Former Lions wide receiver Titus Young’s personal issues and arrest have been front page news for the past month now.  Young has been arrested three times in the past 15 days, and recently has family acknowledged young had some mental health issues. Current Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch says that he recently was on the same flight from Miami to Detroit with Young, and the two had an interesting and deep conversation according to Tulloch. Tulloch told The Detroit News that during their conversation, Young shared with him his mental disorder, and admitted that “he wants to get cured.” “He’s aware of the situation that he’s dealing with and he showed me a paper and we went over it and I looked over it, and I understand it,” Tulloch told the Detroit Free Press. “A lot of people laugh about it and ke-ke-ke about it, but it’s real. He has head issues, and the Titus Young when he came in as a rookie and the Titus Young now is two different people. “It’s kind of like when you look at him, he’s looking through you. It’s different. You can tell there’s something going on in his mind, in his head, and I hope that he can get help.” “He has a problem,” Tulloch said. “Ain’t no question about it. We had some long discussions and he showed me some things and I was like, ‘All right.’ The fact that before he didn’t realize it, now he realizes it. Young’s problems aren’t new, because he’s been getting into trouble since his early years at Boise State.  Young definitely needs help, now the question is will he seek it out?
