Keenan Clayton doesn’t know what his sophomore season in the NFL will be like. Clayton’s hoping to earn a starting spot as the Eagles’ weak-side linebacker, but because of the lockout, he just isn’t sure. “I hope so,” Clayton said. “It’s what I’m working toward. But I know that eventually me and [Jamar Chaney] will be out there together, some way, somehow.”
Another new face showed up at the Eagles’ lockout workout Monday. No, not Donovan McNabb. Keenan Clayton, the Eagles’ second-year linebacker, worked out with several teammates for the first time this season at the Memorial Sports Complex, doing drills under the supervision of the Power Train staff. He joined fellow second-year linebacker Jamar Chaney, offensive tackle Austin Howard, defensive tackle Trevor Laws, running back Eldra Buckley and professional hockey player T.J. Brennan, a Buffalo Sabres draft pick.
The NFL and players groups have agreed to meetings during the next four days in Minnesota — with a twist. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and his staff and NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith and his staff will meet without players or owners there. This will be the fifth round of “secret talks” between the players and the league.
