Jeff Fisher: Titus Young is better suited for another organization

Titus Young AP

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.

    Okay. Y’all need to apologize to Rob “Cornball” Parker, lol.

    All those posters who went in on Rob Parker need to give him credit where credit is due.

  7. canetic says: Feb 15, 2013 3:19 PM

    That sounds like what my ex girlfriend told me when she dumped me. Fisher should have also said, “It’s not him, it’s me.”

  8. agelardi says: Feb 15, 2013 3:19 PM

    Wow, how s**tty of a person do you have to be to not last 2 weeks with a new team… in the OFFSEASON?!

  9. ajb3313 says: Feb 15, 2013 3:19 PM

    I make it a point not to type “LOL” for a wide range of reasons. But, well… LOL.

  10. blackandbluedivision says: Feb 15, 2013 3:20 PM

    So is it safe to say that aside from Calvin Johnson Detroit is where WR’s go to die? I mean they’ve struck out on almost every WR they’ve drafted.

  19. northfootball89 says: Feb 15, 2013 3:22 PM

    Cant believe they just released him…. I mean he was better than megatron

  20. blackandbluedivision says: Feb 15, 2013 3:22 PM

    That has to be a record. He spent 4 or 5 days with the team and they got rid of him. Wow. I think even T.O. is impressed.

    If neither Detroit nor a Fisher-coached team wants any part of your attitude, that should be a rude awakening for Mr. Young.

  26. brainboner1 says: Feb 15, 2013 3:25 PM

    probally best suited as a cook in county prison. anyone who changes their name to show Young Sr. is mentally ill

  31. ravenmuscle says: Feb 15, 2013 3:27 PM

    Sounds like a perfect fit for the Steelers.

    That “we own you guy” should jump all over this this gem.

    Go see Charles Rogers, biggest difference is how much smaller your paycheck happened to be. New Rae Carruth anyone?

  33. raiderufan says: Feb 15, 2013 3:28 PM

    I was one of the people saying this was an attention grab by Parker…my bad….

    More details are needed on this….I just can’t fathom what a man has to do to get cut from a team with such a massive need at your position! His attitude was so poor that they didn’t even care to see him in a practice? Not even one practice?

    I wanna have a convo with this guy. It must be a great lesson in lunacy.

  34. specialkgun says: Feb 15, 2013 3:28 PM

    He’d be a great fit for The Mean Machine

    Yes he is….the Montreal Aulouettes.

  39. bartlettruss says: Feb 15, 2013 3:36 PM

    I don’t know why anyone thinks this guy could actually hold a job at McDonald’s. You tell him to cook cheeseburgers and he’ll line up at french fries…

  40. mjkelly77 says: Feb 15, 2013 3:36 PM

    I was disappointd when Titus Young was claimed by the Rams, who acted like a cheap hooker on her hands and knees, going down for dollars. If you let players with bad attitudes like Young suffer the consequences of their actions, it will be better for the NFL. And better for every team in the NFL.

  41. pacific123ocean says: Feb 15, 2013 3:37 PM

    I think Titus has a mental illness. Maybe with the right medication, he can be productive.

  42. texaned80 says: Feb 15, 2013 3:37 PM

    This kid clearly came up with everyone kissing his a** all the time. GET IT THOUGH YOUR THICK SKULL TY!!
    Much like your carrer those days are OVER!!

  43. mjkelly77 says: Feb 15, 2013 3:39 PM

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

    What? Isn’t he on the cover of the official Detroit Lions wall calendar?

  48. PriorKnowledge says: Feb 15, 2013 3:43 PM

    Hey, not fair comparing Young to T.O. Owens was always a hard worker and never loafed. Owens may have attitude problems, but no one ever accused him of not practicing and playing hard.

  49. jameswestphal says: Feb 15, 2013 3:44 PM

    Another organization…perhaps Burger King?

  50. rcali says: Feb 15, 2013 3:49 PM

    Seems like a perfect fit for the Jets. Metonio Holmes and Titus Young on the same team. That’s a combo we can only hope for.

    Wait… Some commenters want us to give Rob Parker credit for being the first person in the media to report this… because he was the only one in the media who had a connection with Titus Young?

