Broncos | Shanahan comments on Clarett arrest

During his press conference Wednesday, Aug. 9, Denver Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan said the team tried its best to reach out to free agent RB Maurice Clarett while Clarett was in the team's training camp last season, but that Clarett was never receptive to the organization. "We tried to reach him quite a bit when he was here. What he did have here was a lot of support from our veterans. Our players tried to really take care of this guy, and he wanted no part of it. That was one of the reasons he didn't make our football team. I don't think I've ever been around a bunch of guys reaching out to a guy more than Maurice, trying to help him, and the guy not wanting that help. That's a shame because as we all know, everybody's got issues. He was one of the few players we've had who didn't want to be helped." Clarett was charged with carrying a concealed weapon without a permit early Wednesday, Aug. 9.
