Draft Scout Titus Young News
02/21/13 - WR Titus Young was waived by the Rams just weeks after being claimed by the team off waivers from Detroit.
Young was cut by the Lions following a turbulent season in which he punched safety Louis Delmas during offseason workouts, purposely lined up in the wrong spot in a game against Green Bay when he tried to switch places with tight end Tony Scheffler because the play was designed to go to Scheffler. He had also gotten into an argument on the sideline with receivers coach Shawn Jefferson. That dispute led to an argument between Jefferson and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan.
02/07/13 - WR Titus Young, waived by the Lions Monday (Feb. 4), was claimed by the Rams the following day. Last season, the Rams took a risk by selecting cornerback Janoris Jenkins in the second round of the draft. Jenkins produced in his rookie year, although he was benched in a game against San Francisco for missing curfew.
Now, the Rams have taken another leap of faith by claiming the troubled Young. No other teams claimed Young, who was waived Monday following a turbulent season in which he punched safety Louis Delmas during offseason workouts, purposely lined up in the wrong spot in a game against Green Bay when he tried to switch places with tight end Tony Scheffler because the play was designed to go to Scheffler. He had also gotten into an argument on the sideline with receivers coach Shawn Jefferson. That dispute led to an argument between Jefferson and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan.
He was banished from the team for a week. After he returned, things didn't improve, and the Lions eventually placed him on injured reserve because of tendinitis in his knee. At that time, Lions coach Jim Schwartz famously said Young would have knee surgery "unless he doesn't show up for it." Schwartz also said, "When you have an issue or something that occurs and you do get a second chance, and you're welcomed back, you have to do everything to take advantage of that opportunity. I think in this case, that didn't happen."
Before Young was placed on injured reserve, center Dominic Raiola tyold the Detroit News, "We've moved on from him. He wants to be a (bleep), let him be a (bleep). It's not my problem. What we can control is the guys who want to be here. And when you act like that, you don't want to be here."
Ironically, Young was benched in the season opener against the Rams when he head-butted Jenkins.
Selected in the second round of the 2011 draft by the Lions, Young had 48 receptions for 607 yards and six touchdowns. This past season, he has 33 reception
12/31/12 - WR Titus Young, who was essentially suspended from the team with pay earlier this season for insubordination, is still in the plans for 2013. Schwartz said there was still an avenue and a process available for Young to get back and be part of the team next season.
12/12/12 - WR Titus Young is on injured reserve with a knee injury. Coach Jim Schwartz was asked Wednesday if Young has had surgery. "I'm not going to comment on that," he said.
12/02/12 - WR Titus Young was inactive Sunday and told to stay away from Ford Field. "He was told, by me, not to come to the stadium today," coach Jim Schwartz said. When asked why, Schwartz said, "Because we are going to concentrate on the 46 players that were active and who we thought were the best for our team today." Interestingly, every other inactive player was on the sideline Sunday, including receiver Nate Burleson, who is still on crutches recovering from a broken leg. "We're going to do what's best for the team and what's best for the team is to have a guy like Nate Burleson on the sideline," Schwartz said.
In other words, Schwartz didn't want Young to create a distraction. He was asked if Young would ever play again this season. "That's yet to be seen," Schwartz said. His absence became more problematic when rookie Ryan Broyles left with a right knee injury after the second possession of the game and did not return. The Lions were left with two receivers - Calvin Johnson and Mike Thomas. Tight end Tony Scheffler filled in as the No. 3 receiver.
