Default Re: Steelers Sign FS Ryan Clark

If you look at his stats, he has been improving every year, and last year was a very good year for him. As long as he continues that trend and everything we are reading about him is at least partially true (work ethic, film study, solid tackler and improving coverage) there is no reason to think he is not an upgrade to Hope. Fortunately, because he is playing where he is, and knows the game well, seems to be a leader it looks as though he may be just what we need to help with our young corners development. The more I am reading about all this, the better I like him.
I am thinking Hope and agent just bought themselves a lower payday now that we have his position replaced. If he comes back, he will get significantly less than what he could have received if he had signed before this deal.
