Buccaneers | Michael Clayton on the bubble

Mon, 16 Aug 2010 05:34:32 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Michael Clayton is clearly on the bubble, according to Pat Yasinskas, of ESPN.com. Clayton has worked hard in camp and hasn't looked bad.

The question remains whether the team would want to keep Clayton as a No. 4, No. 5 or No. 6 wide receiver.

Buccaneers | Money may be only reason Michael Clayton still has a job

Sun, 09 May 2010 07:28:19 -0700

Sat, 13 Mar 2010 06:47:17 -0800

Rick Stroud, of the St. Petersburg Times, reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers do not plan on making any decision on the future of WR Michael Clayton until after training camp. According to ProFootballWeekly.com, Clayton is due a $1 million deferred bonus March 15 and according to sources, the Buccaneers are close to releasing him. However, the deferred bonus is part of the $10 million in guarantees the team owes Clayton as part of the five-year, $24-million contract he signed in 2009. As a result, there is no roster bonus or new money that would quicken a decision by the team on Clayton.
