We all are aware of the new locker room cancer that is Titus Young. He has gone on Twitter barrages, said he’s better than megatron and almost solidified any doubt that he is crazy. Well when the Detroit Lions unsurprisingly cut the young wide receiver the St. Louis Rams picked him up.

Then they released him 10 days later.

Well that certainly cements that this kid is a problem child and a detriment to any team who’d risk bring him in their locker room. Rams head coach Jeff Fisher however went on “The Fast Lane” on ESPN 101 in St Louis and clarified the situation.

And by clarifying we mean throwing Titus Young a bone and potentially saving his career by helping him get one more chance.

As reported by Sports Radio Interviews:

“We wanted to go into detail with the young player. So if you let him clear waivers then you’re competing with the rest of the clubs and he’s on the free-agent circus tour, if you will, and you’re doing a brief interview and so on and so forth. So we felt that by claiming him … we would have a lot more time to do that. And so we did so. We claimed him, we brought him in, we spent a great deal of time with him. … And at the end of the extended interview process we just felt that we were better off going on as an organization.”

Certainly makes sense from a logistical standpoint. Makes you wonder though if that were the case why more teams don’t practice this?
