Finally! However, now the Lions need to draft a WR.
Tim Twentyman reports the Detroit Lions officially cut ties with Titus Young after a short - and tumultuous - two-year relationship

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
That Broyles pickup looks even better. Can only hope his surgery and rehab is going smoothly.
Patterson is a stud, and fits the mold of a premier slot receiver. I just hope it's not DRob.

Good for the Lay Downs and Titus.
Please don't draft a wide receiver in the first five rounds!
I think with the release of Young, it is inevitable.
That is a damn shame when we have so many other needs: Corner, safety, defensive end, LB, Center, Guard
great move, im sure there are tons of other WR's in the draft with character issues and injuries that will fit right in with the Lions team

don't know the salary cap situation, but boldin may be free from baltimore. megatron on one side with boldin on the other.
An OL, RB and a WR are all very possible in this draft. Guven they way this team performed in the redzone it is not a terrible option. In all honesty Braylon edwards would be a pretty good FA pick up.
We'll be fine. We don't need to draft another WR.
We will have Burleson and Broyles coming back next season to help Calvin.
We'll also have some capable options in terms of receiving:
- Devin Thomas
- Brandon Pettigrew
- Tony Scheffler
- Will Heller
- Brian Robiske
- Kris Durham (Highly underrated)
Agree, WR isn't the biggest problem IF Burleson & Broyles come back healthy. And if we get anything from Thomas, Robinskie or Dunham as the 4th WR, this becomes a position of strength very quickly.
BTW, does this mean we can please bring back Shawn Jefferson?
Bryoles MIGHT be back by Week 5 next year and will be far from 100%. Burleson is months away from being ready to practise and is reaching a pretty old age. Durham is trash.
Josh Boyce TCU a 6-7th round projection. Would like him if available.
A man's gotta eat!
What have you seen from Braylon Edwards in the past 2 years that would make you think he is a good fit to any team?
Say what? He was sick during the end of the season.
Give him the offseason of taking reps beyond the practice squad. If he improves his route running, he has a chance to be the #2 receiver behind Calvin. He's got the physical tool set at 6'5" 217 lbs and great hands.
Kris Durham 6'5 217 pounds big physical receiver with 4.4 speed to match it. Averaged over 20 yards a catch for Georgia last season. Finished his career with 1109 receiving yards

I would MUCH rather draft:
If the defense can improve in depth, we're a team to be reckoned with.
We had ELEVEN...ELEVEN games decided by just 10 points or less.
I'd love to see the Lions sign Greg Jennings. Don't see how they could afford him, though.
Lmao... MOST games are within 10 points...
3rd round. Cobi Hamilton.
Denard Robisnon--A seventh round pick with second round potential--just ask Mel Kiper!
