The Lions will work out free agent Jimmy Clausen on Monday.
Clausen has been making the rounds, also receiving interest from the Redskins last week. He'd fill a camp-arm role in Detroit behind Matthew Stafford and Dan Orlovsky. Sixth-round rookie Jake Rudock is also on the 90-man roster. Sun, Jul 24, 2016 08:59:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Redskins worked out free agent QB Jimmy Clausen Monday.

The Redskins re-signed backup QB Colt McCoy to a three-year, $9 million deal in March and added Nate Sudfeld in the sixth round of April's draft, so it is a bit surprising they are working out backup quarterback types. It is possible they are just updating their emergency list. Clausen will likely be nothing more than a camp arm if he signs.

Ravens declared QB Jimmy Clausen, LB Albert McClellan, DB Tray Walker, DB Sheldon Price, DB Jumal Rolle, DB Jermaine Whitehead, and DE Kapron Lewis-Moore inactive for Week 17 against the Bengals.

Clausen is the No. 3 quarterback behind Ryan Mallett and Matt Schaub.

Jimmy Clausen is a healthy scratch for Week 16 against the Steelers.

Clausen, who has been competent in two starts, gets sat down while Matt Schaub, who is a pick-six machine, gets the nod as the backup behind a guy who has been with the team for two weeks. Makes perfect sense. Baltimore also declared WR Marlon Brown, RB Terrence Magee, CB Jumal Rolle, CB Jermaine Whitehead, LB Albert McClellan and DE Kapron Lewis-Moore inactive for Week 16 against Pittsburgh.

Jimmy Clausen completed 26-of-45 passes for 281 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Ravens' Week 15 loss to Kansas City.

He added 30 yards on five scrambles. Although Clausen was intercepted twice -- including Marcus Peters' pick-six -- the Ravens were surprisingly potent at moving the ball on Kansas City's defense, and Clausen made a highlight-reel play at the end of the first half on a Hail Mary touchdown connection with Kamar Aiken. Also relatively solid in last week's loss to Seattle, there's reason to believe Clausen may give the Ravens a better chance to compete in games than injured Matt Schaub. Baltimore will face Pittsburgh next.

Jimmy Clausen is the Ravens' starting quarterback Sunday versus Kansas City.

There was some late-week belief Matt Schaub would get the start, but it became clear in pre-game warmups that Clausen would be getting the nod.
Sun, Dec 20, 2015 01:16:00 PM

ESPN Ravens reporter Jamison Hensley reports Jimmy Clausen has thrown the majority of passes in pre-game warmups ahead of Sunday's tilt with Kansas City.

Banged-up Matt Schaub is "doing a lot of watching," per Hensley. Clausen didn't embarrass himself in last Sunday's loss to Seattle, and now appears poised to start against the Chiefs. The Ravens refused to name a starter this week.

Jimmy Clausen completed 23-of-40 passes for 274 yards and one interception in the Ravens' Week 14 loss to the Seahawks.

He only took one sack and committed the lone turnover, but failed to engineer a single touchdown drive. Clausen did about as well as could've been expected in this spot and considering his low talent level. He connected on a few jump balls with Kamar Aiken and didn't embarrass himself. The Ravens will face the Chiefs next. Matt Schaub's (chest, shoulder) availability is uncertain.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 05:15:00 PM

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Jimmy Clausen will start Sunday against the Seahawks.

He'll be filling in for Matt Schaub, who missed practice all week with a chest injury. Schefter said the Ravens haven't decided whether Schaub will sit or serve as the backup. Bryn Renner would dress if Schaub can't go. Ironically, Clausen's only other start this season came against Seattle back in Week 3. It went poorly. In an offense almost completely devoid of healthy playmakers, Clausen should be in for another brutal week.

Ravens claimed QB Jimmy Clausen off waivers from the Bears.

Clausen will be reuniting with OC Marc Trestman, who made Clausen a pet project during his time in Chicago. Clausen will back up Matt Schaub down the stretch of Baltimore's lost season.
Tue, Nov 24, 2015 04:22:00 PM

Bears waived QB Jimmy Clausen.

David Fales has been promoted from the practice squad, and will take over as Jay Cutler's backup. It's a consequential move, as Cutler is among the league's more injury prone quarterbacks. Clausen showed nothing in spot duty each of the past two seasons, which isn't surprising given his previous play in Carolina. Now 28, Clausen has probably taken his final regular season snap.
Mon, Nov 23, 2015 01:45:00 PM

Jimmy Clausen completed 9-of-17 passes for 63 yards and rushed three times for 13 yards in the Bears' Week 3 loss to the Seahawks.

Clausen never stood much of a chance in this one. The Bears were without their best receiver, Alshon Jeffery, and Clausen’s left tackle Jermon Bushrod exited halfway through the game with a concussion. To make matters worse, the undermanned Bears drew an impossibly tough Seahawks secondary this week. Clausen never even tried to stretch the field, mostly settling for check-downs and screen passes. He only completed one pass longer than 10 yards. Clausen will game-manage the Bears again next week versus Oakland if Jay Cutler’s hamstring hasn’t healed by then.
Sun, Sep 27, 2015 08:13:00 PM

Jimmy Clausen completed 14-of-23 passes for 121 yards, zero touchdowns and an interception in Chicago's 48-23, Week 2 loss to the Cardinals.

Clausen checked in for Jay Cutler, who departed with a hamstring injury, on Chicago's final possession of the first half. The sixth-year backup didn't look like he belonged on an NFL field, dinking and dunking while utterly failing to stretch the defense. Of course, Clausen wasn't exactly set up for success, coming in midway through the game with Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) sidelined. Clausen will be Rotoworld's lowest ranked quarterback if he's forced to start next week's road game against the Seahawks.

Bears No. 2 QB Jimmy Clausen has a concussion.

Clausen should be ready for Week 1, but it means he'll miss valuable reps in Thursday's preseason finale. It's also a concern after Clausen was concussed on a vicious hit late last season. Clausen is one of the league's poorer backups, but he could end up making starts if Jay Cutler's career continues its downward trajectory.
Mon, Aug 31, 2015 02:31:00 PM

Jimmy Clausen completed 17-of-27 passes for 151 yards and also completed a two-point conversion in the Bears' preseason opener.

Clausen was sharp against the Dolphins' backups. He kept the chains moving with long drives, avoiding turnovers and sacks. Clausen has settled in as a viable NFL backup and would get the nod if something happened to Jay Cutler.
