DETROIT (CBS Detroit) Lions coach Jim Schwartz stayed mum on what exactly Titus Young did to get kicked out of practice and kept out of games, but Young himself seemed to finally break the silence Tuesday.

It all started with a Twitter rant.

Young, who had been silent on the social media network for nearly two months, reemerged with a vengeance this week, Tweeting his feelings about the Lions.

“Like I said I never been selfish, but if I’m not going to get the football i don’t want to play anymore,” he wrote amid the tirade.

Teammates alluded to the idea Young drew the ire of Schwartz by refusing to line up the way called for in a play and stayed in a lane he chose to get the best exposure for himself.

But Young wrote this: “Never have I ran the wrong route [by accident], just put my self where the ball was going.”

He summed it up like this.

“I feel like Tupac sometimes,” Young wrote, referencing the world famous slain rapper.
