DETROIT Titus Young has gone on another Twitter rant, and this time, he was talking about asking to be? cut.
Young, the troubled Lions wide receiver out of Boise State, took to the Internet on Friday to send out another weird series of tweets.
After a few overnight posts thanking former Lions receivers coach Shawn Jefferson with whom he had a public blowup during a November loss to the Green Bay Packers and his parents, Young tweeted around 7 a.m. Friday: Oh Im not done, if yall going to cut me let me go. Im tired of the threats.
Then he tweeted: Kut.
Then: Never needed the money Give me a dollar and a ball bet I come back #HallofFame.
Young then got into it with fans getting on him on Twitter. A sampling of Youngs tweets to specific Twitter users:
You suck u prolly never touched a ball
Im not a diva I live It
shut up Get your facts straight
Coach Jim Schwartz said he wasnt concerned with an odd series of tweets from Young earlier this week, including one when he said he needed to get the football more or hed walk away from the game.
We, obviously, still got some ground to cover there, Schwartz said Wednesday at the Senior Bowl. Like I said, every offensive player wants the football, and theres good ways to go about that, and theres others.
Young was sent home from the Lions three times in a seven-month span and finished this season on injured reserve. The Lions have left the door open for his return, but that seems unlikely.
Few teams in the league likely would go near Young after repeated bouts of destructive behavior such as sucker-punching teammate Louis Delmas during spring workouts last year and lining up in the wrong spot on the field against the Packers.
The Lions already have paid all the guaranteed money on Youngs rookie contract, and General Manager Martin Mayhew said this month hell make a decision about Youngs future before the draft.
CHIEFS ADD FORMER BSU RECEIVER
Wide receiver Tyler Shoemaker has signed with Kansas City, the team announced Friday. Shoemaker, a Mountain View High graduate, led Boise State with 16.0 yards per catch and set a school record with 16 touchdown catches during the 2011 season.
