The Detroit Lions will reportedly cut wide receiver Titus Young, so where might the talented yet beleaguered young man land in 2013?

The NFL is full of teams lacking talented wide receivers.
The New York Jets, Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins immediately come to mind, and Lord knows, there are plenty of other teams in need of skilled receivers.
Young's time with Detroit was highlighted by multiple incidents of misbehavior, though.
Young was benched in Week 13 of the 2011 season after he committed a costly personal foul against the New Orleans Saints. Then he was suspended after he got into a fist fight with safety Louis Delmas last May. Finally, he was benched this past year after he allegedly lined up on the wrong spot and ran incorrect routes on purpose against the Green Bay Packers.
That was the last straw for the Lions, as Young didn't make it back on to the field again in 2012.
Young then seemingly helped Detroit make its mind up about keeping him after the season with a handful of antagonistic tweets, culminating with this:
Oh I'm not done, if y'all going to cut me let me go. I'm tired of the threats— Titus D Young Sr (@TitusDYoungSr) January 25, 2013
He now has his wish, so which teams would be willing to give him a second chance?
