The Rams’ low-risk waiver claim of wide receiver Titus Young isn’t the kind of move that impacts a team’s overall plans.
Specifically, it shouldn’t change the way they view negotiations with pending free agent wideout Danny Amendola, at least according to Amendola’s agent.
“I don’t think it affects Danny one bit,” agent Erik Burkhardt told Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “Titus Young isn’t anywhere in the same ZIP code as Danny as far as a player goes.
“I’m sure Young may disagree with that because he thinks he’s better than Calvin Johnson.”
Burkhardt should be careful about putting his client in harm’s way, because Young has already shown himself willing to punch a teammate.
So maybe if the Rams re-sign Amendola, he’ll be careful to tell Young that was the agent scorching him, and not reflective of his own thoughts.
