Titus Young Continues To Set Records…Off The Field

titus-youngDetroit fans have a new Triple Crown winner to celebrate and he doesn’t go by the name of Miguel Cabrera. Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young has had a rough week, to say the least. The former 2nd round draft pick in 2011 hit the trifecta after being arrested three times in the past week, making his chances of a return to the NFL about as slim as Tayshaun Prince’s forearm. As if this off the field drama wasn’t enough, his father’s claim that Young suffers from a brain disorder added yet another element to the always entertaining saga of a talented idiot.

His first incident occurred on May 5th, when Young was pulled over for making an illegal left turn in his black Mustang. He was cited for suspicion of driving under the influence. After the car was impounded, he decided to get it back himself, which prompted his second arrest in a matter of hours. Who does he think he is, Memphis Raines?

And how did Young complete the sacred trifecta that Pacman Jones, Chris Henry, and other NFL greats have failed to achieve? Last Friday night, he was charged with burglary, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest after breaking into a home in San Clemente, California. And just like that, history was made.

After antics like these, could Young possibly land a gig with another NFL team? He might never live up to the lofty expectations he had as a 2nd round pick, but his rookie season did show promise when he caught 48 passes for 607 yards and six touchdowns. And he’s only 23 years old. His arrests will without a doubt hold him back, and one has to wonder if Young’s dad is telling the truth here.

After antics like these, could Young possibly land a gig with another NFL team? Would you trust him in your fantasy football team?  He might never live up to the lofty expectations he had as a 2nd round pick, but his rookie season did show promise when he caught 48 passes for 607 yards and six touchdowns. And he’s only 23 years old. His arrests will without a doubt hold him back, and one has to wonder if Young’s dad is telling the truth here.

He first showed some questionable behavior when he sabotaged the Lions passing offense in Week 14 because he was frustrated with his lack of touches. Since being released in February, he has received some interest, but no one has taken a chance on him up to this point. Cincinnati Bengals, anyone?
