While it was pointed out Clayton was deactivated because of a chest injury, not so sure he could not have played but is rather another subtle message to the fifth year receiver that he is still in Grudens dog house for yet another season.

“We wanted to have Mike up, but we had five receivers dress. Dexter Jackson was up for return purposes. Maurice Stovall and his dynamic special teams play was important in this game. As you know, Ike Hilliard, Joey Galloway and Antonio Bryant were the three guys that started in our three receiver set. We will see Mike Clayton hopefully this week and we will let you know.”

Not a ringing endorsement for Clayton who from all accounts was the only receiver in all of training camp and pre-season games to get separation on a regular basis from DB's.

Great players cost a lot of money but help win games. High-priced players - a byproduct of poorly run front offices with bad scouting departments - only cost a lot of money.

Should have traded him in the offseason.  Maybe they aren't playing him because he's on the block

He stinks anyways so it really doesn't matter. This is where I expected him to be for the last few years anyways and he just let us down over and over again in that time period when he had the chance to play.

Please he is 100 x's better than the smurf known as the carpet muncher in Dexter Jackson.

Let's send Clayton to Seattle, he should pick up their WCO pretty quickly

Nate Burleson-WR- Seahawks   Sep. 8 - 5:29 pm et
   
      
Coach Mike Holmgren revealed Monday that Nate Burleson tore a ligament in his knee during the Seahawks' Week 1 game. Burleson will be placed on injured reserve, ending his season.
Seattle's passing game couldn't be in worse shape. Courtney Taylor was awful in the opener, but is now thrust into the "No. 1 receiver" role. The team's only other healthy wideouts, Jordan Kent and Logan Payne, are candidates to start in Burleson's split end spot. Holmgren doesn't expect Deion Branch or Bobby Engram back this week. Matt Hasselbeck's fantasy outlook is declining rapidly, and Holmgren may have to lean on the run more going forward.

It's not unheard of. Tatum Bell missed a Thanksgiving day game for Denver due to a chest bruise. Clinton Portis missed a game with a bruised chest, Steve McNair missed multiple games with a bruised chest as well. San Diego's Vincent Jackson missed a game due to a chest bruise. In 2007, Joseph Addai missed the game against the Bucs due to a bruised chest.

There are more examples, but that's more than enough for now.

Does he return kicks? Does he run a 4.3 40 yrd. ? Be sure and get back to us on that one...

So what do guys think - I mean there has to be a hidden agenda - a sordid tale waiting to be alluded to - Boldin for Clayton straight up???!!!

About as silly as the hidden agenda...

I have no idea. I was only answering the point that players don't miss games due to a bruised chest.

Clayton has tons of talent, but probably needs a change of scenery.  It was reported about a month ago, the Bucs fielded many offers for Clayton, but replied by saying they wanted to wait until after final cuts. So it might just be possible he is halfway out the door. Just hope the Bucs gets a decent return on him..... if it does happen.

I think we'll see Clayton soon enough, and hopefully Bennett also. Maybe they can give us a spark.
