Clay Matthews Lays The Smackdown

Yeah, I know smack down is two words, but we’re talking about the WWE version here. That’s right. Professional wrestling. WWE Smackdown.

Who Is The Defensive Player Of The Year?

Clay Matthews

There was a point in the season when everyone thought the answer to the question was a foregone conclusion. Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews.
