Patriots Claim RB Thomas Clayton Off Waivers

Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com reports the New England Patriots have claimed running back Thomas Clayton off waivers.

Clayton was waived by the Cleveland Browns on Wednesday.

The 5-11, 225-pound Clayton had one carry for 0 yards in two games with the Browns, who had claimed him off waivers from New England in October.

Originally drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the sixth-round of the 2007 NFL Draft out of Kansas State, Clayton had 34 yards rushing for New England during the 2010 pre-season.

Clayton is signed through the 2011 season, and takes the roster spot vacated when Stephen Neal was placed on injured reserve.
