ESPN reportedly lays off Hall of Fame NFL reporter John Clayton
Clayton handled it with class, saying his 23-year relationship with ESPN was the second-best of his life after his marriage to his wife Pat, then injected some humor.
On April 26, ESPN laid off dozens of prominent on-air personalities, including Jayson Stark, Ed Werder, Jay Crawford and Dana O'Neil.
