Rams won’t comment on report Titus Young will be cut

The Rams are declining to comment on the odd report that surfaced this morning saying they would release receiver Titus Young today, just 10 days after they claimed him off waivers from the Lions.

PFT reached out to the Rams this morning when the talk of Young being released first surfaced, and the team told us that it has no comment. However, head coach Jeff Fisher is scheduled to appear at a press conference today to formally introduce Tim Walton as the team’s new defensive coordinator, and Fisher is expected to answer questions about Young at that press conference.

The story that Young would be cut began with, of all people, Rob Parker, the commentator who was fired by ESPN for making asinine comments about Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III being a “cornball brother.” Parker is now writing for a website called The Shadow League, and he reported there that Young would be cut and may never play football again. Parker isn’t known for breaking news, but he does live and work in Detroit, so he may have a connection with Young, who has played for the Lions for two years.

We’ll be keeping an eye on St. Louis for official word about Young’s future, or lack thereof, with the Rams.

    If this kid didn’t learn the first time then so be it, he’s an idiot.

    Titus Young is a cornball wide receiver.

    Potential suitors: Jets; Cowboys; Raiders…

    Titus Young reminds me of my shower this morning.

    We both pissed everything down the drain.

    I’m beginning to think he really stinks at being a person.

  7. ncs115 says: Feb 15, 2013 11:42 AM

    Wow, I can’t believe a brother that is down with the cause could be cut twice in 10 days. Right Rob? Idiot!

  8. larryboodry says: Feb 15, 2013 11:42 AM

    Now this is just too bizarre…I can’t imagine what Young could have done in just ten days to blow his second (and possibly final) chance.

  9. blackandbluedivision says: Feb 15, 2013 11:45 AM

    Let that be a lesson to you kids. It doesn’t matter how good your are. If your ego is better than your talent, you won’t get anywhere in this league.

  10. blackandbluedivision says: Feb 15, 2013 11:45 AM

    that should be “If your ego is bigger than your talent. “

  11. bbrophy1 says: Feb 15, 2013 11:46 AM

    This guy ran himself out of the league just life that? How do you piss off 2 teams enough within in 2 weeks to find yourself without a job after being a highly touted draft pick

  12. raiderufan says: Feb 15, 2013 11:47 AM

    That would be very odd…why wouldn’t they at least see him on the field first?

    I wouldn’t put it past Pure Blood Brother Parker to make this up just to make sure people will still notice him.

  13. tv426 says: Feb 15, 2013 11:48 AM

    Being that birds of a feather flock together I’d trust that Parker and Young are best of buds!

  14. andyreidisthegoat says: Feb 15, 2013 11:48 AM

    It’s Rob Parker. It could go in any direction. This could be totally fabricated. parker and young are both jokes, at this point.

  15. hosmachine says: Feb 15, 2013 11:51 AM

    Ha nothing but free time ahead Titus. Good for you now you can train around the clock to become better than Megatron, on Madden anyways. Rams don’t want you now thats pretty bad.

  16. onderin says: Feb 15, 2013 11:52 AM

    Lets see if he’s actually cut first…
    If he is, the reason will leak eventually.

  17. cosmicduster says: Feb 15, 2013 11:54 AM

    He’s totally better than Megatron.

  18. wewantmoretebowandfavrearticles says: Feb 15, 2013 11:56 AM

    I’m pretty sure this is a false report. No way a guy can get cut this fast unless it’s a scheme by Schwartz and his buddy Fisher to destroy Young’s career to teach him a lesson.

  19. nyyjetsknicks says: Feb 15, 2013 11:57 AM

    When your a better wr than Calvin Johnson, you really don’t need to play football.

  20. rhamrhoddy says: Feb 15, 2013 11:57 AM

    Accurate or not, that cornball reporter Rob Bradford just hit the free publicity jackpot.

  21. benroethlisberger7 says: Feb 15, 2013 11:58 AM

    You know your career is nearing its end when you are wearing a new uniform every week. Hope ya got a degree in something, Titus.

  22. hrmlss says: Feb 15, 2013 11:59 AM

    Young’s agent probably demanded they renegotiate his contract to Megatron money or trade him to a team that would.

  23. schmitty2 says: Feb 15, 2013 12:03 PM

    If anyone is qualified to speak about someone ruining their own career it’s Rob Parker

  24. bshaw408 says: Feb 15, 2013 12:08 PM

    Must have asked him to really play for a dollar

  25. rr2000k says: Feb 15, 2013 12:15 PM

    Can I Super Size that for you?

  26. gbmickey says: Feb 15, 2013 12:17 PM

    What’s with the Rams management? First you have Ryan and now this?

  27. greytchase says: Feb 15, 2013 12:19 PM

    Maybe Tim Walton had something to do with it. He was the secondary coach in Detroit few seasons. I’m sure he saw and heard the antics of Titus.

