At least this isn't T.J. Clemmings' fault.

Clemmings has had a rough year playing both tackle positions on a team that hoped to have him watching from the sidelines all season. Instead, injuries to Andre Smith, Matt Kalil and Jake Long forced the Vikings to play him regularly.

And it's been a disaster.

Now, his management company, Priority Sports Entertainment, just made Clemmings' season even more embarrassing.

Before we get to the hilarious reactions, you should know that Priority Sports is apparently tweeting the exact same thing about every player they work with, including Vikings fullback Zach Line.

But this was too good to keep to Twitter because Clemmings has literally been one of the worst offensive linemen in the NFL. It's almost as if the analytics site Pro Football Focus (PFF) is waiting to put a big red checkmark next to his name every week. Here's the list of PFF rips on Clemmings.

Vikings-Cowboys: "T.J. Clemmings may get the brunt of the scrutiny after allowing eight total pressures and committing three penalties ... "

Vikings-Cardinals: " ... but the performances of Jeremiah Sirles and T.J. Clemmings showed that this offensive line is far from out of the woods."

Vikings-Bears: "T.J. Clemmings allowed eight total pressures and had another play where he was called for holding that nullified his ninth pressure from being counted. Clemmings also directly gave up three run stops."

Vikings-Eagles: "Clemmings gave up five combined pressures (two knockdowns) ..."

Vikings-Panthers: "Tackles Andre Smith and T.J. Clemmings struggled in the run game, earning run-blocking grades of 38.6 and 35.1, respectively."

On Nov. 17 PFF summed up Clemmings' season like this:

T.J. Clemmings in particular has been a disaster at tackle, surrendering 24 total pressures and owning one of the worst grades we have ever given a tackle over the past 10 seasons of grading.

To be fair, PFF rated him as Minnesota's third-best offensive player in a Week 11 loss to the Redskins.

Anyway, here's the funniest reactions to the tweet above.

For the record, the tweet about Clemmings racked up 61 replies. Every other player Priority Sports Entertainment tweeted the same thing about got one or zero replies.
