Rams claim temperamental WR Titus Young off waivers

Wednesday February 6th, 2013

The Titans have claimed Titus Young a day after the Lions released the disgruntled wide receiver.

The Lions suspended Young twice during 2012 season, once for lining up in the wrong position in a November game against the Green Bay Packers and later for remaining a problem despite the second chance the team gave him. He also allegedly sucker-punched teammate Louis Delmas.

Young recently used Twitter to dare the Lions to play him more or let him go.

Rookie Kendall Wright led the Titans with 64 receptions, but averaged just 9.8 yards per catch, leaving the team looking to add big-play receiving threats to provide more vertical targets for quarterback Jake Locker.
