Broncos to release Maurice Clarett
Well I dont think anybody will be making the same mistake he did ever again.
I honestly think this might be a move to get Clarett onto the practice squad, however if it is, I am surprised he was not just placed on the squad directly. Perhaps its a cost saving manuever.
We will see, but its going to be awfully hard to get all of those incentives when you dont play on Sunday.
I think it was a noble idea to want to go out there and "earn his paycheck". I have absolutly no problem with that. Quite frankly I wish more players would play for such contracts.
Did Clarrett overestimate his ability: it would appear so. However, I think he should have negotiated a higher base salalry that still had reachable incentives for him. I am not advocating the Ricky Williams idea of "reachable goals". If memory served all he had to do was average 1600 yds a season behind the permeable Saints OLine.
Well I bet Clarett is wishing he had that guaranteed signing bonus now, but that's his and his agent's fault. But I think the Broncos are foolish to waste a 3rd round selection on Clarett because now you can look back and say, we kept these 6th and 7th rounders, we could have upgraded that position with that 3rd rounder. I'm sure somebody will pick up Clarett, but like you guys said, it could be practice squad wherever he ends up.
