02:41 PM ET 02.20 | Ex-Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young has cleared waivers and is now free to sign with any team that is willing to risk bringing him on board, according to NBC's Pro Football Talk. Young has shown talent but hasn't proven to be mature enough to play anywhere in the NFL for very long. Detroit drafted Young in 2011, and he promptly caught 48 balls for 604 yards as a rookie from Boise State. However, Young was suspended indefinitely after becoming a distraction in Detroit midway through last season and then was released following the final game.

Gee, I wonder why?

The guy is a punk and a thug, good riddance to bad garbage...

February 20, 2013  04:34 PM ET

Wow that's surprising! I thought he would have been snatched up in a minute. NOT!!

There's always the Arena league or Canada, if you don't make it there you could try car sales.

Some day down the road he'll wonder...."What was I thinking?"

That would presume he learns how to think.

A "thug?" Get a grip. Being insubordinate to a coach doesn't make you a thug. This is just the go-to word for closet racists.

He needs to be a NY Jet!

February 20, 2013  09:26 PM ET

wow ! no one picked him up off waivers (again) I am surprised!

And the race-card is flipped for no reason at all...

I posted something about this the other day, so sorry for the repeat, but it seems necessary here.

He ran a 4.8 40 while prepping for the draft. An intern read off his time, and Young charged him, threatening to **** him up. He was thrown off the field (literally, if memory serves). This is one example, I realize, but anyone who freaks and goes after someone just for reading a stopwatch is a thug. It has nothing to do with race.

Not a surprise. And when someone eventually picks him up, that won't be a surprise either.

February 21, 2013  08:34 AM ET

Was he like this in Boise State? Did he have problems before the Pros?

February 21, 2013  09:26 AM ET

He just needs to get his **** whipped by the girl kicker and maybe that will knock the chip off his shoulder.

Nope.....too rational of an explination. Add "thug" to the loooooong list of words that cannot be used by anyone of light-skinned persuasion without being deemed a "racist". (I fully expect to now be accused of being racist)

I am 1/64 Cherokee indian, so I am a minority and have been granted all honors and privelages of free speech that can be bestowed.

When he's flat broke (probably not a long wait) he may figure out how to shut up and do what the coach says.

During his second year at BSU, he was suspended from the team early in the year for conduct detrimental to the team. Supposedly it was a fight with another team member that led to the suspension. But after sitting that year, he appeared to "get it" and didn't seem to be a problem until he got to Detroit.
