St. Louis Rams @STLouisRams (Wagoner)
Repeating, WR Titus Young will be waived today. Fisher has notified Young’s agent and said health not a factor in decision.
“It’s hard to imagine where we were a year ago. We had just hired Les and took off for the combine. We’re way ahead.” -Fisher on #NFLCombine
“We’ve got a number of free agents on our roster we want back.” – #Rams Jeff Fisher
“We spent probably four or five days with him. At the end of the interview process, we decided it was best for us to go another direction.”
“We saw Titus as an outstanding young player. The things that took place in Detroit were well documented from a media standpoint.” – Fisher
“When you get a chance to talk to him, you just want to play hard for him.” – #Rams head coach Jeff Fisher on new #Rams DC Tim Walton
“The terminology is similar to what Tim’s used to in Detroit. That in itself probably eliminates 3-4 months of work.” – Coach Fisher #Rams
“Tim is very energetic. He has a great understanding of the passing game.” – Fisher on new #Rams DC Tim Walton.
“Things aren’t really going to change from the process standpoint … He just fits in the mix as well.” – Fisher on new #Rams DC Tim Walton
“Very, very excited about the direction of our defense.” – Jeff Fisher #Rams

Rams cut ties w/ WR Titus Young today. Just because Fisher dealt w/Pac Man, doesn’t mean he wants to be known as the bone yard for mis-fits
Fisher, Snead & Demoff have a great start on building a championship foundation, Titus Young may have destroyed that lockerroom
Fisher; SJ39 we have plenty of time
Fisher; Amendola the process is on going
we put him through an extensive interview process, at the end of the day he is better suited for another team
Fisher; Titus Young we saw him as a outstanding young player. We claimed him without background check.
Fisher on Rob Ryan; We went down the road, spent a lot of time together, he spent a day with the staff and figured it was not the right fit.
Fisher; Juron and Singletary come from two different backgrounds, terminology was different, Walton knows the defense and terminology
Fisher on Gregg Williams – We felt is was important to move on
I talked to him (Walton) last year at this time, it didn’t work out. He fits in and makes us better.
Fisher we are really happy that we have hired Coach Walton (DC) and Coach Bush (LB) that’s why we are here today.
Walton has previous DC experience at college level. Most notably, led University of Miami defense in 2007.
Walton knows #Rams system from time under Jim Schwartz with Lions. Also worked with Rams assistant DB coach Brandon Fisher in Detroit.
It is official: #Rams name Tim Walton team’s new defensive coordinator. Walton was most recently the DBs coach for Detroit.

Just FYI, it’s as official as it can get on Titus Young. League has posted Rams waiver request on Young as part of daily NFL transactions.
Fisher said there’s plenty of time to meet with Jackson before start of free agency.
Fisher says team still hopeful of re-signing Danny Amendola and keeping RB Steven Jackson.
On the sujbect of Rob Ryan backing out of d-coordinator job, Fisher said after a meeting with Ryan & staff it was clear it wouldn’t be a fit
Fisher said Young is healthy.
Fisher said Young was at Rams Park for 4-5 days this week as part of extended interview process and Rams decided it just wasn’t a fit.
Rams coach Jeff Fisher says Titus Young will be waived today; says Young’s agent has been notified.

Is Titus Young a headcase, or is it ego? Talented. troubled. Entitlement is really bad. Almost delusional.
Only team to do so after Lions waived him. Can’t see anyone putting in claim this time.
Titus Young is eligible to be claimed off waivers on Tuesday at 4:00 p.m. ET (not Monday due to holiday). Can’t imagine he gets claimed.
If Schwartz and Fisher couldn’t handle Titus Young, his next team may be the Mean Machine.

Titus Young, can you be that dumb?
Evan Silva @evansilva
So Titus Young goes back on waivers. #Rams were only team to claim him first time. Fully expect him to clear waivers this time & become UFA.