  53. 808ninerfan says: Feb 15, 2013 3:51 PM

    In the words of duck dynasty ” Oh he GONE”

  54. John A. says: Feb 15, 2013 3:54 PM

    Think about this: NFL players are only paid during the 17 weeks of the regular season. So Young got fired before he even cashed a check from the Rams.

    It reminds me of the movie ‘Friday’, where Ice Cube’s character gets fired on his day off. Same idea: Young got fired before he even showed up to do his actual job (play in a regular season game).

    That takes real talent. Not a talent you actually want or can get paid to do, but a talent nevertheless.

  55. granadafan says: Feb 15, 2013 3:55 PM

    Maybe the NFL should have Titus speak at the rookie symposium warning them check your ego at the door and not be the biggest diva on the planet.

  56. chawk12thman says: Feb 15, 2013 3:55 PM

    A few weeks or month unemployed may help him realize that perhaps he really won’t play in NFL if he doesn’t change. Maturity comes with age so lets see if this move by Fisher makes TY age quickly.

    conner87 says: Feb 15, 2013 3:17 PM

    Yeah better suited for the CFL
    ________
    Better suited for Pros vs. Joes. Since he won’t be a “Pro” anymore, he could be that really obnoxious “Joe” that rubs everybody the wrong way.

    I don’t watch a lot of reality TV, but I can guarantee you that the more obnoxious characters don’t actually behave like that in real life: out-of-control behavior boosts ratings, so they’re paid to act that way.

    And I totally understand the appeal of normal people acting like an outlandish, uncivilized, bipolar knuckleheads for a fat paycheck. What I can’t understand is why an incredibly talented athlete would act like an outlandish, uncivilized, bipolar knucklehead in order to lose his steady stream of fat paychecks.

  60. John A. says: Feb 15, 2013 4:02 PM

    Funny you should talk about age and maturity: his actual name is Titus Young, Sr.

    He’s 23 and has a kid he named after himself. When you think of guys who are called ‘senior’, you often think that they are mature and all that. Not with TY.

    The other thing is ego: what guy *that* young names his kid after himself who doesn’t think the world of himself already? A guy like TY, apparently.

  61. 1phd says: Feb 15, 2013 4:02 PM

    I’m willing to bet some team eventually takes him with the attitude they can fix him.

  62. albinorhino49 says: Feb 15, 2013 4:02 PM

    Some might think he might only have a future in the fast food business. But I doubt that, you still need a sense of “team work” to work those jobs. As a fryer he would push the drive through person down and piss in the special sause. This dude can’t even wash dishes. Not much hope for him until he gets an attitude adjustment.

    He’ll get another shot but may need a ‘little’ time away from the game for some forced perspective on his value to a team

  68. quicktaker says: Feb 15, 2013 4:10 PM

    Positives: He is keeping it real, not a sell out, and definitely not a cornball brother.

    “…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.

    I think the Lions felt that the on-field BS led to his dismissal.

  94. keepingitrealdumb says: Feb 15, 2013 5:18 PM

    should not insult T.O. by comparing TY to him .. TO _NEVER_ sabotaged the team by purposely lining up incorrectly .. that is just dumb.

    complain all you want about not getting the ball .. but to purposely ignore the gameplan and line up wherever you want just to go ‘intercept’ the ball???

    he did say that .. he said he was going to where the ball is going to be .. to me that is an offensive interception .. HAHAHHA.

  95. jprcox says: Feb 15, 2013 5:20 PM

    What if I told you that the most slightly above mediocre receiver ever to play the game would have only one season as an overrated fantasy option? And what if I told you that he would walk away, not from a life-threatening injury or a devastating personal tragedy, but because he was a complete d1ckhead?

    He had overcome a privileged upbringing and the challenges of playing opposite the best receiver in the NFL rise to rise to the very middle of the pack and become “the most pretty good that never was”.

    This is an ignorant statement. There’s nothing wrong with working at McDonalds. It’s only the most successful restaurant chain ever in the history of the world. It’s a major corporation and probably chock full of executives making more money than you right now. Generations of kids have learned something about responsibility by working their first job at McDonalds and there’s no need to denigrate that.

