Clay Matthews Jr. and Clay Matthews III
There have been quite a few Matthews in the NFL over the years—and it all started with Clay Matthews Sr. The elder Matthews had a short career as an offensive lineman with the San Francisco 49ers, but he set the stage for both his sons—and their sons—to have NFL success. Clay Jr. and Bruce both followed their father’s footsteps into the league—with Clay Jr. becoming a very productive linebacker and Bruce developing into a Hall of Fame offensive lineman.
The Matthews family has continued to produce NFL talent, with Clay Jr’s son Clay Matthews III becoming a top linebacker with a Defensive Player of the Year award to his name, and Bruce’s son Jake getting selected by the Atlanta Falcons in the top 10 of the NFL draft. The Matthews have the NFL in their bones—literally.
