The Detroit Lions booted disgruntled wide receiver Titus Young on Monday, and they’re prepared to make another move Tuesday, according to the Free Press’ Dave Birkett:
Lions will release OG Stephen Peterman today, per a person familiar with the decision. Peterman started every game at RG the last 3 years
— Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) February 5, 2013
Peterman was the weakest link among Detroit’s starting offensive linemen in 2012, and the Lions apparently will waste no time in moving forward with a new plan at the right guard spot for 2013.
Just how bad was Peterman last season?
According to @davebirkett Lions to release Stephan Peterman today. Gave up joint most combined sacks, hits and hurries of any guard in 2012

The Lions could have a couple of intriguing options on their roster to replace Peterman in 2012. The first is Bill Nagy, whom the Lions claimed off waivers from Dallas last season; Nagy then spent the entire year on injured reserve. The other is Riley Reiff, who continues to improve and, if Detroit brings back Jeff Backus and Gosder Cherulis at tackle, may have won himself a spot in the lineup along the interior.

The St Louis Rams took a chance that no other team in the NFL was willing to, putting in a waiver claim on Titus Young.

The pat answer is this...
According to Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com, the Lions have released disgruntled wide receiver Titus Young.
Young’s behavior and attitude last season put the franchise in a bad position – one that ultimately led to today’s decision. It started last spring when Young allegedly punched teammate Louis Delmas, which resulted in Young leaving the team for a short time.
In a move which should come as little surprise, the Detroit Lions released 23-year old WR Titus Young this afternoon. Young possesses the athletic talent to play in the NFL, but his attitude has been a serious issue during his short time in the NFL.

It appears that a day after being released by the Detroit Lions, the St. Louis Rams have decided to take a chance with WR Titus Young.

Hopefully for all of us, this will be the last time this troubled guy is spoken of on It’s Always Sunny in Detroit.
But, with the way things seem to go, he’ll probably catch a game-winning touchdown...

Titus Young, the latest player to test the patience of an NFL team and exploit the dangers of having a young firecracker on your roster. He’s the poster child for the term “character risk.” Starting with his collegiate days at Boise State, Young has never been short of words…or actions for that matter. He was suspended for the majority of his...
Ladies and gentlemen, I have heard it all. According to Titus Young, the Lions cut the best wide receiver in the NFL yesterday. And no, Calvin Johnson was not given his walking papers.
You see, Titus Young thinks he’s better than Megatron. The guy that was sent home three times within a seven-month span after sucking-punching teammate Louis Delmas in practice, lining up incorrectly...
Dippy receiver of note, Titus Young, was released by the Lions on Monday after a year of starting fights with his teammates and lashing out at his coaches on Twitter. It just wouldn’t be fair that he would be cast off without saying one more dumb thing, so take it away, Titus:
E.C. Robinson, Young’s high school coach, said Young came to his house on Christmas and the two talked...
