The only reason I ask is because he didnt have these issues his rookie year. Something that we wont ever be privy to happened between his rookie year and this past season. Most players (even the ridiculously immature ones) dont go off the deep end like that.

Torrey, Jacoby, and Boldin are worth four Titus Youngs each.
I see Rice and Webb helping young players
I would not touch this dude with a ten foot pole. He is not so talented that its worth the risk of tainting the water and frankly I would rather see Thompson get the playing time and not have the risk of the headaches Young could bring.

We don't even need him.
We basically already have a WR of his type in Deonte Thompson who couldn't get on the field because we also have Torrey, Boldin and Jacoby, with Doss getting into the mix.
And Deonte doesn't come with such baggage. At all.
Id rather have David Reed back than Young personally. Cheaper, hard worker, and similar skillset (although unproven) without the headaches. Im not sure what his role would even be here?
I actually wanted us to draft Young in 2011.
I do NOT want us to sign him (for even the league minimum) in 2013.
At the bare minimum, you are NOT a professional if you do what he did.
To be fair we don't actually have good route runners except Pitta and Rice. Torrey is getting better but his routes still aren't fantastic. A lot of that might have been Cam though

On the offense, this is now Flacco and Rice's team to lead. They may not be vocal, but the offense seems close knit. I think they could bring a trouble player in and keep him in line.
All that being said, I would not spend too much time going after Titus Young. I don't think he would be a good fit.
Hell. No. Dude is selfish and uncoachable and will probably be out of the league in a few seasons.
Detroit's GM must have been high on crack when they took Titus Young over Torrey Smith.
I was high on him out of the draft. Now, hell no.
Rams claimed him
