There is a possibility that Matt didn’t bring up though, and its the likelihood that Clayton gets released.
During the Q&A I had at One Buc Place with Mark Dominik a few weeks ago, he made a statement that I thought was hilarious. He actually prefaced the opportunity for the fans to ask questions with this caveat about Michael Clayton.
Michael Clayton’s name is on the depth chart in pencil.
He further expounded upon this point by talking about the players that we have brought in, and the fact that if Clayton doesn’t prove himself worthy of a roster spot in camp, he won’t have one.
So while I agree wholeheartedly with Matt that we will not trade MC, who the hell would want him, I think there is a better chance he is a FA before the start of the season, then of him sucking it up through another season for our Buccaneers.
