The Detroit Lions released wide receiver Titus Young on Monday, ending Young's two-year tenure with the team, reports Lions.com.

Young was twice suspended from the team during 2012 season, once for lining up in the wrong position in a November game against the Green Bay Packers and again for not taking advantage of the second chance the team gave him.

Young's behavior and attitude last season put the franchise in a bad position – one that ultimately led to today's decision. It started last spring when Young allegedly punched teammate Louis Delmas which resulted in Young leaving the team for a short time.
