The Pewter Report (an excellent Bucs blog) is reporting that Michael Clayton has resigned with the Bucs. More interesting though, is that they also report Clayton was offered more money by the Seahawks and ended up staying with the Bucs nonetheless.
The Hawks liked Housh and probably made him an offer after a visit, but made Clayton an offer without a visit (though some of the guys are familiar with him, of course). This looks like Housh was indeed a second choice for the Hawks in my eyes, and it sounds like he was the same for the Vikings. Will this light a fire under the Vikes' behind? Time will tell.
Also worth noting is that the Bucs had scheduled an interview with Housh for tomorrow. Will that go forward? We know they're after another guy or two, but with no QB it seems silly to spend money on Bryant, Clayton and Housh...
