Sam Bradford will get a chance to throw to another Oklahoma product, even if it’s a receiver he never played with in college.
The Ravens sent wideout Mark Clayton to the Rams for “late-round considerations” according to Chris Mortensen of ESPN. We like the move for St. Louis, if only because the Bradford has the least impressive wide receiver group in the league. Clayton became available after T.J. Houshmandzadeh signed with Baltimore.
A first-round pick in 2005, Clayton caught 234 passes for 3,116 yards
and 12 touchdowns. His best year came in 2006, when he racked up 67
catches for 939 yards and five scores.
Clayton isn’t a great starter, but he’s more reliable than Laurent Robinson, who was slated to be the team’s “No. 1″ receiver. Clayton also helps solve the Rams’ significant depth problem.
Robinson, Clayton, and Danny “White Chocolate” Amendola figure to be the team’s top three wide receivers Sunday against the Cardinals.
