Before the Lions released him early this year, wide receiver Titus Young took to Twitter on a couple of different occasions to complain about his role on the team and the fact that the Lions wouldn’t cut him loose to find work elsewhere.
Those were a few final straws that eventually did break the camel’s back in Detroit, leaving Young to spend a brief spell in St. Louis before the Rams cut him as well. Young’s now unemployed, which leaves him plenty of time to use Twitter. In something of a surprise given his past missives, he came up with a less divisive message to send to Lions fans early Tuesday morning.
“I apologize to the Detroit fans, Thank you, for the 2 years of Love and joy,” Young wrote, via the Detroit Free Press.
We have to give credit to the Detroit Free Press because Young decided to delete that tweet and every other tweet he’s ever sent shortly after sending out his reminiscence of love and joy that it is hard to imagine too many others in Detroit remember quite so fondly. Young’s two years in Detroit had less love and joy than punches to a teammate and conduct detrimental to the organization, but perhaps that’s why they say you only remember the good times.
There’s no word on why Young decided to switch gears away from his apologetic stance and even less on interest in NFL teams bringing him on board to vie for a job in 2013.
