Titus Young having a great time at Lions’ minicamp


Lions receiver Titus Young was sent away from Organized Team Activities for sucker punching teammate Louis Delmas last month, but now that Young is back in the team’s good graces, he’s making the most of his opportunity.

According to Lions coach Jim Schwartz, Young has done everything asked of him and more.

“He’s had a good run since he’s been back with the team,” Schwartz said, via Anwar S. Richardson of MLive.com. “He’s made big plays in just about every practice. He’s worked hard, he’s been a good teammate, and he’s probably looked the best that I’ve ever seen him look in this couple of weeks span. We just need to keep him on that track, because he’s been outstanding the last couple weeks.”

While Schwartz is crediting Young, Young is crediting a higher power for the strong minicamp he’s had.

“First and foremost, I believe it’s because of God,” Young said. “God is continuing to provide. There’s nothing different. God has always been there and been my provider on the football field, but I feel like he’s just working in me even more on the football field, and he’s brought things in my life to put things into perspective about the gift he’s given me.”

Young also said that teammate Calvin Johnson has been instrumental in his improvement as a receiver.

“I’ve just been following after this guy right here,” Young said while pointing at Johnson. “Just stealing all the knowledge I can.”

With God and Megatron on his side, Young can’t go wrong.

  1. The kid really started to show his potential late last year and make the most out of the single coverage he was getting courtesy of Calvin.

    With Broyles coming in to man the slot and learn under Burleson…. Well, I guess it sucks to be an NFCN defense this year.

  2. Titus gives the Lions tremendous flexibility because he can play out wide. With TY on one side and CJ on the other, Lions can really cause havoc in the middle of the field with Burleson/Scheffler/and Broyles (hopefully). Throw Pettigrew into the mix, who despite his drops is a pretty reliable target, and Stafford has some dangerous weapons to work with regardless of how the opposing D besides to play Calvin.

    Couldn’t be more anxious for the season. Love me some summer, but bring on September!

  3. Young was the same way in college. Scary fast, good moves, knows how to locate the ball, but every so often just loses his head and does something stupid. If he has 1100 yards this season and slaps a zebra in late December for no apparent reason, don’t be surprised.

  4. Kinda funny to think just a few years ago we had cj and….? Now were loaded with talent at wr! Gonna be a fun year.
