T.J. Clemmings never quite worked out in Minnesota, but Washington was willing to give him a chance.

Washington claimed the former Vikings offensive lineman off waivers Sunday, per the league’s transaction wire.

Clemmings, a former fourth-round pick, struggled at both left and right tackle, and was given a shot at guard jobs as well before the Vikings pulled the plug yesterday.

He’s still just 25 and has some athletic ability, so Washington apparently decided to kick the tires.

  1. I would really like to see things work out for him. He was thrown to the wolves and forced to be a starter at left & right tackle which wasn’t his natural positions. He kind of got a raw deal. If Washington lets him develop at the guard spot he could be good.

  2. he should have got an award in courage last year just for showing up to work after absolutely brutal play on the field.

    I wasn’t really expecting any Viking offensive linemen to get picked up.

    Because they’re a terrible collection of lifeless carcasses.

    Ought to be just right for the terrible collection of lifeless carcasses that the Packers have on defense! And that’s even after they got rid of the criminal ex-Viking lineman…..

  4. He was quite possibly the worst starting player in the entire league last year. As a Vikes fan I’ve watched years of horrible, inept line play in the Rick Spielman era but Clemmings managed to make all the other bums look like Randall McDaniel by comparison.

  5. He didn’t play well but in his defense the Vikings played him out of position by necessity. And he wasn’t the only problem on the offensive line.

  6. Has Washington reviewed any game tape of the Viking oline? If you can’t make it at any of the four positions on that sad excuse of a line it is time to get your realtor license.
