ALLEN PARK, Mich. - Refusing to answer any questions about the incident that sparked his absence, Titus Young wants to move on.
Speaking for the first time since his alleged sucker-punch on teammate Louis Delmas, Young spoke about the future, and how his thoughts have changed.
"If you guys wanna talk about the past, then I can't answer anymore questions. But if you wanna talk about the future and how great our future as an organization is, than we can talk about that," he said with a grin Monday.
"Anytime you get time away from something, you get time to see what's important. Puts things in perspective."
Young said he believes time heals all wounds.
The second-year wide receiver earned the favor of his veteran teammates last week, when he took ownership for his actions. Nate Burleson spoke to those efforts on end a week ago.
"I felt it was important to get off my chest and get the burden off my heart, just seeing the guys uneasy. It just wasn't right."
Head Coach Jim Schwartz said Monday the team needs the off-field cohesiveness just as much as it does on-field togetherness. With the dust settled on the incident between Young and Delmas, the relationship, according to Young, is back to normal.
He cited examples today as proof.
"I'm fine with everyone. We was just joking in the training room. He just kicked my foot in the training room and I laughed at him. Just joking around, just brotherly love."
