Louis Delmas on Titus Young: 'That's my boy ... Me and him are like best friends'

Certainly, the Lions don't need any more problem children on their roster -- considering the high-profile offseason arrests of Nick Fairley and Mikel Leshoure -- and luckily for them, it appears safety Louis Delmas has forgiven receiver Titus Young for supposedly punching him in the face.

“That's my boy,” Delmas told the Detroit Free Press. “Me and him are like best friends now at the end of the day.”

Which is good news for the Lions, especially considering they gave Young a defacto suspension from early OTA workouts after he supposedly sucker-punched Delmas during last month. But Young tried to make amends by issuing this apology:

"My recent actions have not always been up to the standards the Lions expect or the standards that I expect from myself. I am truly sorry for those times when I didn't meet those standards. My absence from the practice facility and the OTAs last week was necessary for both myself and the team.

"The time away from the team afforded me the opportunity to reflect and come to the realization that by putting those incidents behind me I will be able to focus on becoming the best teammate and player that I can be."

Apparently, that's good enough for Delmas. His new BFF.
