Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young has been charged with four felonies and seven misdemeanors stemming from three separate arrests in less than a week in May.

Young had been dealing with mental health issues leading up to the arrests and had to be evaluated by a psychiatrist while in jail.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder early in his NFL career. According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Marshall said Wednesday that he reached out to Young this spring and laments he was unable to do more to help him before his troubles magnified.

“I wish I was able to get to him earlier,” Marshall said. “When we were in a process of him coming down to Florida it was right there where things could potentially get worse and unfortunately they got worse.”

Young was arrested on suspicion of DUI and then arrested again for trying to steal his own car back from police custody. Days later broke into a house and was charged with burglary and assault.

    Good intentions by Marshall, but sadly some people can’t be saved from themselves.

    Marshall plays for the Bears. Young played for the Lions. It’s not a wonder one succeeded and the other a complete failure.

    Brandon Marshall should have done more to help Darrent Williams.

    Better that he’s off the streets. His end had tragic written all over it.

    Help him more?!? Like to steal his car back?!?

    Marshall should shut it, get/keep his house in order, and catch the damn ball…

    Young had more resources than 99% of American citizens and he chose his path…
