Longtime ESPN NFL reporter John Clayton kept his sense of humor after being laid off at ESPN.

This morning, it was revealed that veteran NFL reporter John Clayton was the latest person to be laid off by the company. It is the end of an era for "The Professor," who had been at the Worldwide Leader for 23 years.

This afternoon, Clayton dropped an incredible tweet regarding his dismissal. After thanking the company and saying how much he enjoyed his tenure, he tweeted this.

This is in reference, of course, to this amazing ESPN commercial from a few years back featuring Clayton.

Tremendous. Clayton will be missed.
