Dominic Raiola blasts Titus Young, says Lions have 'moved on from him'

Cary Emondson-US PRESSWIRE

Lions center Dominic Raiola laid into wide receiver Titus Young on Friday, saying, among other things, that the team has "moved on from him" and "what we can control is the guys who want to be here."

Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young has been gone from the team since last week, as head coach Jim Schwartz sent him away before Thanksgiving. On Friday, center Dominic Raiola voiced his rather strong opinions on Young and his situation.

Chris McCosky of The Detroit News captured most of Raiola's thoughts on Twitter, beginning with the fieriest comments first, as Raiola said of Young, "We've moved on from him. He wants to be an asshole, let him be an asshole. It's not my problem."

Young also spoke to reporters on Friday, though he didn't say much of anything in the form of an apology or rationale for why he was asked to leave the team last week. His potential return to the Lions remains uncertain.

Raiola, via McCosky's Twitter feed, continued on Young, saying, "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."

In McCosky's third consecutive tweet, Raiola seemed to sum up the whole ordeal, from his point of view:
