Broyles update, ironically posted same day right before young news...
Its been a little more than two months since Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles tore the ACL in his right knee, but his rehab is already picking up steam.
@paulapasche: Only #Lions still on roster from 2011 draft class - Nick Fairley and Mikel Leshoure. WR @TitusDYoungSr (2nd round - 44th overall) cut today
To be fair, they only took 5 players that draft.
Still a shitty job though.

Lions could have had Torrey Smith. Now Smith is a Super Bowl champ...
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
I am really torn about this move. Obviously Titus Young is incredibly stupid, but he had a lot of potential with a low cap hit relative to his potential. I would have liked to see a reverse hold out type of thing happen, but Young being released might be best for both parties. I just would like to save the draft pick if possible. ( plus if he did get humbled and turned things around he would be a quality WR in the future)
I heard a former player on ESPN (Golic? Can't remember) a few weeks back say the Lions should wait until the very final cut of camp to drop him - put him through hell and then kick him to the curb.
That of course implies he would actually show up for camp.
The agent for one of his new teammates is already taking shots at him. This should be a fun camp.
The Rams’ low-risk waiver claim of wide receiver Titus Young isn’t the kind of move that impacts a team’s overall plans.
Specifically, it shouldn’t change the way they view negotiations with pending free agent wideout Danny Amendola, at least according to Amendola’s agent.
“I don’t think it affects Danny one bit,” agent Erik Burkhardt told Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. “Titus Young isn’t anywhere in the same ZIP code as Danny as far as a player goes.
“I’m sure Young may disagree with that because he thinks he’s better than Calvin Johnson.”

Thank you, Denicos.
Deserves a bump for the previous post on Amendola
I don;t think the Rams keep him. I think they will sit and have a talk with and see he is freaking insane and move on
Yep. Was a low-cost move to pick up and evaluate talent and their ability to harness it; that doesn't mean he makes it out of training camp once he tries to deck Cortland Finnegan for being "too rough."
either that or him and Janoris Jenkins have one hell of a party

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand
Mayhew's "Child, please" response to why they didn't trade Young:
Some fans have wondered why the Detroit Lions didn't hang onto troubled receiver Titus Young and try to get something for him via trade instead of just releasing him, which they did Monday.
"He didn't really have any trade value," Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said today. "I didn't talk to anybody, I didn't call 32 GMs and try to get a seventh or anything like that. It's my job to know sort of what his value is, and he didn't have any trade value."
GM Martin Mayhew says his decision to cut Titus Young was best for the team
So basically, "I didn't actually look into it, but I'm pretty sure he didn't have any trade value."
Well, he's right that it's his job to know what a player's trade value is, because he's the guy making offers to other GM's for their players, and making FA offers. His ability to accurately evaluate talent will make him or break him.
Should he have called around? Note he says he "didn't call 32 GM's" -- that doesn't mean he didn't make a few calls, just that he didn't call every GM for every franchise in the league.
If he called 5 teams and they all laughed in his face he could probably get the picture.
Remind yourself. Nobody built like you, you design yourself.
this is why Mayhew is an idiot, and another reason why he should be relieved of his duties as GM of the Lions. of course on the surface Young has little to no trade value, but Mayhew and the Lions arent the only dumb people in the NFL. if he doesnt call and ask the other stupid teams in the league like the Browns for example, how will he ever know if he could get a pick back for Young? I have to believe there would be some team willing to give Lions a CONDITIONAL draft pick for young.... but if you dont ask you will never know. this is why the lions are garbage and will be garbage until the fords leave and some new competent upper management are put into place. you just have to feel for the lions fans that love the team so much no matter how much they suck on the field, they deserve to have competent people running their beloved football team.

No team but the Rams even put in a waiver claim. There was no trade value there.
Ugh, do not want on the Rams

I wouldn't worry, friend. He won't make it long.
Told you not to worry:
The Rams were the only team to claim him. Fisher said that by claiming Young, the Rams would “have his undivided attention.”
But it took only a few days to figure out that Young was a no-go in St. Louis. In brief encounters with Young during the week at Rams Park several team employees said that Young seemed fine. But others said he didn’t seem “quite there” mentally.
I kinda feel sorry for the dude, actually. He's not wired right. Hope his family gets him the help he needs.
After a quick look, Rams decide to part ways with Titus Young.
"In a piece of news that will surprise exactly no one, no one claimed troubled wide receiver Titus Young off waivers yesterday according to multiple reports.
"Actually, troubled is the wrong adjective to use in connection with Young, because it implies that there might be fault created by someone other than the subject of that sentence."

I sincerely hope he does whatever he needs to do to get his head on straight, for Young Jr.'s sake.
