Less than two weeks after joining the St. Louis Rams, wide receiver Titus Young is reportedly going to be released.
Well, that didn't take long. Less than two weeks after being claimed off waivers by the St. Louis Rams, wide receiver Titus Young is already set to be released again. The Lions released him back on Feb. 4, and the Rams claimed him a day later. Now, the Rams are planning to release Young, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Jim Thomas.
Interestingly enough, this news was first reported by Rob Parker of all people. According to Parker, Young "might not play football again," which sounds about right given that he is going to end up being released by two teams in just a couple weeks. I can't imagine another team out there will take a chance on him considering only the Rams claimed him in the first place.
The fact that Young managed to last all of 10 days in St. Louis says a lot about him. According to Thomas, Young was around the team this week for meetings and a physical. Evidently, the team's interactions with Young in that time led to the decision to release him.
Clearly, Young didn't learn anything from being released by the Lions, and the Rams must have felt that he wasn't worth the headache.
