RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Young was a starting safety for the Browns last season, but he was unable to stay healthy consistently enough to be a reliable option. He is expected to serve as the backup behind Charles Woodson at free safety.

2012

Young had a solid first season in Cleveland, registering 70 tackles, third-best on the team, and intercepting one pass. He appeared in all 16 games and earned eight starts. With the departure of Mike Adams this offseason and the return of the injured T.J. Ward, Young will be battling Eric Hagg for the other starting safety position. Should he win the job he could have minimal value in very deep IDP formats.

2010

Young will serve as the primary backup to Darren Sharper, even though the Saints view Malcolm Jenkins as the future at free safety for the team.

2009

After disappointing at the corner position for the Saints, Young has welcomed the move to safety with open arms. Since this is his first year at the new position, he will be given the opportunity to learn backing up veteran Darren Sharper. Unfortunately, this gives him no value as an IDP this year unless injuries decimate the Saints' secondary.

2008

Young, a second-year cornerback out of Kent State, spent 2007 as a reserve, recording 25 tackles and no interceptions in 14 games. Young doesn't have much chance of breaking into the starting lineup this year, with the Saints acquiring Randall Gay via free agency and Tracy Porter in the draft.

2007

Young was a four-year starter with Kent State before being scooped up by the Saints with the 66th pick in the 2006 draft. Young should make the roster, but he is unlikely to see much playing time his rookie year with Jason David and Mike McKenzie projected as the team's starting corners.
