    I'm sure we all know that Clay had family in the NFL, I was just going through some cards this morning and started to remember some stuff.

    Clay Matthews father played for the Browns (don't know how long) but he was on their 3 teams that lost to Denver in the AFC Championship, so he never played in a Super Bowl I believe.

    Bruce Matthews (his uncle) had played for more than 15 years as an offensive lineman for the Houston Oilers and made the Pro Bowl quite frequently. From what I know he had to block for Earl Campbell, and later on was blocking for Warren Moon, and even after the Oilers moved to Tennessee he was still there in the Super Bowl when they fell to the Rams.

    Just to know Clay has a ring now for his father and uncle before him, is great. All we ever hear about is how Peyton and Eli won rings for Archie Manning, they probably won't be talking about this but I can't imagine how proud his uncle and father are of him.

    I'm glad the Titans brought his uncle aboard. Nice to know they appreciate him. Sometimes I want to root for them but the Oilers looked way better lol
