A bizarre story just keeps getting stranger. Detroit Lions WR Titus Young seems to believe he is the greatest receiver ever to play the game but his actions might keep the player from ever stepping on an NFL field ever again. Young had issues with the Lions this season, saying that he purposely sabotaged the Detroit offense by lining up out of position during games. He took to Twitter multiple times to make off the hook remarks and even proclaimed himself better than Lions receiver Calvin Johnson.
His behavior caused him to be released by Detroit and he hit the waiver wire. The only team that put in a waiver claim for the Boise State product was the St. Louis Rams. Now, just days after claiming Young off waivers, it appears that he may have been cut.
The website TheShadowleague.com is reporting this afternoon that Young has been cut.
The site speculates and claims sources tell them that Young’s NFL career might be done at this point. You think? You only get so many second chances and if you can’t hang with a team for more than 2 weeks in the offseason, you are certainly not going to hang during training camp and the regular season.
There has been no official word from the Rams organization at this point, but if this report is correct, his release would not surprise me in the least. When contacted, Young’s agent declined comment according to reports.Who cares what his 40 time is, this cat is likely done in the NFL if he has been released. Another total waste of talent by a player who just couldn’t keep his mouth shut and be a team player. Another career, down the drain.
Any other team that would roll the dice on Young at this point would be foolish.
UPDATE: Rams head coach Jeff Fisher admitted this afternoon in a press conference that the Rams have decided to “move on” from Young after spending time with him. I hope Yong enjoys playing in the arena league or the CFL next season. Another punk destined for jail.
