Understandable, but doesnt it seem almost ridiculous that Clayton learned our playbook in one week. Gilyard presumably had it since he was drafted and yet showed no handle of the offense.

I also don't know why so many people are saying he doesn't want to work hard at making the team. That's pure speculation. He has proven to be a determined person, willing to work hard in the past.
So all that time sitting at homer not practicing/playing, with a playbook in his house, and he still could not learn our simple west coast offense?
Remember that he missed minicamp because the University of Cincinnati hadn't held graduation yet. He had a pulled hamstring that kept him out of a game or two and he had a nagging wrist injury that required surgery after the season.
Sure he sounds like a great guy, nobody has called him a bad person who is a cancer in the locker room. He carries himself like a professional but the fact remains he has showed us next to nothing on the field.
I think that given time he would have been an effective weapon for Bradford and I expect that he will eventually be productive for an NFL team somewhere. Things have not gone well for him in St. Louis but he's a good person and I hope he finds success wherever he ends up.
