“I am humbled by the opportunity the Omaha Nighthawks have given me and will dedicate myself on and off the field to prove that I can be a valuable member of the team and the Omaha community,” Clarett said.  “I am committed to working hard to earn the right for a second chance in football and more importantly in life.”

The UFL is a far cry from the NFL, but it will certainly provide a challenge for Clarett as he acclimates to the game once again.
