Maurice Clarett takes step towards prison release

Former Ohio State and Denver Broncos running back Maurice Clarett is awaiting a judges decision that would transfer him to a community-based correction facility after spending over three years in prison.

The new facility is not a
“lock-down institution” and Clarett will be evaluated for release within six months, according to the Associated Press. He was arrested for aggravated robbery and carrying a concealed weapon in 2006.

Seeing Clarett and Charles Rogers’ names in the news this week should prove to be a reminder of what not to do for NFL draft hopefuls this month.

    Breaking news: The Detroit Lions are hosting Clarett for a workout.

    He needs guidance from Tebow.

  4. milehiclown says: Apr 7, 2010 7:54 AM

    Shanny will sign him.
    Idea: trade Fat Albert for Clarett. Clarett to the skins and Albert to jail for robbing the league of zillions of dollars for terrible play.

    I hope those foreign gangsters he was running and gunning for doesn’t want any of that money he borrowed. I’m sure they are still pissed and watching this situation closely.

    The “He’s going to…” jokes really aren’t funny. The only way Mo will ever see a down in the NFL is if the guy he’s stealing cable from has the RedZone Channel.

    Shanny and the skins LOL

    “Seeing Clarett and Charles Rogers’ names in the news this week should prove to be a reminder of what not to do for NFL draft hopefuls this month.”
    The players need to be reminded NOT to roll through the streets with a bullet proof vest on, half a bottle of Grey Goose in the tank, 3 Handguns, 1 AK-47, and a CD of kid’s songs recorded by inmates?

    I have read Clarett’s blog a few times. I really hope for his sake that once he is out of prison, he remembers what it is like to be locked up in that little cell.
    Charles Rogers is just a waste of skin. Guy had the world by the @ss and smoked it away. I saw in an article a few weeks ago that Rogers weighs 260-270. Looks like he might be on the Jamarcus Russell diet.

    Takes step? If he runs out it might take him another year, with that .40 time n all…

    I second that motion. May it be that now until forever we ban “Now he’ll go to the Bengals, bc they are criminals” jokes. It’s just not funny, it’s stale, it’s lazy, it’s been done. Use your ingenuity. If you don’t have any ingenuity, do everyone a favor and follow the sheep to espn.com.

    Is it true Pittsburgh is interested in Clarett ?

  13. Jack Burton says: Apr 7, 2010 8:50 AM

    Shanny could take another chance on him, why not that backfield could use another oxygen thief.

  14. hnirobert says: Apr 7, 2010 8:59 AM

    Maybe Tebow can absolve him of his sins.

  15. EdgarSnyder says: Apr 7, 2010 9:03 AM

    kid had all the talent in the world. might have one shot left. knees have plenty of tread and still under 30.

    @EdgarSnyder

    Exhibit Z: Why Shanahan shouldnt be allowed to be in charge of the draft.

  19. Bob Nelson says: Apr 7, 2010 9:48 AM

    As a Pro Football site, why would you discuss a person in prison who has never taken a regular season snap or even one special teams play in a regular season game??
    The guy never made it to the NFL level and therefore should not be a subject of a pro football site.
    Furthermore the person only had one season of college football before dropping out of school his freshman year.
    He is lower than a nobody.

    Which puts Maurice Clarett exactly one step above you Bob Nelson.

    The man has paid his debt to society, unlike a certain Steelers QB.

  22. imongo says: Apr 7, 2010 10:28 AM

    You can count among your blessings the fact that you will likely never see Maurice Clarett play professional football. He has somehow managed to earn a place in this blog how? I’m not even sure this clown can make a living being a thug. If nobody cares about the person he’s become, how much do you think anyone cares about his release from prison? He’s a washed up nobody.

    AFC North, here he comes. Get ready.

  25. Rasta says: Apr 7, 2010 11:28 AM

    Sant Tebow could absolve him of his sins and circumcise him at the same time. then he will be blessed also.

  26. jetboy says: Apr 7, 2010 11:39 AM

    This just in Al Davis to give Clarett 25 mill a season, says he can run fast…

  27. jersey73 says: Apr 7, 2010 11:49 AM

    Florio really needs to put up an over/under for how many days before Clarett runs afoul of the law again and ends up back in prison.
