Titus Young had problems in Detroit, so it was no surprise to see the team let him go at the end of the season. What happened next – is a just another part of a sad story.
The St Louis Rams were the only team to claim Young after he was waived – but now, they are already letting him go. Young had been at Rams Park just a couple of days this week — meeting team coaches and officials, taking a physical, etc.
It seems that the Rams had seen enough – and decided it just wasn’t worth it, which is interesting since financially Young was low risk only being owed $555,000, plus a roster bonus of $185,000 at the start of training camp.
Below are some of the reasons Detroit decided to get rid of Young in the first place:
He sucker-punched teammate Louis Delmas during volunteer workouts.
He had a meltdown in a Nov. 18 game versus Green Bay, purposely lining up in the wrong spot in an effort to get the ball thrown to him. This spilled over into a sideline argument between Lions wide receiver coach Shawn Jefferson and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan, the former Rams coach.
And you can’t forget when he asked to be released via his Twitter account.
Young is only 23 years old – if he could get his head straight – who knows what he could do?
