6th Round Pick Clay Working Odd Jobs to Pay Off Debts

The Dolphins selected Tulsa fullback Charles Clay in the sixth-round of the 2011 draft. Clay is in-debt to his agents and trainers, and the bills are piling up. So to stay afloat he’s been receiving day labor type work with a company called LPD, which has him cutting gas at oil wells, doing odd jobs like cleaning the jacks to make ends meet. “It’s hard times right now,” Clay told Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

”I’m working little small jobs and things to get money. Not getting an income right now is tough, especially when I’m trying to have a facility to workout in, and have to pay for things like [trainers].” Clay says his pay is not much. “It’s tough, but at the same time you’ve got to get by somehow,” said Clay, whom the Dolphins envision as an H-back that creates matchup problems for linebackers.

“I’m pretty sure there are other guys doing the same thing. Nobody is getting any kind of income. You have to get money some kind of way. You get your name called and it’s kind of like it’s a one day deal,” Clay said. “I’m just ready for this whole situation to be settled so I can get back to playing football. Once it’s settled I’ll be on the next flight out. I’ll be headed to Miami ASAP.”
