The Detroit Lions have placed WR diva, Titus Young Sr, on season ending IR. Young has been causing problems in the Lions’ locker room for weeks and the two clearly have no future together. SportSmasher saw Titus Young’s problems coming a mile a way when he added “Sr.” to the back of his jersey in a complete diva move. The comments on that article are classic. Lots of defenders at the time. Now… they are quiet.
Back to my point… the Lions seem to be abusing the IR spot in my opinion. They drafted and signed an idiot player. And now instead of having to drop him, they put him on IR to retain his rights in hopes of a draft day trade. Young’s absence from the field has more to do with his personality than his knee. This isn’t the intent of the IR. I can’t fault them… they are playing within the rules. But the NFL should look into policy/rule changes.
