Okay...so what's the deal with this guy? I've read that he has "off-field issues", but it doesn't really go into detail. He definitely has the talent and is still very young. What exactly is all of his beef about? I know that he's been into fights with teammates and he has apparently lined up in the wrong spot, which is heresay IMO...Idk. I know that if he just needs a change of scenery and a kick in the butt, then maybe we sign him and see how he does through training camp and preseason. His production is there. He just needs to get his act together.

Players like this worry me and I doubt the Dolphins take the chance. One of the things Philbin has done was build a team that has a solid locker room. His talent makes him interesting and he will get a chance by another team, but I think the fighting with teammates and his deliberate insubordination makes him a no go for the Phins.

His high school coach just came out and said that Titus legitimately thinks he's better then Calvin Johnson. Egos like that find themselves out of the league VERY quickly.

Actually, that's what I do for a living. I'm a shrink.

Beyond that, I don't think he's a fit. If Miami can't handle Brandon Marshall, who by all accounts was a model citizen in Miami, then they certainly don't seem capable of handling Young.

From a talent view he could help but he is a head case that I wouldn't want on this team.

Titus Young may very well have been the most self-entitled, immature player in the NFL this season. He produced, was in his 2nd year in the league, was showing promise, and still was a bad enough apple to get released by Detroit. It's not like he didn't produce, he's just a [inappropriate/removed].
