What Should Pittsburgh Steelers Do With Ryan Clark?
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark has been a huge part of the team’s success over the past several years. In fact, the defense would not be anywhere near as terrifying as it is without his athleticism and ball hawk mentality at the safety position. Considering the 33-year-old will be a free agent at the end of the 2013 NFL season, what should the organization do with him?
Clark would like nothing more than to get a contract extension done before training camp. However, the Steelers are not talking about an extension with him, which could mean that they are considering parting ways after next season.
“I still love this game; I want to be here, and I want this team to do well,” Clark told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Clark believes he will be able to play at a high level for a couple more years, but he wants to do it in Pittsburgh next to safety Troy Polamalu. The thing about Polamalu is that he is signed through the 2014 season, and even his contract could become an issue for the Steelers.
The fact is Pittsburgh is very tight on money right now, which means they have no reason to be extending players who are in their thirties, especially if they do not have to. At this point, it looks like Clark will have to play out the season without knowing what his future holds. If he plays at a high level, as he always does, then he should have nothing to worry about.
The 12-year veteran posted 102 combined tackles, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, two interceptions and seven passes defended in 15 games last season.
