View Full Version : Broncos release Clarett

DENVER (AP) - Maurice Clarett's first stab at the NFL will end the same way his last two seasons on the sideline did: no carries, no yards, one big disappointment.

Unable to practice much or play at all during the preseason, Clarett will be released by the Denver Broncos later this week, his agent said Sunday.

"The kid called me and let me know they're going to let him go," Steven Feldman said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.

Clarett's pending release also was reported by ESPN.com on Sunday.

Broncos spokesman Jim Saccomano said the team didn't plan to release anybody until Tuesday, which is the deadline for NFL teams to cut rosters to 65 players. The Broncos were off Sunday and scheduled to practice Monday.

The pending release marks a disappointing start to the NFL career of the troubled former Ohio State running back, who missed two years of football after leading the Buckeyes to the national title in 2002.

He got in trouble with the law and was suspended for the 2003 season. At that point, he hadn't been out of high school long enough to be eligible for the NFL draft, so he sued in federal court to become eligible and eventually lost that case.

While sitting out the 2004 season, Clarett turned on Ohio State, alleging coach Jim Tressel arranged for him to get passing grades, cars and money for bogus summer jobs. An NCAA investigation failed to verify any of Clarett's accusations.

He was a bust at the NFL scouting combine and most thought he would be a low draft pick, if a draft pick at all. The Broncos, who have a history of producing great runners from deep in the draft, surprised many by picking him in the third round.

At the time, coach Mike Shanahan said Clarett's sordid past didn't bother him.

"First of all, I think you don't get too caught up in that," Shanahan said. "I know the situation, what's happened. His slate is clean and we're giving him an opportunity."

Clarett made the unusual move of agreeing to a contract that included no signing bonus. He relinquished what would have been about a $400,000 bonus in exchange for incentives that could have earned him up to $7 million over four years.

If a team claims him off waivers, it will assume the terms of the contract. More likely is that Clarett will clear waivers, become a free agent and sign a new deal.

"I'd love to see someone pick up the contract," Feldman said. "The way the incentives in the contract are, he won't get them with another team."

Clarett came to Denver and said he simply wanted to start over and blend in. He talked a good game, but his chances of making the team were hurt early in training camp when he injured his groin and missed nearly two weeks of practice.

Some teammates questioned Clarett's commitment to rehabilitating the groin and as the missed practices piled up, Shanahan stopped defending Clarett to the media.

Clarett stopped talking to reporters. In one of his last interviews, he told the Denver Post he wanted to be with the Broncos, but "if I get cut, if I don't have a place here, it won't be my first setback."

Clarett was listed fifth on the depth chart behind Mike Anderson, Tatum Bell, Quentin Griffin and Ron Dayne, who is having a good camp. Shanahan did not play Clarett in any of Denver's three preseason games.

"I think at this point, I'm sure the Broncos did what they thought they needed to do," Feldman said.

Asked if his client was completely healthy, the agent said, "I'm certain he is."

As for the future: "I'm not real confident of anything at this point," Feldman said. "We'll see what happens now."

Thats going to be a stat thats pretty hard to nail down. I'm sure he'll take issue with what your definition of 'error' is. Then, of course, it would be easier to pin a tomato seed to a picnic table than get him to agree on what an actual prediction is. Rather, I should say, an actual prediction by him.

In the past I've had the urge to point out some of his foot in mouth type of posts and really dog him about it. But in the end I usually let them slide.
Think about it.....The poor bastards a Donco fan! Any type of humiliation, ridicule, or even just smearing poop in his face by any of us would just be a little ray of sunshine in his crappy world.

Since he ne never played a down in the NFL does this still qualify as a draft 'bust'?

Most experts say that you can't tell if a player is a 'bust' for at least two seasons after the draft.

....the Donks don't need Clarett.....after all, they've got the Heisman trophy winning Ron Dayne.


Personally....I think Tagliabooo made Shanahan Draft Clarett in the 3rd as further punishment for cheating on the salary cap.

It's frustration. First, they hold him out because of his shoulder. Then, DV says the docs don't want him to play. Then after that, DV is kinda questioning Bell's heart. But all the while, they say he's a beast in practice and tearing it up.

If he doesn't play Friday vs. the Rams, I'm going to start getting worried.

James 4.1 yards per carry, P. Manning 200+yd 2 TD in the first half. That doesn't look that impressive to me.

I would without a doubt be laughing my ass off at KC if they pulled a similar stunt... so, I can appreciate the humor you're all getting out of this one.

