Default Clarett: 'I want to play football again'

“I can’t hold these feelings in anymore,” Clarett said. “I want to play football again. I have a deep desire to play. I love the game. I have so much penitentiary aggression pinned up inside of me. I want to hit someone. I want to run the ball. I want to tackle someone. I want to play. I am going to play somewhere. I cannot accept how things ended. I won’t accept how they ended. I am 220, rock solid. I am moving swift, running fast, and jumping high. My mind is right and my life is in order.

“I am 25 but I feel like I am 18. I am still young. Those who do support me deserve and want to see me out there playing again. I play with some pretty good athletes back here. In the penitentiary you could say basketball is football. Back here everything is aggressive. Everything is intense. I know I am an asset to someone’s locker room on so many levels. I’ve survived some of life’s worst struggles. I am not a statistic.”

I think he's pretty delusional if he thinks he can still play football with these young guys that are in great shape and have been playing the last few years. The dude needs to realize that he'll never be an NFL player and he totally blew it.

Wink Re: Clarett: 'I want to play football again'

Sorry pal, but you had your chance and you blew it but may I suggest the Indoor Football League or the Arena Football League 2 ( the minors for AFL)?

Default Re: Clarett: 'I want to play football again'

he could get a training camp invite from someone if he truly has some of his game left after prison but i think most teams will count his character as a big minus in that department and it may be hard for him to stick.

His character part will be far from the issue with him. He's 25 years old and hasn't even played a season of football since he was like either a Freshman or Sophmore in college. He won't be anywhere near the average RB in the NFL. Hell, he'll make Wali Lundi look like Walter Payton after all of that missed time.

When he was drafted to the NFL he wasn't any good because he had already missed to much time. He's got no chance. He MIGHT be good enough for Arena football or something of that nature but that is it.

You think that Goodell may just have something to say about this?

You know, I'm beginning to think that there could be a future for a new PPFL........Post Penitentiary Football league.............there are certainly lots of potential "graduate" draftees and coaches (those too old to play)................could make for some interesting "aggressive" rivalries.........especially, if the rules are reverted to the less pansy ones of the 60's.

Default Re: Clarett: 'I want to play football again'

What a waste. Denver was out of their minds for drafting him in the 3rd round. Guy showed up 20 pounds overweight and didn't even make it one season. How many people around here would be furious if our third round pick fizzeled out before the end of his first season? Now he wants back?!

Sorry, but first impressions are hard to forget.

I'm always rooting for the underdog.

I hope he has got his life together, and I hope he can make a life for himself. It would be a good story for a bunch of kids, who think their lives are over.

Especially the thousands of athletes who were stars in college, who didn't make the most of the education they were receiving for free.

Actually, he didn't even make it to the season. He was cut before the season even started he was so bad.

Vick will play again in the NFL........Clarett might too but it will be in the CFL or Arena football league.

I am too. I realize that most of what the posters above you said was true. Time missed is a huge factor. Trust, or lack thereof is nearly as big. He's 25 years old and the odds are almost insurmountable but I'd be pleased to see him get an invite to a camp somewhere and show a flash of something. Maybe he doesn't make the team and maybe he ends up playing in Canada for a while and if it never got past that point I think that would be a success considering where he's sitting.

I want to see Michael Vick come back and right his life. I'd like to see Pac Man figure it out, grow up, and make something of himself. It's always hard to watch people with amazing natural ability waste it like this.

While I agree in giving second chances, these guys should prove themselves other than serving their sentences. The NFL is a privelge to be earned - not a right.

I would love to see Vick (and Pacman) turn his life around. I, personally, am not sure that under the circumstances, I'd like to see him get back in the NFL at all. But, if it is to happen, it should definitely not be FIRST "come back" and THEN "right his life." You don't prove that you've "righted your life" while you're in prison, where you have no real opportunity to get into trouble. He has not earned his way back into the NFL merely by spending time in jail........just like nothing is proved if a porn addict is blindfolded or a cocaine addict is under lockdown for 18 months, and then claims that he has turned his life around. Let him do some real "hard time" working on turning his life around in the "real world" while forced to realize his "dream" is entirely dependent on it.

An individual with a 40-year career path could possibly take two or three years to prove him/herself. For most athletes, any time over 10 years is a gift, so any time over a year out of the league decreases that persons chances of making a comeback in the profession. For that reason, I am in favor that once a person fulfills his debt to society or suspension, then give him the opportunity to swim or sink. The opportunity was given, and he it doesn't work, then move on.

I will speak for myself only, and even though I haven't been involved in criminal activities, there are still some things that I've done in the course of my life that I am not proud and wish that I would have thought differently at the time. Unfortunately, I fall into the BEFORE category in that slate of life.

My point in the post was looking at the timeline in a professional athlete's career, if instead of saying how many years the employment should delayed, it would be more accurate to just say up front, I don't think he should ever return. Even the best of them can't take a five year suspension and return to a team. Therefore, if a year, or two at the most doesn't give a person a different perception, then it's time for both the team and the person to move into a different direction.
