WR Clayton is Back!


So, yea, Mark Clayton is back with the Rams on a one-year deal, according to ESPN.  What does this mean, given the current disaster at the position?  I’ll tell you what it means – another useless receiver.

Oh what!?!?  Did he just say Clayton is useless?  What the hell is this guy thinkin’?  Yes that is exactly what I said! But before the mob of offended readers behead me, hear me out for a second.  Clayton is still recovery from a serious knee injury, that needed surgery by the way.  He is currently on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.  This means he cannot participate in practice – let alone play in an actual game – until it fully heals.  The coaching staff then must decided on whether to leave him on the PUP until week 6 of the season or to activate him as soon as this Saturday.  So in theory, Clayton will be on the PUP list for about half of the season.  See what I mean about being useless?

Nevertheless, I’m glad Clayton is back on the Rams.  He and Sam Bradford had a great rapport last season.  I advocated his signing since the season ended.  But now with Sims-Walker in the fold, and the fact that Mark will not be available for a good portion of the season, he just doesn’t seem to fit in anymore.

This is just my take on the situation.  Like it.  Love it.  Hate it.  I appreciate you for reading.
