As he crossed the goal line to score his first NFL touchdown, Ravens rookie punt returner Kaelin Clay had the football tucked safely under his arm, a group of would-be Cleveland Browns tacklers in his wake.
Before Monday night, Clay was probably best known for his gaffe last year in his final college season at Utah. Playing against Oregon, Clay had gotten behind the Ducks defense for what should have been a 78-yard touchdown catch. However, about a yard before he got into the end zone, Clay dropped the ball. Oregon defender Joe Walker picked it up and returned it 99 yards for a touchdown.
Clay has said repeatedly that he's learned his lesson...
