Titus Young looks to have a bright future ahead of him in the NFL that is if he decides to continue playing football. Young, 23, caught 33 passes and four touchdowns in 10 games with the Lions this season, but the talented young receiver isn’t happy with the amount of balls he was thrown in 2012 and is even threatening to retire if things don’t change. Young took it to Twitter on Tuesday to express his frustration over the mere 56 passes that quarterback Matthew Stafford threw his way this season. Like I said I never been selfish but if I’m not going to get the football i don’t want to play anymore — Titus D Young Sr (@TitusDYoungSr) January 22, 2013 Aside from the target issues, the animated second-year receiver was also benched and then placed on injured reserve in December after he was accused of purposely lining up in the wrong position multiple times — a claim Young also took to Twitter to deny. Never have I ran the wrong route, just put my self where the ball was going — Titus D Young Sr (@TitusDYoungSr) January 22, 2013 Whatever the reality is behind Young’s antics, the Lions have to be concerned whether he actually fits into their long-term plans or is just a talented enigma. Also, maybe he needs to be reminded that he shares a field with arguably the best receiver in football — Calvin Johnson — and maybe that’s where his targets are going.