In reality, I never liked the pick and have expressed as much... he's gone, they blew the pick and that's it. They made the decision so, if they're getting ripped by everyone, so be it.

I've said since the signing that too much was being made about a guy that was set up to be the #3 at best option. So, yes... I would have loved for them to have spent that pick on some Olineman or other position and have that guy battling it out now for a depth spot. It didn't happen...

I'm more in awe that it's Mike Anderson and not Tatum Bell entering week one as the #1 RB. I'm not surprised at his talent, we've seen him rock. I'm just surprised he's held off Bell...

I wish Anderson the best and really like him as a player. It's too bad that his performance so far is being over shadowed by all the Clarett BS.

I don't understand the "well it was free anyway" philosophy.

If I won some kind of a contest and got a new car as the prize, and then I traded it for a sack of horsecrap saying "Oh well, it was a free car anyway," the rest of the world would have no problem seeing that this was poor judgement on my part. The fact that something was received for free does not mean that it's impossible to use it foolishly.

I don't know why the perceived need to make excuses for a bad pick. It was just a bad pick. They happen all the time.

There has been talk that other teams (Dallas being one of them) were looking at Clarett in the draft, possibly round 5 or 6. Denver didn't have a pick in the 4th (I think) so, they took a chance. It didn't work. Shit happens.... the world keeps rollin' along.

As far as the Maurice Clarett pick goes, I couldn't be more happy. I mentioned it back when he was being laughed at for his combine time. That doesn't bother me. TD didn't run fast during 40's either. But he had instincts that were uncanny. Clarrett is the same way. He led his team to a championship during his freshman campaign because he knew how to bounce out of tackles, when to spin to force a miss, and when to turn the boosters ON! If the NFL would have allowed this kid to use his natural God given talent when he wanted to come out, he'd have been drafted in the first five picks and we'd have never had a shot at him. I love how we're being laughed at for using a compensatory pick that we didn't even know we'd get until a month before the draft to take a kid with first round instincts.

Without a doubt I'm disappointed. I think Clarett could still be something. But I knew from the minute that I heard about his contract that he didn't have the maturity to play under such conditions on a deep squad like we've got.

He doesn't have the work ethic or mental maturity to keep a job in the NFL. Or hell, maybe even any job at all. He's Lawrence Phillips.

There's no doubt about it... despite doing himself NO favors in the combines, the Broncos of all "RB friendly" teams with the ability to turn no-names into stars, gives him a freaking gift of an opportunity and he can't cut it.

Ron Dayne for crying out loud is doing well (which is what he does in the preseason anyway), but he's doing what he needs to do.

Bah! it was a free pick. We were gambling on the houses money. It's not like we drafted Ryan Simms in the first round here or anything...

Weak. Sims was actually considered a good pick at the time...not a bumbling idiot..... and he's finally starting to well pretty well. He still has a chance to be an impact player.......... not a bumbling idiot.

You're awesome Taco.

You would sooner drown than leave go of an anvil out of pure spite. There is only one thing I like about you and it's your total disregard for dignity in cases like this.

Never change that big guy, please.

Get with the times, Taco. We're way more pissed at the Siavii pick than the Sims pick.

Yet another in a long list of personnel screw ups by Shanarat the Jeen-yus.

It was a draft mistake. They happen. Now it's over. I'm much more interested to see if the defensive line moves pay off for Denver; so far it looks like we might have improved in that area.

Engelberger is solid but I wouldn't bet the farm on the Brown rejects. You will be danged lucky if Courtney Brown plays 6+ games.

He hits more than he misses when it comes to bringing in talent, and that's all you can ask for...

Yeah, Brown's durability is a big concern. Coyer platoons his d-line so no one guy carries more than a part of the load. Hopefully this will help.
Pryce looks like he might have regained his form. If so he and Engleberger will make a nice pair. This should free up our LB's to fly around and raise hell.
Of course not a single down of real ball has been played yet. We'll all know a lot more about our teams come 9/11 (does it feel weird looking forward to that date or is it just me?)

No matter the team... no matter the player.... if you select someone in the 3rd round and you cut them before pre-season is over...

It's a huge mistake by ratface... and the morons who defend him.

Now I'm going to have to pick another Bronco to be my whipping boy. I'll probably go back to Lepsis.

The local news here says that the first one is the next coming of Emmitt Thomas. Apparently he can heal cripples with his touch, and has a pot of gold at the end of his rainbow.

I guess one of the other ones is dropping rapidly, though. Maybe he's refusing to take growth hormones or something.
