ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Titus Young got his wish.

The Detroit Lions released the wide receiver today after two seasons with the club. Young played in 26 games and started 17 of them. He made 81 receptions for 990 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Young was drafted by the Lions in the second round (44th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft after four years at Boise State.

He was suspended by the Lions and sent home on three different occasions in 2012 including once during off-season workouts. Young had recently voiced his displeasure with his situation on twitter and seemed to ask the Lions to release him from his contract.
