One person’s trash is another’s treasure, but the St. Louis Rams may need a dump truck if they're not right. According to Jason LaCanfora of CBSSports.com, freshly released receiver Titus Young was claimed off waivers by the Rams today. The receiver starved Rams needed a playmaker, but Young does more than make plays, he wrecks teams. In 2012, Young tried to start a mutiny against position coach Shawn Jefferson, trying to sabotage the team. Young was suspended for the remainder of the season, and then tweeted his rage via the internet. As recently as a day ago, Young stated he was better than Lions’ record breaking receiver Calvin Johnson, truly a crazy thing to say. Young was unhappy in Detroit, but his behavior is beyond concerning, obviously the Rams feel the risk-reward was to great not to take a chance on the unpredictable talent. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
