    OT - Mark Clayton Retires



    Another Raven disappointment, though not in the class of Rolando...

    per his Twitter and Facebook.

    FWIW, he was a bit of a bust here, but he worked hard, had some nice games, and had a pretty terrible injury in St Louis when his career looked to be on track.

    Wish him well.

    I would say he was more than just a "bit of a bust", since he was drafted 22nd overall. But I agree that the nasty injury he suffered after being traded to the Rams probably ended his career. Which is a shame because he started that season pretty hot.

    Kinda hard to call Rolando a Ravens disappointment. He has only been in Baltimore as a Raider.

    I really wanted to see Clayton excel w/ the Rams when he left, sucks he got hurt. He was looking really good in the few games he played with them.

    He could have been a better receiver here if he had a better QB, that is a shit excuse, but i believe it.

    It looked like he was going to take off in St. Louis, then the injury. Hope he has taken care of his finances

    By all accounts, he was a great guy, but no one will ever forget fourth down in Foxborough.

    You took the exact words right out of my mouth....one of the many opportunities (early on) that Joe had of registering a 4th quarter comeback, only to be let down by one of his teammates; but then it is a team sport!

    His perfectly thrown fourth down drop against the Patriots came from none other than Joe Flacco.

    Clayton was never worth the 22nd pick, sure. But he was a decent enough #2, and probably would have made a great number 3 if we had better WRs and QBs during his time here. Always seemed like a good guy though, wish him luck in the future.

    He can go in the "Edwin Mulitalo Ring of Good Guys" that weren't good enough for the RoH.

    Patellar tendon ruptures basically mean your career is over.

    Nice guy but never lived up to his potential.
