Golden Nuggets: 49ers get Thomas Clayton for another year

While some won't care about this news, others will likely be quite ecstatic....or at least pleasantly pleased.  After blowing out his knee, Thomas Clayton was placed on waivers by the 49ers.  According to the first Maiocco link, Clayton cleared waivers without being claimed by any other NFL team.  This means he reverts to the 49ers injured reserve list and the 49ers retain his rights.  So, while we likely won't hear any other football news about Clayton this year, he'll get another crack at making the team in 2010.  Of course, it seems like running backs coming off an ACL injury don't really have their legs back until the middle to end of the next season at the earliest.  This would indicate that Clayton has a pretty good chance of not making the 49ers 53-man roster next year.  I guess we'll just have to wait and see next year.  On to the links...
