The logical question for any fan of superlatives: Is Clarett the best athlete ever to do hard time? (If not, who is? And, no, Rick Fox on "Oz" doesn't count.)
I mean, Clarett HAS to be the best football player, right? I'll have to check my latest edition of "Cellblock D Fantasy Guide."
Update (2:31 p.m.): OK, before all of you take my head off, Mike Tyson probably is the best athlete ever to do hard time. But Clarett as the best football player?
Update (2:33 p.m.): A commenter just offered up Jamal Lewis. I'd say Lewis would trump Clarett. But Lewis didn't have to do 3.5 years. Not even close. But we're definitely starting to put together our All-Prison Team.
Update (2:50 p.m.): A Commenter just swooped in with "Clarett was just signed by the Bengals." And someone mentioned Rae Carruth. (Yeesh: That dude is in his own class.)
