Dom Raiola on Titus Young: ‘He wants to be an a**hole, let him be an a**hole’

The Detroit Lions brought second-year wide receiver Titus Young back to practice this week after a timeout for what was described as insubordination.

Young was quiet after practice today, saying he did not want to dwell on the past, according to reports out of Detroit.

But Lions center Dominic Raiola, an outspoken leader in the locker room, made it clear the players are not going to put up with anymore nonsense from Young, a second-round pick from a year ago who reportedly was blowing his assignments on the field during games.

We've moved on from him. He wants to be an a**hole, let him be an a**hole,” Raiola said, according to Chris McCosky of the Detroit News. “It's not my problem.

“What we can control is the guys who want to be here. And when you act like that, you don't want to be here. We've got good guys on offense. Don't be an a**hole and don't be a jerk.”

Sounds like Young is down to his final strike in the Lions locker room if he’s not already blown it with teammates. Here is a question worth pondering: When will the Lions players admit they’ve had enough with defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh?
