Titus Young was a New Year's Day-sized headache for the Detroit Lions, but pure ability keeps the troubled wide receiver employed for the time being.
The deadline to make a waiver claim on Young was Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET.
This is a low risk/high reward move by Rams coach Jeff Fisher, who hopes to tap into Young's considerable potential. The Rams averaged just 18.7 points this season, ranking them 25th in the league. The team might be looking to reboot the position with Danny Amendola, Brandon Gibson and Steve Smith all unrestricted free agents.
If not, Young will find himself back on the street very quickly.
