The Detroit Lions released wide receiver Titus Young on Monday, ending Young's two-year tenure with the team, reports Lions.com.

Young was twice suspended from the team during 2012 season, once for lining up in the wrong position in a November game against the Green Bay Packers and again for not taking advantage of the second chance the team gave him.

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.

Young then went on a serious of rants via social media, expressing his disgust with the team.

"Oh I'm not done, if y'all going to cut me let me go. I'm tired of the threats."

"Never have I ran the wrong route, just put my self where the ball was going."

"Like I said I never been selfish but if I'm not going to get the football I don't want to play anymore."

Young caught 33 passes for 383 yards with four touchdowns last season.
