Clayton Resigns With BucsMarch 1st, 2009
Joe has learned that his good friend “The Big Dog,” Steve Duemig, is reporting Bucs wide receiver Michael Clayton has resigned with the Bucs.
(“The Big Dog” has a trusted source on this, trust Joe.)
PewterReport is reporting this, as well. Joe thought he’d throw a bone to PewterReport since Joe has learned through his friends in the fouth estate that the PewterReport.com braintrust are avid readers of Joe.
Clayton, 26, will sign a new five-year contract with the Bucs, as first reported by WDAE 620′s Steve Duemig.
A 2004 first-round draft pick, Clayton received significant interest from other teams on the open market, including Detroit and Seattle. According to the Duemig, Clayton turned down more money with Seattle to re-sign with Tampa Bay.
Joe loves how Clayton blocks; hates how he drops passes. Let’s all hope that whatever demon keeps him from dropping passes has been exorcised.
Now, Joe resumes his treasured late-Saturday, early-Sunday drinking.
(FYI, generally when a player is off the Bucs roster, the squirrels at Buccaneers.com remove any and all photos of said player. For example, mere seconds after Black Wednesday’s news broke, none of the five players’ photos could be found on Buccaneers.com. Clayton’s photos cannot be found on Buccaneers.com as of 12:41 a.m. Sunday. Strange.)
