    Clayton's New Nickname

    MArdy Gilliard is the Rams r esident nicknamer, having hung the moniker "White Chocolate" on Danny Amendola, and now he' s got one for his new mentor Mark Clayton. The quiet, thoughtful, spiritual veteran really has gotten instant respect from the youngsters, especially Gilyard, which is very good news.

    Gilyard calls Clayton "Mustafa" After the Lion King.

    Talking to Clayton today for a feature I am writing fro Gridiron Gateway Magazine centering on his faith and how he feels faith relates to athletics, he says he is really at home with this team already, and loves the pillars philosophy of coach Spags.

    He said he "definitely" would like to stay here after this season, and it seems to be a perfect fit in so many ways, as there IS a need for quiet leadership in a spiritual way.

    Some may look cynically on how it translates to winning, but the Rams had the most religious team ever from 1999-2002 with Warner, Bruce, Aeneas Williams, Ray Agnew, Adam Timmerman and others on the team. That worked out pretty good in terms of winning. And Albert Pujols, the most religious man in baseball, does OK as well here.

    Clayton is like Ike Bruce as a person in so many ways, like Isaac just now starting to be more vocal after admitting he has preferred to lead by example and wait to be approached for spiritual guidance as he watches and mentors his teammates.

    You can see though that Gilyard, whose locker is next to #89 , really loves the guy, and no wonder, because you see right away that Clayton is the "real deal" just like Warner, Bruce, Williams etc..

    Re: Clayton's New Nickname

    I've been a fan of Clayton for awhile.

    Had a great college career, and Baltimore, its not as if they ever have an offense.

    Rams got a steal imo.

    He's the significant veteran presence we need for our future WR A.J. Green. Soon, he's going to take the footsteps of Reverend Ike while A.J. Green will succeed Torry Holt, Gilyard will be Hakim minus the fumbles (hopefully), and Amendola will be Ricky Proehl. Henceforth, the Second Greatest Show on Turf.

    Perhaps he could be an influence on Vincent Jackson were the Rams able to work out the details.
