It sounds like safety Ryan Clark finally got a contract offer, but it wasn’t what he hoped for.
Clark and the Steelers failed to come to a contract agreement Thursday, meaning he’ll hit unrestricted free agency. Pittsburgh identified three offseason priorities, and Clark is the only one that could still leave town.
Casey Hampton signed a long-term deal, and kicker Jeff Reed is the team’s franchise player. Clark will enter a safety market that could be inflated by Antrel Rolle’s deal. Roy Williams, last with the Bengals, is also available.
