If I could describe Nate as a football player in one word, I would use ‘Driven’. To establish a little history here, for those of you who don’t remember Nate Clements upon leaving the Buffalo Bills...

Who Makes The Cut: CB Edition

We got a good reminder of how good he is in the back half of the season when he tore his Achilles tendon.
