Rams make some sense, reunite with Pettis and non-B.S. head coach and perhaps some security if Amendola leaves as a FA.

Cinci likely.

Don't want him here though, needs his head examined.

Ugh, no way.


This is a championship caliber team, he's not a championship caliber player (his head is not in it).

Concern is that he didn't get open consistently despite playing with Megatron......

Not worried about attitude - no real risk in money he needs to succeed and shutup to get the big contract. Our locker room is strong enough that they can school him up / shut him up

When I think of Titus Young, all I can think of is Mike Singletary's "I want winners/I would rather play with 10 guys" speech.

Pass!

Tempting... Not exactly hoping for it at this point but if Pete/JS are willing to make the move I'm willing to trust them

PC only has a few rules. One of them is "protect the team". Not sure how Titus could have protected himself more and the team less...

He's 5'11", the Hawks have plenty of slot guys. Pass and it's a pretty easy call.

I wouldn't mind if they took a look at him to see where his head is at and if he would be committed to the program.

Let him come in and compete, i do not think he will make the team and as for the moment he is not a player i want, but we lose nothing letting him compete, i think he is headed for Canada personally.

Hell no.

The guy isn't going to help the Hawks, if he even made it. If the Hawks are going to get a WR with any experience there are names with a lot less trouble tied to them. The Lions CUT the guy, he cried about not getting balls and was in the doghouse of a coach who has Suh on his roster. That has trouble written all over it.

The guy's main gripe was not getting the ball enough on a team that threw over 700 times!!!!! Only 8 other teams threw over 600 times...Seahawks barely threw over 400 times. With a team that already doesn't pass much and a QB that likes to spread it around, you guys honestly think he'll be happy with that? I don't think so.

Detroit as a organization, and city isn't a place I would take their word for it on any player. People tend to have more issues when the organization is a head case throughout history as well. He didn't have these issues at Boise, so it seems Detroit could just as likely be the problem. If he comes cheap, I would take him without a doubt.

Such a well thought out, insightful comment. Did Titus sleep with your wife/girlfriend?

Titus Young seems like a headcase but our coaching staff has turned a few headcases into team players since they've been here, and I think his talent level is high enough that you have to, at the very least consider bringing him in.

Not really the type of receiver I was hoping for and he's a problem. Still, might be worth taking a look Pete has proven he won't tolerate crap and he can just be dropped if it's an issue.




You are 1000000000000000000000% correct. That guy had it made on a hugely passing team and he created his own problems. I don't want that virus anywhere near the Seahawks.

Young's recent decisions cause me to look the other way.

I say, don't bother.

Let him be some other team's new headache.

Young is not a #1 receiver. Hes not better then Rice. Why would we add another #2 receiver? We need a #1 plain and simple. We dont need more #2's.

Wallace or Draft. Thats the options unless someone else enters free agency.

If he clears waivers, bring him in for pre-season. Either he proves that he's better than all the crazy talk and drama he's become known for or he's simply food for Sherm and BB. Either way we win.

I feel like the people that are in the "what the heck, give him a shot" camp haven't fully looked into this guy. He's beyond the typical kind-of-difficult player, he's an absolute nightmare. Not only has he done all the things he's accused of, but he's not apologetic at all and is still running his mouth on twitter almost daily. It's one thing if you have a player who's had issues and trying to turn things around, Titus is not that guy. I don't want this guy anywhere NEAR this team, absolutely hell no.

Please refer to "White, LenDale" for a case study on how this team handles divas who refuse to buy in. I have exactly ZERO concern of this guy coming in and poisioning our locker room. I'd say it's more likely that our locker room reforms him.

Either that or he's food for Sherm and BB, so either way we win.

seriously though, I can picture him trying his little diva act in our locker room, having the room beat the crap out of him and throwing him out the back door of the VMAC. ZERO concerns.......

I still think the way the lions mismanage personnel is partially to blame for the way things fell apart with this guy. That's not an "Aw poor Young! He just needs heeeeelp!" remark from a bleeding heart. But these guys are young kids who've been given a lot of money and put on a big stage. If managed poorly these guys completely fall apart. Luckily it takes a lot of earned respect and proven ability to be on the staff of a team managing players in the NFL, they don't just hand those jobs out. If not, I'm sure we'd see so many more cases similar to this where these guys are out of control.

I happen to think the Lions just do a bad job of managing these guys. Young isn't the only case whatsoever on the lion's roster who's had issues. Look at last offseason, it seems like there were number of guys on their roster who acted out. Jim Schwartz claims to have a 'zero tolerance' policy, then goes right out and defends Suh whenever his complete disregard for character shows through. Inconsistency and mismanagement is no way to handle these guys.

I have questions about his usefulness to the seahawks becuase of 1.) his size - we don't need another baldwin/tate type body on the team and if we did we'd keep butler unless Young came in and was amazing and 2.) as someone said he's not a #1 guy.

But I'm also not against bringing him in for a look just because he has character issues. Sometimes guys need a change of scenery to establish a new perspective. And sometimes they will squander that chance, in which case you cut bait and move on, but you risk very little just taking a look.

Guess it's moot now. If anyone can take a guy and either get him to act right, or have no problem dropping him like a bad habit it's Jeff Fisher.

Per @jthom1, the Rams have claimed ex-Lions WR Titus Young off waivers. I'm told they're the only club that put in a claim on him.

Knew it, this is a very savvy type of move for the Rams. Young + Pettis back together might alleviate some of Young's troubles and this is insurance if they lose Amendola.

Too bad he did not clear waivers, even worse that he went to Rams.

I hope this thread is still around when he is playing us the next few years. The rams just got an extra second rounder for free as far as I am concerned.

Excellent news . . . for the Seahawks. From what I read, this guy's problems go beyond just needing a change of scenery. There's a reason 31 NFL teams took a pass on this guy. Here's hoping the Rams come to regret tying up a roster spot with this problem child.

If Pete was willing to give T.O. a shot, I think he'd give this kid a chance. Players know PC is a no nonsense type of coach. He doesn't give warnings and second chances (at least to players already on the team), you'll simply come back after practice to find your locker cleaned out and one-way airfare back to your hometown.
