St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) - The St. Louis Rams placed Titus Young on
waivers Friday, just 10 days after claiming the problematic wide receiver from
the Detroit Lions.
Young was waived by the Lions on Feb. 4 following a turbulent 2012 campaign
that ended on injured reserve in early December, though the team had declared
the former second-round pick a healthy inactive for two games prior to the
move after Young had an altercation with wide receivers coach Shawn Jefferson
on the sidelines during a Nov. 11 loss to Green Bay. Young also reportedly
purposely lined up in the incorrect spot on the field during that contest,
and was sent home from the next day's practice by head coach Jim Schwartz.
The Rams claimed Young the day after Detroit severed ties, but have already
chosen to move on.
Head coach Jeff Fisher did not discuss specifics about the move during a
Friday news conference, though he did indicate that health was not a factor in
the team's decision.
In 26 games over his two-year stint in Detroit, Young recorded 81 catches for
990 yards and 10 touchdowns.
