young Clay Matthews

We told you about Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews retweeting a photo of a youngster with a wild mullet and everyone on the Internet assuming it was him, last week.

Well, now it looks like Matthews has actually tweeted a photo of himself as a youngster.

He sent it along with the message: Check your facts. Leslie had me in the neons/2 tone #caliswag.

Unlike the first photo, which every idiot with a website ran as “Clay Matthews in kindergarten,” we’re pretty certain this wee lad is of the Matthews brood. Just look at the strong jaw line, prominent forehead and steely eyes.

This photo has future All Pro linebacker (or super gay surfer) written all over it.
