Is This Goodbye For Michael Clayton?

September 2nd, 2010

Oh, the agony facing Mark Dominik.

Does he flush Team Glazer’s $3.5 million in guaranteed cash to Michael Clayton for 2010? Or does he keep the blocking icon around for one more dance?

Joe’s not envious of Dominik. Cutting Clayton would have to make it awfully hard to face the boss the next morning. 

But Clayton had no catches today against Houston for no yards, on the heels of sitting out last game for seemingly no good reason. How could he possibly have earned a spot?

Veteran Reggie Brown caught three balls for strong yardage but had a drop in the red zone.

Frankly, Joe wouldn’t mind seeing them both cut, keeping Micheal Spurlock and perhaps bringing in another veteran like Laverneous Coles.

Regardless, Clayton could be ending his six-year run with the Bucs in a matter of hours. Oh, the drama.

    This is deja vu all over again. What is it, three years running we’re still talking about whether Clayton should be cut? I kind of understand Dominik resigning him last year. We had little in the way of receivers, and maybe, just maybe, he becomes the player he once was. That’s no longer the case now. We have lots of good receivers on this team. At least it seems that way based on what they have shown in camp and pre-season. Clayton has had his shot. It’s time to move on.

    At least we got one more “blocking icon” reference!

    That in itself was worth having him around, IMO. Best nickname ever!

    I like the idea of L. Coles- he may have a little juice left in the tank, but i just don’t seem this team going after a veteran.

    There isn’t any drama. Clayton isn’t going anywhere! Another great decision by Dominick to cut his loses, right?
