The tragic saga of NFL wide receiver Titus Young seems to take on a depressing new turn each day. From his on-field meltdowns to his numerous arrests and word that he’s suffering from a mental disorder, Titus Young is a guy you pity rather than hate. For his family and friends though, that pity is laced with fear and agony as each day that passes is filled with unanswered questions about Young’s wellbeing.
Young’s former high school head coach E.C. Robinson spoke with the Associated Press and painted a heartbreaking picture of a young man lost in his own mind. Robinson told the AP that a few months after he started to notice a decline in Young’s mental health, his daughter had to pull Young back from wandering into oncoming traffic in front of their house. Robinson also said that Young was unaware of the fact he had been cut by the Rams days after the transaction had already taken place.
“He shouldn’t be out on the streets,” Robinson said, via Schuyler Dixon. “The day he left my house, I was scared. I mean, you’ve got a loose cannon out there that could go off anytime.”