    This loser from the Lions is not going to get any job, he’s going straight on welfare, you’re going to pay for him. Enjoy that.

    Now he can join the ranks of the entitled. I told you that I am good and that should be enough coach.

    You’re not welcome in Canada. We will take nice pot heads like Ricky, but we won’t take you.

    When this kid played for ND I thought he was an awesome Receiver with the potential to be one of the best. I was a little bummed that Detroit was the team that landed him, but I still checked up on him every now and then to see how he was progressing. Man, what a disappointment. All that potential and he burns every bridge he crosses. You figured after Detroit that this kid would straighten up. I guess he is not worried about his future. That or he is just plain dumb.

    Is it safe to say, Fisher saw too much Vince in Titus over those 10 days. Probably almost gave Coach Jeff a heart attack.

    And Titus; When you show up for work in St Louis with a handle like TY; Well you really are on the 3rd strike. Get a clue dude.

    Titus Young is a hoodlum in a uniform… oh wait, without a uniform now! Go back to Detroit loser, I’m sure they’ll let you sweep the floors at hardcore pawn anyday!

    And props to the Rams for doing due diligence. Ya gotta kick the tires before ya buy.

    Way to blow an opportunity to make millions upon millions of dollars while playing in the National Football League.

    I absolutely loathe you for crapping all over your opportunity.

    Daddy used to say “Ya’ can’t fix stupid”.

  125. mackcarrington says: Feb 15, 2013 11:43 PM

    Yes, please give it a rest with the McDonalds and fast food references. I see this guy more as a 99 Cent Store or 7-11 type. Then of course there are always the self-serve laundromats that need somebody to wipe the machines down and sweep the floors.

    someone will pick him up this offseason, speed is to valuable a commodity in the NFL. off the top of my head a young Randy Moss comes to mind, Michael Westbrook, T.O. Andre Rison. trust me he’ll be in someone’s training camp. Raider Nation? Belichikland? Miami? Jacksonville? you’ll see

    “…better suited for another organization”

    may be the best line I’ve ever heard in the NFL!

    It seriously makes
    “It’s not you…it’s me”
    seem sincere and genuine by comparison. :)

    Kudos Fisher (which I never thought I’d say!)

    Who’s Titus Young?

  129. skrappie32 says: Feb 18, 2013 11:44 AM

    I hope he spent all his money on a big house that after the next couple of years he can’t even afford to pay the Tax’s on.

    who wants to bet 2yrs from now is name pops up in an article for abuse?

    Being a Lions fan, I’ll offer up a few things that weren’t mentioned in the article or incorrectly stated in the comments above. First off, it wasn’t just that he lined up in the wrong spot. He lined up in the wrong spot on many goal-line plays and committed a number of bone-headed penalties to boot. At least one of them directly affected the outcome of a close game, if not more. The Lions staff looked at the tape of the 11/18 game against Green Bay and came to a conclusion that he was sabotaging plays. Some of the coaches had suspected it all along. (Before that, I would assume, some had wondered if he was just really unintelligent, as his usual reply was probably “I’m sorry, didn’t know, won’t happen again.”). Before then, his attitude hadn’t just started to cause a rift among him and at least one of the coaches, but the coaches and other coaches, some of whom hadn’t yet came to the same conclusion. I’m sure that once the team asked the players to look at the tape, they also realized that he’d been intentionally botching plays. Mid-week (after the GB game) a number of players who had been in his corner voiced their thoughts in obvious displeasure. Also, the only two people he’d had altercations or arguments with with were receivers coach, Shawn Jefferson and current Lion, Louis Delmas. I’m not sure that he even ever had an argument with Schwartz, who was probably more concerned with larger matters. TY went to Boise State and played alongside fellow Boise alumnus Kellen Moore who was drafted by the Lions last off-season. He’s 5’11, thus not a top endzone target, nor would he ever be. He did have talent somewhat akin to Steve Smith of the Panthers when Smith came out of Utah as a rookie. TY was really upset that the Lions drafted Ryan Broyles with an early pick last year, and that may have been the start of his slide towards self-destruction. In conclusion, on behalf of all of us lowly Lions fans, Young Mr. Young Sr., you can suck it.
