Forget his Twitter outbursts and his insubordination; now there is even more evidence that Titus Young is disconnected from reality.
Following his predictable release on Monday, E.C. Robinson, Young’s high school coach told The Detroit Free Press that he had a conversation with Young on Christmas where the former Boise State Bronco claimed to be better than his former teammate Calvin Johnson, who is widely recognized as the NFL’s top receiver.
“He did tell me he thought he was just as good Megatron,” Robinson told the Detroit Free Press. “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.”
Following his release, it was believed that the Dallas Cowboys may put in a waiver claim on Young, although those reports have been refuted by Bryan Broaddus of Cowboys.com.
