Free agent RB Thomas Clayton has been suspended four games by the NFL for an undisclosed violation.
A four-game ban is often the result of a positive test for performance enhancers. The former 49ers sixth-rounder was in camp with the Cardinals this past summer. Fri, Oct 5, 2012 12:16:00 PM

Cardinals waived/injured RB Thomas Clayton.

Clayton was buried behind Beanie Wells, Ryan Williams, La'Rod Stephens-Howling, William Powell, Javarris James, and Alfonso Smith on Arizona's 90-man roster. His injury was never disclosed, but Clayton wasn't going to make the team.
Fri, Aug 24, 2012 07:24:00 PM

Cardinals signed RB Thomas Clayton.

A fringe NFL talent, Clayton has 15 career carries with the Browns and Patriots. At 28, he figures to be no more than a camp body and is unlikely to threaten Alfonso Smith for the No. 4 job.
Tue, Jul 31, 2012 08:51:00 PM

Browns waived RB Thomas Clayton.

The Browns are quickly getting healthy in the backfield, so Clayton's services were no longer needed as insurance for third-stringer Chris Ogbonnaya. Clayton wound up with a pathetic 12 yards on eight carries during his short stay.
Fri, Nov 25, 2011 01:54:00 PM

Thomas Clayton rushed three times for six yards in Sunday's loss to the Texans.

Even though Chris Ogbonnaya fumbled on his first carry, the Browns had no intention of giving the newly-signed Clayton real work. His only touches came deep in the fourth quarter with the game already over.
Sun, Nov 6, 2011 04:53:00 PM

Browns signed RB Thomas Clayton.

With Peyton Hillis (hamstring) questionable and Montario Hardesty (calf) out, the Browns needed some insurance. Clayton, a 2007 sixth-round pick of the 49ers, spent time with the Browns during last season but managed just one carry in two appearances. He's been out of the league since getting cut by the Seahawks prior to Week 1. There's no upside here, even if Hillis sits. In that case, Chris Ogbonnaya would be a better bet for carries against the Texans.

Seahawks waived or released RB Thomas Clayton, FB Dorson Boyce, WR Chris Carter, OG Paul Fanaika, OL Mike Gibson, WR Ricardo Lockette, WR Owen Spencer, RB Vai Taua and WR Patrick Williams.

Clayton was given plenty of opportunities in the preseason but didn't do much with them, taking the ball 37 times for 131 yards and two scores. A sixth-round pick in 2007, he has just seven career carries for 17 yards.

Seahawks claimed RB Thomas Clayton off waivers from Patriots.

Clayton should have a much better shot at cracking Seattle's roster than he did New England's, but he's still facing long odds. Entering his age-27 season, Clayton tallied seven carries in three games between the Pats and Browns last season.
Wed, Aug 3, 2011 06:19:00 PM

Patriots released RB Thomas Clayton.

Clayton is always bouncing on and off the Patriots' roster. He has no shot of making the team this year with at least six legit running backs in camp.
Wed, Aug 3, 2011 09:31:00 AM

Patriots declared RB Thomas Clayton, OL Mark LeVoir, DE/LB Eric Moore, OL Rich Ohrnberger, WR Taylor Price, DT Myron Pryor, CB Jonathan Wilhite, and DE Mike Wright inactive for Monday night.

Wright is the Pats' best pass rusher, so his loss is probably most notable. Fred Taylor is active, but likely only to back up the combination of BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Danny Woodhead. There are no surprises here.
Mon, Dec 6, 2010 07:17:00 PM

Patriots claimed RB Thomas Clayton off waivers from the Browns.

This will be Clayton's third stint with the Patriots since the beginning of August. He'll pitch in on special teams if he manages to be active on game days. With Fred Taylor back to full health, tailback depth is no longer an issue.
Thu, Dec 2, 2010 06:06:00 PM

Browns waived RB Thomas Clayton.

Clayton, 26, appeared in two games and had one carry for zero yards in just over a month on the roster. His chances at a future NFL impact are bleak.
Wed, Dec 1, 2010 06:47:00 PM

Browns coach Eric Mangini said the team was close to adding RB Thomas Clayton off the Patriots practice squad a few weeks ago.

Mangini also noted that they made a move because they liked Clayton, not because they were displeased with James Davis. At the very least, Clayton will be able to give the Browns some insight into the Patriots, Cleveland's Week 9 opponent.
Tue, Oct 26, 2010 10:55:00 AM

Browns claimed RB Thomas Clayton off waivers from the Patriots.

Cleveland plays New England in Week 9 -- after a Week 8 bye -- so Eric Mangini's coaching staff gets two weeks to siphon as much information of Clayton as possible. He won't be a threat for touches in the Browns' backfield.
Mon, Oct 25, 2010 06:46:00 PM

Patriots cut RB Thomas Clayton, and signed S Sergio Brown off their practice squad.

Clayton was buried on New England's depth chart, and the emergence of Danny Woodhead has rendered the former 49er expendable. S Jarrad Page (calf) was pronounced out for Week 7, so the Pats needed secondary depth.
