The Rams were the only team to put in a claim for WR Titus Young.
Young, 23, is small in stature at 5-11, 174. Although Young played inside and outside for the Lions, those are normally the dimensions for a slot receiver.
In St. Louis, the slot receiver — when healthy — for the past several years has been Danny Amendola. So it’s fair to question how this move might affect Amendola, who’s scheduled for unrestricted free agency and is engaged in contract discussions with the Rams.
“I don’t think it affects Danny one bit,” Amendola’s agent, Erik Burkhardt, said Tuesday. “Titus Young isn’t anywhere in the same ZIP code as Danny as far as a player goes. I’m sure Young may disagree with that because he thinks he’s better than Calvin Johnson.”
