SWIFT HITTER Posted September 12, 2008 Share Posted September 12, 2008 Was Head Coach Jon Gruden trying to send a message to WR Michael Clayton last Sunday by sitting him against the Saints? Was he trying to light a fire under the unproductive receiver from Louisiana? It appears so. The St. Pete Times is reporting Michael Clayton was physically able to play last weekend and his benching had nothing to do with his previous chest injury: "Anytime you have an opportunity taken away from you, it's a blow to your pride,'' Clayton said. "But as a man and a professional, you have to stay positive and put it behind you." - St. Pete TimesClayton was referring to the fact that he was physically able to play in the game. Mike is an unrestricted Free Agent after the season and Clayton eluded to the lack of ability to showcase his assets to potential customers: "If I don't get the opportunity and everything stays the same this year, what more do I have to do?' Clayton said. "I don't mind starting over with a team that would like to let me play." - St. Pete Times :lol: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
