Titus Young To Rams; Chiefs Pass


The Kansas City Chiefs could use some extra help at the receiver position but it appears as though new GM John Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid did not feel former Detroit Lions wideout Titus Young was worth the gamble.

The Lions released Young yesterday, just two seasons after drafting him in the top half of the second round. Young has had on and off the field troubles in Detroit. From fighting with teammates, Twitter rants and allegedly lining up in the wrong spot on purpose during a game against the Green Bay Packers, the Lions decided they’d be better off without Young than with him.

Young has loads of talent, so it was almost a certainty that some team would roll the dice and claim Young off of waivers.

And that team was the St. Louis Rams.

The Chiefs could have had Young if they had wanted him. KC, as the worst team in the NFL, holds the #1 waiver priority. That means that any released player that has to pass through waivers can be claimed by the Chiefs before any other NFL team gets a crack at him. The Rams were 16th in line, meaning that the Chiefs, Jaguars, Raiders, Eagles, Browns, Cardinals, Bills, Jets, Titans, Chargers, Dolphins, Bucs, Panthers and Saints all said no to Young.

Former Raiders owner Al Davis must be rolling over in his grave.

    I think that if he had cleared waivers we would have signed him

      Now, let’s see. So the Chiefs had first shot at Young, and, along with 16 other teams, passed. Good non-move. So, if he clears waivers from the entire league, we should reverse our previous decision, and sign this loser? And just why would the Chiefs have done that?

      • Jack Thomas

        Sign him at league minimum. if u sign him off waivers u owe him for the remainder of his previous contract

  • chiefridgy

    Sounds like he was a cancer and no one needs that on their team.

  • Jack Thomas

    Yea but at league minimum it would be hard for me too pass it up

  • Stacy D. Smith

    He’s a headcase, but he’s very talented. The Rams just got better. They may also have cancer now though.

    • Jack Thomas

      cancer is also curable

      • calciomoti

        This just in…the Rams sign Thomas Jones…cancer cured.

        • Jack Thomas

          Thomas Jones will choke the cancer to death

      • Stacy D. Smith

        Young’s not good enough that we should take the hit in the lockerroom.

  • ArrowFan

    I would rather not anyone who reportedly lines up wrong on purpose is not needed on our team.
