Detroit Lions WR Titus Young finally issued apologized for his “recent actions” that wound up forcing the team to remove him their offseason program.
“My recent actions have not always been up to the standards the Lions expect or the standards that I expect from myself,” Young said, via DetroitLions.com. “My absence from the practice facility and the OTAs last week was necessary for both myself and the team.”
Young added that, “I will be able to focus on becoming the best teammate and player that I can be.”
Shortly after Young released his statement, Tim Twentyman tweeted that he rejoined the team for their Tuesday OTA practice.
It’s worth mentioning that Young was absent from the team’s OTAs on Monday and no explanation has been given for why he wasn’t with the team.
According to Richardson’s sources, Young “allegedly punched Delmas when he was not looking.”
Young figured to be in a good position to work his way into the team’s No. 2 receiver spot, but this, paired with the addition of second-round pick Ryan Broyles suggests that he’ll have to turn things around at some point during the offseason to ensure that he’ll have a decent role in the team’s offense.
