Maurice Clarett Just Wants to Play Football


"If you see too many white people, you've hit Utah" - Son of a bitch.

You may or may not remember the name Maurice Clarett, so let’s do the time warp again. It’s the summer of 2003 and love is in the air. After winning the previous seasons NCAA championship, freshman star running back Clarett was dismissed from THE Ohio State for filing a false police report claiming over 10,000 dollars in clothing, equipment, etc were stolen from a car he “borrowed” from a dealership. He spent some time in Los Angeles, tried his hand at the justice system, and eventually was drafted by the Denver Broncos. Surprisingly, not playing competitive football for over 2 years put Maurice behind the 8 ball, and he was released by the Broncos, where many expected to never hear from him again. That didn’t go over so well.

Reasons for his return, after the jump.

 

Oh hey there UFL, I didn’t hear you pick the lock on the back door and start to rifle through my pantry.

The Omaha Nighthawks have added Maurice Clarett to the active roster.

The United Football League team announced the move Thursday.

Clarett spent last season with the team, calling it a chance to rebuild his life. The former Ohio State star was suspended by the NCAA for taking improper inducements, failed to make it in the NFL, then spent 3½ years in prison for having a hidden gun and holding up two people outside a Columbus, Ohio, bar in 2006. (via ESPN)

This is Claretts second season with the UFL, but he hopes to be the starting running back this season. Shoot for the skies, Maurice.

The bad news here is that with the NFL almost surely locked out, Clarett could see his job being challeneged by juggernauts like Tatum Bell and, ::googles “unimpressive running back”::, Ronnie Brown. Ugh, it’s going to be a long summer.

And yes, I called him Claurice about six times in this article.

Yeah, so then you grip forcibly, but you don't wanna pull her hair, so treat her like a cat.
