He’s proven time and time again that he’s not going to buy in. What is Jim Schwartz waiting for? Cut him loose. H/T Eye on Football Photo credit: Mike Carter-US PRESSWIRE
