After rosters were unlocked following the Super Bowl, the Detroit Lions wasted little time in making some moves. On Monday, they released wide receiver Titus Young, and they followed that up by releasing offensive guard Stephen Peterman and defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch on Tuesday. Let's examine each move and what might be in store for the Lions next.
Unlike the other two moves, which were based on the salary cap and play last season, releasing Young all came down to his behavior. The Lions just could not continue to have Young on their team after his numerous missteps on and off the field. Let's review just how many chances he got as a member of the Lions before they finally said enough is enough:
Benched against New Orleans Saints in 2011 for unnecessary roughness penalty
Sent home for a week after allegedly sucker-punching Louis Delmas during an offseason workout
