Titus Young may no longer be a member of the Detroit Lions, but that doesn’t mean general manager Martin Mayhew isn’t willing to extent a helping hand to a man in need.
“We’re going to try and work with him and support him in any way possible,” Mayhew said Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine. “I feel like I want to help him deal with his problems, whatever they are, and we support them.”
Mayhew said he’s been in contact with Young’s family since he was released by the Rams and said he’ll continue to be supportive to him.
Young’s troubles have been well documented in Detroit, which led to his release on the first day teams could do so following the season. Young was claimed off waivers by the Rams — the only team to put in a claim on him — but was later released after the interview process.
Mayhew did reiterate that although he’s extended a helping hand to Young, the door is shut on any possible return to the Lions.
