Clayton expressed gratitude for his time at ESPN, which he described as the second-best relationship of his life behind his marriage.
Clayton has been with ESPN for 23 years and was inducted into the writers wing of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2007.
He added, "I am well taken care of by ESPN", noting that he can still be heard on his daily radio show in Seattle.
