Rock Bottom

Wow talk about optimism. Maurice Clarett was just sentenced to a minimum of 3.5 years in prison and yet he's still talking about playing football:

His attorneys said they hoped Clarett's hopes of playing pro football are not dashed."There are institutions in Ohio that actually have opportunities to work out and train for football and other athletics," Hoague said. "We're hoping he can do that, and stay in shape and be focused on that."

ESPN.com - NFL - Clarett to serve a minimum of 3½ years

Dream on dude. There is no way you will be in the NFL after spending 3 years in prison.

Well maybe the you can play for the Raiders, they are still stuck in the 80's and it could take decades for them to improve. Or you might be able to play in Canada, they don't mind letting criminals play, just ask Ricky Williams.
