    Titus Young released

    Im sure this was probably posted before but how much of a problem case do you have to be cut when coming off a near 1000 yard season and on a rookie contract. Him saying he was better than calvin johnson is not a way to endear yourself to your teammates

    Patriots will sign that guy right away. They always sign the headcases. Randy Moss, Aqib Talib, etc.

    i dont know. He still has to clear waivers. Either way, hes extremely mouthy, he doesnt have a problem trying to sabatoge his own team(intentionally lining up in the wrong spot), gets in fights and has an extremely poor attitude. i wouldnt want him

    In all seriousness . . . what is the risk (contract numbers?) if we signed him off of waivers. Is it minimal enough to cut him if he ends up being too much of a problem?

    He fits the exact description skill wise of the type of WR we need to be adding to this team w/o putting $10 million a year in his hands. Obviously don't want a troublemaker but I wouldn't mind gambling on one if it means cutting ties easily if he goes south.

    In terms of character, I'd consider this guy worse than Chad Johnson, but not as bad as Marshall - so I'd say its unlikely that he fits the character makeup desired by Philbin. Philbin wouldnt even give Braylon Edwards a chance, so I dont see Titus Young getting one.

    cheap and skilled? why not? it's not like we're picking up marshall who was expensive and skilled.

    I guess but a troublemaker like him and Miami don't mix well. Most immature players can't stay out of trouble once they come to South Beach.

    But Titus is still on a rookie deal, so what are we talking . . . 500K a year? Chances in the NFL are getting slimmer and slimmer and a guy like Titus could really rebrand himself by shaping up for a coach like Joe Philbin. I dunno, he wants to be a star and he has that opportunity to be that guy down here . . . worse comes to worse we cut him loose (depending on the ramifications). Hey I don't know the whole story with him, only what I've read, and it certainly isn't good, but I certainly wouldn't be opposed to take a look.

    He has never sniffed a near 1000 yard season.

    about 600 yards in year one and 300 yards in year two.

    He has proven nothing and yet he cant shut up.

    That sounds like a perfect Jests player,
    Once Dmac is drafted a Dmac Jersey will spontaneously materialize in the closet of each and every Dolfan...

    ...and not that replica crap either...

    I would pick him up but on a short leash. Let him go through OTAs and such to gauge his attitude. If he isn't a model citizen, cut him. If he walks the straight and narrow we get a lot for a little.
