Clay Matthews: Like Father Like Son

Southern California linebacker Clay Matthews has indicated that he wouldn't mind a bit if he was drafted by the Browns. The Matthews family has a connection to Cleveland. Clay's father played for the Browns for six seasons. Clay Sr. was a very good LB; he made the Pro Bowl four times. Clay Jr. hopes to follow in his father's footsteps. He is 6 foot 3 inches tall and weighs nearly 250 pounds. USC plays a 4-3 defense while the Browns play a 3-4 formation, but good players can easily adjust to a new system. Clay Jr. has several talents but his main utility is in rushing the QB, something that the Browns need desperately. Football is definitely in the bloodlines of the Matthews family. Besides Clay Jr. and his father, his uncle Bruce Matthews was a Hall of Fame offensive lineman. His grandfather, also named Clay, played for San Fran in the 1950s. Clay Jr. is worth consideration by the Browns among other good rushing LBs. He could end up being a first round pick. The other team interested in Clay Jr. is New England. That makes perfect sense as Belichick coached Clay Sr. for two years in Cleveland. During those two years, Belichick turned around the Browns defense from a unit that was giving up some of the most points in the league to a group that became very stingy on touchdowns and points for opposing teams. Clay Jr. adds another wrinkle to the ever-changing draft gab. Thankfully, we rely upon others to make the tough decisions.
Go Browns!

  1. Try sixteen seasons (232 games) with Cleveland, NOT six season as you mistakenly stated in this article.
