Maurice Clarett wants another shot at professional football.The imprisoned former Ohio State running back who never made it in the NFL before pleading guilty to gun charges said in a blog from prison he is in good shape and has a "deep desire to play."Clarett, 25, earned a jail sentence of at least 3-1/2 years in September 2006 after being arrested on concealed weapons charges in Ohio.

He could be released next year.He has blogged periodically from prison, and his May 25 entry says he's trying to stay in shape that could give him another chance in the NFL.(Notably, Clarett's blog post came one day before Judge Sonia Sotomayor, who authored the ruling that dismissed his bid to enter the NFL draft as an underclassman, was nominated to the Supreme Court.)"I can't hold these feelings in anymore," Clarett said.

"I want to play football again.

I have a deep desire to play.

I love the game.

I have so much penitentiary aggression pinned up inside of me.

I want to hit someone.

I want to run the ball.

I want to tackle someone.

I want to play.

I am going to play somewhere."Clarett was a third-round draft choice by Denver in 2005.

But he never played a game.

He would be a longshot to earn a roster spot in the NFL if he tried in 2010 at age 26.

But he could be a candidate for the UFL if the start-up league is around then."I cannot accept how things ended," Clarett said.

"I won't accept how they ended.

I am 220, rock solid.

I am moving swift, running fast, and jumping high.

My mind is right and my life is in order.

I am 25 but I feel like I am 18.

I am still young.

Those who do support me deserve and want to see me out there playing again."
