Default Biggs: Six teams after Ryan Clark

Biggs: Six teams after Ryan Clark
http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/...yan-Clark.html

Ryan Clark negotiated with the Pittsburgh Steelers this week to see if he could hammer out a longterm extension but that didn’t happen and the free agent is drawing pretty solid interest early in free agency.

His agent Joel Turner declined to name the teams involved but said six clubs, including the Steelers, are involved at this point. Obviously, Arizona and Chicago would be on a very short list of teams seeking safeties with Miami and the New York Giants also in the market. Washington, where Clark used to play, could also be looking for a safety.

“Everyone is gaga over Antrel Rolle,” Turner said. “Ryan is a better player. He’s got better numbers across the board.”

Turner said they are in no rush to make a deal and are seeking the right fit and the right contract. Clark is considered a savvy veteran and one personnel veteran compared him to Mike Brown from his playing days with the Bears.

Ah I don't know about that statement. Clark is an average FS at best. He is also older and has probably lost a step or two. I could see him as a Bear or a Steeler again. If he's gone for good, I say go for Earl Thomas in the first round this draft.

The Problem with Ryan's agent is that he doesn't want Ryan to get low piad, i guess the bigger the players contract the bigger the ego gets for the agent and the known...

We can take the Giants off of the list of canidates for a FS.

Add the Dolphins to the list. They also like to sign overpaid players

Ryan may very well be back in Black and Gold, as he realizes the money he is seeking just isn't there for him.

If honesty was required there probably wouldn't be any agents. Ryan needs to fire this guy that obviously doesn't have his best interests in mind. He's just out for the BIG % of his contract. Saying he's the best safety is like saying Ike is the best corner. We all know the truth that Ryan plays with a big heart and his hits most times make up for the fact that he is just slightly above average. Troy makes him look better and it showed when Troy was out last season. He struggled the whole time.

The huge contract that the Giants gave Rolle pretty much put the last nail in the coffin. Rolle is way overpaid and Clark's agent thinks that Clark is better than Rolle. They're gonna go for the biggest payday and that won't be the Steelers. Cya Ryan!

Wow this is actually my first reply as I finally got my password/ username fixed. I've been reading these threads for years now and have been a steelers fan for 30+ years ever since I was a little boy watching the Steelers with my dad when we lived in pittsburgh for a few years. I got to witness the aints, oops I mean Saints win the superbowl this year as I live in New Orleans. I was happy for them as I know how it felt when the Steelers won the superbowl last year.... Enough with the babble.

Ryan Clark is a good safety with big hit potential but he will not be worth the money he will want. With Troy he is above-average but that can be said about anybody who is paired up with Troy (when healthy). I wouldn't be suprised if he signs with Steelers West (Cardinals) as they have a lot of money freed up now with Rolle and Boldin gone.