  28. ajb3313 says: Feb 15, 2013 12:20 PM

    The first comment that comes to mind is “hahahaha.”

  29. jaggedmark says: Feb 15, 2013 12:29 PM

    Why are the Rams letting someone better than Megatron go?

  30. bigks77 says: Feb 15, 2013 12:30 PM

    Um yeah, I’ll take the number 2 Titus with no cheese on it please!

  31. harrisonhits2 says: Feb 15, 2013 12:31 PM


    Cut before he ever got to off season workouts, mini-camps or ever touched a ball in a Rams uniform.

    Have to do something pretty screwed up for that to happen.

  32. jwreck says: Feb 15, 2013 12:37 PM

    I didn’t read through the comments section, but if someone already cracked a joke about Birds of a Feather, I’m gonna be pissed. C’mon tv426.

    It does make sense they would hang out though: Young and Griff are pretty much polar opposites. Parker fervently declared he would not associate with likeable, well-spoken, black male role models. Parker must get along great with Titus; who doesn’t even have a fiancee, much less a white one.

  33. mjkelly77 says: Feb 15, 2013 12:39 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.

  34. vikingsgohard says: Feb 15, 2013 12:53 PM

    He can’t get out his own dam way … Clueless!

  35. tyler4richardson says: Feb 15, 2013 12:55 PM

    But he’s better than Calvin Johnson. Why would any team release him?

  36. northfootball89 says: Feb 15, 2013 12:57 PM

    They’re releasing him because the Rams are about to break the bank by making a trade for percy harvin

  37. thelionsfan00 says: Feb 15, 2013 12:58 PM

    My hunch is he told them he wanted to play on the west coast.

    He is still a wack job though and will probably flame out before his career ever takes off.

  38. joetoronto says: Feb 15, 2013 1:00 PM

    And yet, some people here will wonder why.


  39. speckers says: Feb 15, 2013 1:05 PM

    I am 100% certain this guy ends up in jail.

  40. zsking says: Feb 15, 2013 1:10 PM

    Man I cant believe its been a whole week since our last titus young update!

  41. reprob8 says: Feb 15, 2013 1:28 PM

    hope that the next thing that i read about this young man is that he’s enrolled in college to finish his degree and that he’s seeking counseling for his apparent “personal issues”…and NOT that he’s been arrested, or worse.

  42. noring4youstill says: Feb 15, 2013 1:29 PM

    He’ll end up in New England.

  43. immafubared says: Feb 15, 2013 1:31 PM

    Well you can rule out drugs because the Rams would be required to report that and it would be all over the news so it has to do with personel.

    If I had to guess, I would guess he failed to show up for a meeting or a physical and didn’t call with an excuse -emergency of something, so the Rams said screw this!

  44. granadafan says: Feb 15, 2013 1:42 PM

    Titus Young is so awesome he demanded that he not only get thrown every pass, but also get to throw it also. He’s so fast he could catch his own thrown balls. He could also call his own plays!

  45. filthymcnasty1 says: Feb 15, 2013 1:51 PM

    The only thing funnier than this would be if Detroit puts in a waiver claim on him.

  46. spellingcops says: Feb 15, 2013 2:00 PM

    Judging by his stupidity, he has to be related to Vince.

  47. mkbane says: Feb 15, 2013 2:01 PM

    Teams should be all over this. It’s not every day a receiver better than Calvin Johnson becomes available.

  48. fievel03 says: Feb 15, 2013 2:41 PM

    I absolutely love, LOVE that you don’t dignify Parker’s new gig with a link. If Young does get cut, maybe he’ll suck it up and head north for a couple of years. Smartest thing he could be told to do. He could hit his peak with a new attitude, come back to the NFL, and produce…… or not. Either way best of luck to him (but not Parker).

  49. htown1035 says: Feb 15, 2013 3:12 PM

    Well Fisher just confirmed it. Sad, really…

  50. bartlettruss says: Feb 15, 2013 3:33 PM

    Wow. I’ve seen players cut in ten days before, but not without even working out. Maybe they found out more about him… Might never know. Unless Parker tells us of course, but then again if Parker tells us we still might not ever know…

  51. fengler2013 says: Feb 15, 2013 3:41 PM

    Young could never follow the rules at BSU, and was a poor team player. He was suspended more often than not, and for some critical games.
    Even if this isn’t true, I don’t see him lasting.

  52. commandercornpone says: Feb 15, 2013 3:47 PM

    still remember the priceless sight of him REACHING OVER A REF to hit a saint who trash-talked him…

    gee, titus, didya think people wouldnt see? like the ref?

    i would say he is a moron, but that would be a dire insult to mere morons the world over.
