who knows, it would be nice if he panned out...i mean he is only 25 years old, despite his 4 seasons in the league.

Imagine if Clayton ended up playing like 2004...we wouldnt have WR worries.

how does that help his hands.... unless he'd developed fat fingers?

LMAO - nice

Perhaps he will get the separation he showed as a rookie back - fat fingers... jeesh

last year was make or break... this year is stay or trade.... year after that is trade or release

Maybe if I'm down on Clayton and hate him he'll do good...

Sr made a good point that the one time he had success was in his rookie year where he was around 210 pounds. When he started to bulk up at the request of Gruden he couldn't gain seperation and started getting injured and that led to a loss of confidence and drops.

I don't know if I should subscribe to that theory but if he is quicker and starts making more plays then we can assume SR was correct in why Clayton just dropped off the map.

If Clayton is in the works to try and regain his rookie form, then good for him.  I too would rather see him be successful, and be a consistent receiving threat again.  We all know he can block very well, but he is paid to catch footballs. I hope between hearing Clayton's work and Adams' work in the offseason that this only provide a preview of a hungry football team to get farther this season.

If Clayton wants to stay in the NFL - well he has to get back to his rookie form or very close to it.

   Getting heavier can create lethargy in the mind as well as the body, which affects concentration. I don't know what his "ideal" weight is, but if being lighter helps his game, then for him less (weight) really is more (productivity). Just catch the damn ball!

Clayotn could weigh 199 pounds, and he is not going to blaze a 4.3, or a 4.4.  The issue is his slow motion breaks out of his cuts, and his plaster of paris hands.

He can get down to 190lbs if he wants, but he needs to remember how to run routes and catch the damn ball or none of that matters.  [banghead]

While the pounding his knees took with the added weight that was asked to be put on from Gruden, the injury free and medical free off season will allow him the chance to get in the need practice as well as the conditioning he has not been able to get in the past three off seasons which is a good thing for him mentally

He's also been a lot stiffer in the upper body since his rookie season...possibly from too much work in the weight room.

Anytime you add muscle mass to get bigger it is going to constrict your flexibility, thus making it harder for your body to move if say you were 200 pounds of dense muscle, to the point where you will need to work on you reaction or quick twitch muscles.
