Disgruntled wide receiver Titus Young has turned to Twitter again to express his feelings about the Detroit Lions.
Earlier this week, Young used social media to say he would retire unless the Lions put the ball in his hands more often.
On Friday, Young continued to complain.
“Oh I’m not done, if y’all going to cut me let me go. I’m tired of the threats,” Young tweeted. “'Never needed the money Give me a dollar and a ball bet I come back HallofFame.“
The second-year pro finished the 2012 season with 33 catches for 383 yards and four touchdowns and had two carries for 16 yards. In 2011, Young had 48 catches for 607 yards and six touchdowns.
Lions coach Jim Schwartz responded this week by saying it’s not a good idea to voice your concerns about the team in a public forum.
”We obviously still got some ground to cover there,“ Schwartz said.
