Steelers Rookie John Clay Leaves Practice Field

There was a weird series of events in Steelers training camp on Monday regarding undrafted free agent running back John Clay. Let's let a series of tweets tell the story.

#steelers rookie rb john clay walks off practice field and heads toward locker room. Staffer runs after him and talks him out of leaving.

Clay returns in time for drills to end. Never seen that before. Color him gone

Could've been nothing. But it seemed very weird. Will look into it more tomorrow.

Who knows - it might indeed be nothing. I'd hate to speculate on what's going on here without knowing all the facts. But it's worth pointing out that Clay isn't exactly in a great position to create drama in camp. He's an undrafted free agent and his chances of making the team are already slim to none.
