Young was cut first by the Lions and then by the Rams, and he has been arrested multiple times this offseason. Robinson says that he spoke with Young before Young went to jail last month, and that Young wasn’t even aware that he had been released by the Rams.
Robinson also said that when he last saw Young, Young’s behavior was so erratic that Robinson’s family grew concerned about him, and at one point Robinson’s daughter had to grab Young to keep him from wandering into traffic.
“He shouldn’t be out on the streets,” Robinson told the Associated Press. “The day he left my house, I was scared. I mean, you’ve got a loose cannon out there that could go off anytime.”
Young remains jailed and is awaiting a psychiatric evaluation. Like Robinson, we hope Young gets the help he needs.
