Steelers undrafted running back John Clay tried to walk off the practice field today as he reportedly walked towards the lockerroom. Both Mark Kaboly and Ed Bouchette reported the event via Twitter and both said that Clay was tracked down by Steelers staff member and convinced to return. Clay returned in time for drills to end, but this is not a good sign.
Clay left Wisconsin a year early as he figured he was a lock to be drafted. He wasn\’t and going undrafted hurt him according to reports. While he is a big powerful back, he is one dimensional and he has a long way to go in his development. He has almost no chance at making the 53 man roster and this incident today may have hurt his chances at making the practice squad.
Stay tuned as this is developing and Clay might not make it to the game against the Eagles.
