Less than two weeks after acquiring his rights, the St. Louis Rams have released wide receiver Titus Young, according to a report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Young spent a handful of days in the Rams headquarters this week, interviewing with front office personnel and undergoing a series of medical tests. The organization decided to part ways before even seeing him work with the team in uniform on the field.
This news is the latest setback that dates back almost a year for Young, who unraveled during his second season with the Lions.
During the offseason, he sucker-punched teammate Louis Delmas and later undermined the authority of the coaching staff by purposely lining up incorrectly on the field during the waning moments of the Lions loss to Green Bay on November 18.
Young never played again for the Lions in 2012 and was released by the team on February 4. The Rams claimed his rights and appeared willing to work with him moving forward, but today's actions leave him jobless for the second time in 10 days.
