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.
    I didn't say it would be a bad aquisition, but knowing the kind of players Philbin wants, I just couldn't imagine Titus Young being one of them. I'm not sure Philbin would want a guy like that even if he were free. Its not the money, its the player.

    He has proven nothing and yet he cant shut up.

    That sounds like a perfect Jests player,

    See I have no problem with this either. It beats sniffing around UDFA's for a diamond in the rough, because that definitely hasn't worked. If the risk is minimal, I'd definitely be taking a look.

    Didnt he intionally mess up plays because he wasnt getting the ball? He is T.O without an 1/8 of the talent.

    Yes he did:

    "Young's implosion included acts of violence and insubordination that you don't often see, even in a rough-and-tumble industry. His primary and known offenses -- sucker punching safety Louis Delmas last spring and reportedly lining up in the wrong position intentionally last December -- are not just examples of immaturity. They are signs of a troubled soul who isn't equipped at this point in his life to function in the NFL's high-pressure world."

    .
    i think there were reports that he would intentionally not only line up in the wrong place but also intentionally run the wrong routes so he would be nearer to where the ball was going to be thrown because he wanted to get more catches

    Wasn't really directing towards you, just using your quote as a reference point. I also agree with the type of player Joe Philbin wants.

    The kid has been troubled since his high school days. I remember reading alot on him back in that draft because the Fins needs a speedy WR and he fit the bill about as good as any of them (we ended up with Clyde Gates). One thing stands out tho . . . he has hit low points in high school, college and the NFL . . . and he turned it around in high school and college, and maybe he turns it around here. I'm certainly not confident in that, but I just think if the risk is minimal I wouldn't mind giving him a shot to turn it around.

    I do agree that as fans, we are probably barking up the wrong tree knowing who is calling the shots . . . but I wouldn't be upset with a "Dolphins sign Young" announcement either.

    Instead of focusing on Titus Young, we should maybe be focusing on another Lion's player....there is a report by Detriot Lions beat writer Dave Birkett that says the Lions will release RG Stephen Peterman today. He started every game the last 3 years, ranked 14th by ProFootballFocus in 2012.

    It kind of makes me wonder how Ricky Williams and Brandon Marshall got away from us.
