The Rams placed Titus Young on waivers Friday, just 10 days after claiming the problematic wide receiver from the Detroit Lions. Young was waived by the Lions on February 4th following a turbulent 2012 campaign that ended on injured reserve in early December. Head coach Jeff Fisher did not discuss specifics about the move during a Friday news conference, though he did indicate that health was not a factor in the team's decision.
Tim Walton is the new defensive coordinator of the Rams. He spent the last four seasons as defensive backs coach for the Detroit Lions. Walton worked as a defensive coordinator at the collegiate level with Miami-Florida in 2007 and Memphis in 2008. The Rams went without a conventional defensive coordinator in 2012 as Gregg Williams sat out the entire season while serving a suspension for his role in the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal.
