Titus Young, the 2011 second-round draft pick who lasted less than two years with the Lions, has now lasted less than two weeks with the Rams.

Rams coach Jeff Fisher confirmed today that the Rams have waived Young, ten days after they picked him up off waivers from Detroit. Fisher declined to get into specifics, but he said that after spending a few days with Young at the team facilities, the Rams' coaching staff decided he wasn't a good fit.

"We felt Titus is better suited for another organization," Fisher said.

Reading between the lines in Fisher's comments, it sounds like the same attitude problems that plagued Young's career in Detroit cropped up again during his brief stay in St. Louis.

"We felt like by claiming Titus we would have the opportunity to spend a good deal of time with him," Fisher said. "We spent that time with him, we spent probably four or five days with him, and as an organization, at the end of the interview process, you might call it, we felt it was best to go in another direction."

Fisher described Young as "an outstanding young talent" and made clear that there were no injury or health issues, which pretty much leaves the off-field concerns as the only reason the Rams wouldn't want him.

Although he showed flashes of talent with the Lions, Young proved to be more trouble than he was worth. Penalties and talk that he wasn't working enough in practice plagued his rookie season, and in his second year with the team he stepped up his trouble-making by sucker-punching teammate Louis Delmas in practice, and by purposely lining up in the wrong spot on the field to protest his belief that the Lions were throwing too many passes to Calvin Johnson and not enough to Young.

The Rams were the only team to put in a waiver claim for Young, and now the Rams have decided they don't want him, either. At this point, the odds seem good that the 23-year-old Young has played his last NFL game.

23 and may never play again. Wow. Wonder how long we see stories about him borrowing $300k for a birthday party?

23, talented, in the freakin NFL, set for life. What a bonehead.
he's trying to be charles rogers jr
Hahahahahhaahaaha! What an idiot!

It blows my mind that there are real people that are this stupid. So full of himself that he is delusional. Better than Calvin Johnson, yet now he can't find a team willing to take him for more than 2 weeks?! HA!

Wake up Titus Young! Calvin Johnson if worth $15-20M a year to any team in the league. You aren't worth the time of day to any team in the league.

Good luck finding a new career. Your obviously too stupid to do anything but b***h and moan. Now tax payers will have to pay for your lazy ass while you spend the rest of your days on food stamps in a double-wide in Michigan. Pathetic.

This is pretty epic. Dude needs psychiatric help. Anti-social personality disorder with narcissistic tendencies.

On a side note: Lions drafting WRs... maybe not such a good idea. (Megatron don't count, he's a Decepticon.)
How you gonna get cut in less than 2 weeks without even a single practice? This guy is hopeless. Million dollar talent and a quarter penny brain.

Fisher said they they claimed him off waivers to spend an extended period of time with him and evaluate.

Looks like they agree with your evaluation.

My first indication that there's something wrong with the dude would have been that he keeps referring to himself as "Titus Young Sr", despite having no kids.

That and him repeatedly getting into his fights with his own teammates shows he's not playing with a full deck.
my best friend goes to boise state and he said everyone on campus hated titus young and austin pettis. they were legit dbags and thought they were gods to everyone

Yep. He's got some variety of personality disorder. I'm still thinking psychopathic narcissist. Maybe borderline....

Teams should start hiring shrinks with football knowledge in the scouting department.

I think the 49ers should submit a waiver claim and put his locker between Pat and Bow, not to straighten him out, just to give them a head start on murdering fools.
