The Detroit Lions have waived disgruntled wide receiver Titus Young, the team announced Monday.
The Lions have had problems with Young's behavior and comments all season, and he was disciplined several times.
He refused to line up in the correct spot during a Thanksgiving Day game against the Packers, and last month he criticized the Lions organization on Twitter.
First, he threatened to never play football again, and he later directed comments toward the team:
"Oh I'm not done, if y'all going to cut me let me go. I'm tired of the threats," Young tweeted. "Never needed the money Give me a dollar and a ball bet I come back #HallofFame"
Young's 2013 base salary is scheduled to be $555,000, and it will be interesting to see whether any team picks him up.
Young, 23, had 33 catches for 383 yards and four touchdowns in 2012, which was his second NFL season after being drafted in the second round in 2011 out of Boise State. His career totals with the Lions include 81 receptions for 990 yards and 10 touchdowns.
