    MO-CLO CRACKS UP
    pft.com

    There's a great item this morning on ESPN.com from Tom Friend regarding the unraveling of Maurice Clarett's football career and, by all appearances, his life.

    Clarett was busted Wednesday morning in an SUV with loaded guns, a hatchet, and an open bottle of vodka. He eluded police, smashed into a cruiser, was wearing a bulletproof vest, and was Tasered and maced.

    Friend writes that he received a bizarre phone call from Clarett hours before the incident. More compelling, in our view, is Friend's chronicle of Clarett's pre-draft training and his experiences with the Broncos in 2005.

    After reading the full article, we're now officially amazed that the Broncos burned a third-round pick on Clarett, given the information that surely was available with only a modest investment of time and/or effort. In late 2004, Clarett was living large (figuratively and, at 256 pounds, literally) in L.A. and then in Phoenix. His training routine was a joke. Friend reports that Clarett decided to pursue steroids to help get him into shape (although it's unclear whether Clarett ever used them).

    Friend also reports on rumors that we'd heard last year regarding Clarett's brief time with the Broncos, which rumors we coincidentally mentioned on a PFT PodCast recorded from late Wednesday into early Thursday morning.

    Specifically, we'd heard that Clarett consistently had been swigging Grey Goose from a water bottle in the team's facility. We wouldn't use it at thetime without someone going on the record given the potentially explosive nature of the revelation, which would have been amde at a time when Clarett had yet to implode. (Eventually, Jason Cole -- then of the Miami Herald -- reported that Clarett had been found in the training room with alcohol.)

    As Friend reports: "He would take that water bottle everywhere, including the Bronco weight room, and the team started getting suspicious when, before minicamp practices, he'd grab the bottle and say, 'I gotta get my Goose on.' It wasn't a joke; the Bronco players were convinced he was chugging Grey Goose."

    We'd even heard that quote -- "I gotta get my Goose on."

    Friend also reports on other facts from Clarett's cup of Irish coffee with the Broncos, including allegations of inappropriate sexual statements made at a hotel (we'd heard that one, too) and an effort to get the team's trainer fired (we hadn't heard that one).

    At the time, we also heard that a veteran running back on the team had approached Clarett and offered to help him get acclimated to the NFL, and Clarett basically told him to f--k off.

    The one issue that Friend's otherwise excellent piece doesn't address specifically is Clarett's objective in driving on Interstate 70 at 3:00 a.m. with loaded guns and a bulletproof vest. Friend suggests that the rap industry folks who had bankrolled Mo-Clo's 2004-05 West Coast tour might have been coming after him for money. But there are published reports that Clarett's arrest came near the home of a witness scheduled to testify against him next week in a trial resulting from charges that he robbed a guy at gunpoint on New Year's Day.

    Also, Clarett's bond on the new charges has been raised to $1.1 million. And that means he won't be "getting his Goose on" anytime soon.

    Then again, maybe he will. But, in prison, that phrase has a slightly different meaning.
