Packers linebacker Clay Matthews was selected by Green Bay with the 26th pick in the 2009 draft.  He knew that, the Packers knew that, most of the football loving world knew that, but for a short period of time Clay's mother had somehow gotten confused.  

Leslie Matthews thought her son had been drafted by the Patriots.  In a story shared by Clay for the first time today, he explained the comedy of the confusion and how it eventually all got straightened out.
