    Not necessarily just those that could be a benefit to the Patriots.

    The Lions waste no time in cutting WR Titus Young, disgruntled 2011 2nd round pick (#44). 5'11", 4.53 40 time.

    Lions waste no time in parting ways with Titus Young | ProFootballTalk

    Young was suspended for most of his sophomore season at Boise State after a fight with a teammate. Additionally, Young was passed upon by many teams during the NFL draft due to widely being considered a character risk. In May 2012, the Detroit Lions sent Young home after he sucker-punched Louis Delmas. In November 2012, the Detroit Lions again sent Young home and did not play him in the annual Thanksgiving day game due to conduct detrimental to the team. According to Lions coaches, Young purposefully lined up in the wrong position twice and got into a verbal confrontation with receivers coach Shawn Jefferson.[3][4] On December 5, 2012, after keeping Young out of the previous game and away from the team facility, the Lions placed Young on Injured Reserve, ending his eligibility to play for the rest of the 2012 season. To express his frustration, Young tweeted about not wanting to play anymore if he does not get the ball.[5]

    Sounds like a GREAT FIT for the J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets! :rocker:

    Titus Young ran a 4.43 at one point.

    I'm not sure where you got your numbers from as they obviously vary, but I went to NFL draft scout.

    As soon as you google "Titus Young 40 yd dash time" 4.43 seconds comes up in multiple websites, although to your defense he did run as low as a 4.55 at one point during multiple runs...I don't know the general protocol as to whether or not they tend to tail off, but it seems like he does have some decent speed.

    The Titus Young cut was expected. The blood bath in the Jets' organization that will come within the next week or two will be expected. I am waiting for the surprises.

    Looking into the discrepancy, he ran an official 4.53 at the combine but unofficial 4.43. Ran a 4.4 at his pro-day.

    Trust me, ignore any stats or speed that Titus Young has put up. The guy is a complete idiot. The Lions lost both Burleson and eventually Broyles this year. Instead of stepping up into the number two role the idiot just complained until the Lions got sick of it.

    The bengals have been looking for someone to complement BJGE. I wonder if they put in a waiver claim on him.

    They'd be smart to do it. The kid's just a 5th round pick, so the money's low. The two "prior incidents" that got brought up by Florio are nothing of substance (DWLS that got straightened out and a trespass for violating a [highlight]self-imposed[/highlight] casino banning.

    If he can play now that he's gotten some NFL time under his belt, he'll be a steal. If he sucks, or he acts up again, you're just cutting a minimum, or near-minimum, salary.

    When will Rainey get on the field for us if we signed him. Ridley's our primary runner. Bolden seems like he might be his backup. Vereen is ready to take that 3rd down back from Woodhead. Oh, we have Demps to back-up Vereen and return kicks.

    Titus Young is over rated and an all around Douche bag but all it costs to bring him in is a waiver claim. It is not like the Patriots avoid troubled players.

    This is a position of need, for $600K you upgrade the outside WR position and if it doesn't work out, cut his ass. Hell even if an upgrade becomes available before the season starts, cut his ass. Very low risk move, kinda like a discount insurance policy.

    I hear that.

    If anyone can get him to settle down though, it may be J.Fisher.

    Many here wondered if Janoris Jenkins was off of the NEP board altogether, and Fisher and the Rams turned him into something to keep an eye on as he had a decent year.

    Now you have J.Jenkins, C.Finnegan and T.Young all on the same team. I'm curious to see how that works out, but it seems as though many players end up respecting Fisher.

    $4.25MM for a coverage linebacker might be a bit steep.

    That said, good player. Not sure why the Giants did this.

    Vanden Bosch has really tailed off the past season or two, and has a cap hit of over 10 million for 2013.

    The other 2 may be possibilities.

    Dues you are exactly right. We could use this guy but do you think he will want to be a starter. What type of money do you think he would be looking for?
