Default Talking extension with Clark

This is great news... hopefully they can get 'er done.

Steelers, Clark Talking Contract Extension

The Pittsburgh Steelers are interested in signing veteran safety Ryan Clark to a contract extension and have already started discussions with him, according to Jason La Canfora of NFL Network.

A deal could be in the offing prior to training camp, per the report.

Clark, who decked Baltimore Ravens running back Willis McGahee with a memorable, devastating hit in the AFC championship game, signed a four-year, $7 million contract to join the Steelers in 2006 after a stint with the Washington Redskins.

One day later after a short hospital stay for monitoring after suffering a concussion and briefly being knocked out, McGahee said that it was the hardest hit hes ever absorbed.

In 14 starts last season, Clark registered 87 tackles and one interception.

Clark is under contract through this season. Hes due a $1.7 million base salary for 2009.

The 29-year-old received a $1.65 million signing bonus from the Steelers in 2006.

In seven NFL seasons, the former undrafted free agent from LSU has recorded 342 career tackles and five interceptions.

Although hes only listed at 5′11, 205 pounds, Clark is an intimidating hitter capable of bringing down much bigger players.

Agreed - I'd love to see an extension for Clark in place before TC starts.

Glad that this is happening...

but we need a backup too. the way he plays, we need someone to back him up when he gets hurt.

My first knee-jerk reaction was "get er done!"

Obviously it all depends on how much it costs, but unless his agent is completely unreasonable then he should get an extension. He's only 29 so he certainly has some very good years ahead of him, and he's done more than enough to merit a raise.

Get 'er done!

As long as its a 3 year deal and we still resign Big Money MIller. That would only leave Reed right?

funny how when we first signed Clark off of the Redskins.. i thought " who? whyyyy are we doing this" why dont we just start Anthony Smith right! LOL stupid me....

Fact is... Clark had a breakout season last year... and dont see him slowing down...
not only did he knock McGahee back to the First Grade... but remember what he did to sneaky " cant tackle me because i fall to the ground first" Wes Welker....

just look at my pik !!!!! .... need i say more?

That would be great news. I remember when we signed Clark and some where asking " why do we keep signing these low talent cast offs". Answer? Our people know what the hell their doing. Usually!

Seems to me that even more than any other year th FO has a plan and is working hard at getting everything on that plan done. One right after the another.

It's great to be a Steelers Fan.
