Rams claim Titus Young off waivers one day after his release from Lions

(WXYZ) - Titus Young is getting a second chance.

One day after the Detroit Lions released the troubled wide receiver, the St. Louis Rams have claimed him off waivers.

Young was sent home from the Lions three times last year for disciplinary issues. In the offseason, he sucker-punched teammate Louis Delmas, and during the season, was sent home two times for behavior issues.

He was suspended for six games.

He will count for $900,000 against the salary cap this season, but the team saved over $200,000 in bonuses by cutting him.

Last year, the Rams drafted cornerback Janoris Jenkins, who came into the league with a long list of problems. The Lions passed on the 24-year old, who had four interceptions and four defensive touchdowns last season.
