The Detroit Lions have released troubled WR Titus Young. Young has had a butt-ton of disciplinary problems with the team and finally the Lions have decided to cut ties with the kid today. Young was drafted in the 2nd round of the 2011 draft out of Boise State. He will go through waivers and any team can put in a claim on him. If he clears waivers, he will be a free agent and available to sign anywhere.
Titus Young has talent, but he has been a bad apple. Some team will give him a shot at playing again and he will have to be on good behavior or he will find himself on the street again.
Wonder if the Chargers will take a chance on players like this with a new general manager and coach on board? The old regime would never take a chance on players with this type of character issues, but could the new regime take some chances?
The Chargers could use some help at receiver. Danario Alexander will likely be back, but he has had a history of injury problems. Malcom Floyd also has been an injury prone receiver. Vincent Brown is coming back from an injury and Robert Meachem was a ghost last season.
It wouldn’t hurt to take a chance on Titus Young to see if he can cut it in training camp and during the preseason. If he fails to keep disciplined, then you drop him to the curb again. I would take the chance. The goal this offseason is to get Philip Rivers as much help as possible, Young could be a piece that we could use.
What do you all think? You guys like having a team full of good characters or would you take the chance?
