Titus Young is now free from the Detroit Lions after gaining his release yesterday. Young had gone back and forth with the Lions about his role and getting the ball more.
Now news has come out that Young had been doing some talking, and if you read into it correctly, maybe Young wanted to be free of Megatron, Calvin Johnson.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Young had recently boasted to his old high school coach E.C. Robinson that he indeed was better than Megatron. Yes ladies and gentleman, you read that correctly.
“He did tell me he thought he was just as good Megatron,” Robinson recalled late last month. “I said, ‘Titus, come on.’ I said, ‘Come on, man. Who you talking to?’ I said, ‘Come on, you’re as good as that guy? This guy is the real deal.’ And he really believes this. And he was sincere about it. ‘Ah man, I’m better than him.’ I said, ‘No you’re not. Be real man. Come on.’ So I don’t know, I’m hoping for the best for him.”
Let it be known that Robinson has tried to reach out to Young, but to no avail. Titus Young is a bit delusional. I agree we should all be confident in ourselves, but come on man.
