Ryan Clark talking to Redskins, has had some interest from Ravens and Jets

Safety Ryan Clark visited the Redskins and left without a contract, but that doesn’t mean the door to a spot on the roster is permanently shut for the longtime Steeler.

Clark said Monday that he is still talking with Washington about a second tour of duty with the team. Mike Jones of the Washington Post reported over the weekend that Clark’s asking price was too high for the team. Like any good salesman, he’s making sure that the Redskins know that there are other interested parties poised to pounce in the event they don’t seal the deal.

“We’re just dealing right now,” Clark said, via Tom Pelissero of USA Today. “We’ve got some interest from the Ravens, the Jets. We’re actually in negotiations with Washington as we speak. So, we’ll see how it goes.”

Both the Ravens and Jets could have use for help at safety, but it’s hard to gauge their level of interest in Clark filling that need since there haven’t been visits or advanced conversations at this point. The Redskins may be banking on that interest not being high enough to trump their offer for a safety who will turn 35 during the season.

    PLEASE let the Jets sign him. I want to see the Patriots light up this loudmouth twice a season!

    Bring him and Brandon “the Predator” Meriweather back!!! Train the young safeties how to KO running backs!! HTTR!

    How does Clark’s health in relation to high altitudes play into teams not wanting to sign?

    What is with these Steelers players listening to offers and visiting teams?

  5. qdog112 says: Mar 17, 2014 5:30 PM

    Whoever gets him, gets a primetime citizen, a lockerroom leader and a proven winner. Ryan Clark is who all players should grow up to be.

    Gook luck sir!!!

    No Steelers allowed to play for the Ravens.

    And he is a true Steeler, not some 3rd string special teams guy.

    No thank you.

    funny. you never told rod woodson that!!!!!

    The Raven fan said Rod who? Too young to know the great Rod Woodson.

    Why isn’t Denver talking to him.

    Thanks for the years of great play Ryan. Good luck to you!

    Jets…I think every agent puts their name in the mix to try to generate leverage…The Jets SHOULD sign him, which means they won’t…

    Rather have Carnell Lake back if we’re gonna grab washed up Pittsburgh dbacks.

  14. Nofoolnodrool says: Mar 17, 2014 6:11 PM

    How funny would be for the Raven trolls to have to cheer for a Steeler. Priceless…..

  15. dlr4skins says: Mar 17, 2014 6:21 PM

    You really want to play for the Jets?

    I heard you can’t even buy a large soda in that town.

    How sad was it that a Steelers Hall of Famer had to come to Baltimore in order to become a Champion. Pittsburgh failed you Rod Woodson! You’re Welcome for your Trophy…

    *Pittsburgh’s Super Bowls are tainted with Horse Steroids and Referee paychecks.

  17. scoobies05 says: Mar 17, 2014 6:49 PM

    that would be an interesting signing to say the least

    Does Ray Lewis deer antler spray ring a bell ….the sound of the echo is deafening.

    I cannot wait for him to sign with the Ravens so that Raven fans can say how smart Ozzie is for making the deal whereas if he stayed with the Steelers, these same people would say that he is dirty, old and slow.

    The Ravens have a swiss cheese oline. Three big holes LG, RT and C. The draft wont help you.

    Three arrests in 20+ days. World record.

    Signed a 35 yr old wr and you talk about the steelers age? #desperate

    Ozzie is helping the Steelers. It’s so clear we’re going to win this division. Seriously, not joking right now.

    Mike Evans, Dennard or Gilbert. One of those guys is going to fall to us. While the Ravens reach for an olineman, we’ll draft a stud.

    … and… the decline continues.

  22. ravensdominate says: Mar 18, 2014 10:29 AM

    Rod won a Super Bowl with us. Not with you. And no. We don’t need Ryan Clark.

  23. guitarkevin says: Mar 18, 2014 10:46 AM

    Pittsburgh fans should be more worried about who will actually be on the field for them this year, not worrying about where their old players go.

  24. scoobies05 says: Mar 18, 2014 12:34 PM

    ravens don’t reach for draft picks. they take best player on the board. this off season they have made numerous key signings while the Steelers have done very little. ravens typically build through the draft and fill in with free agents as needed. we locked up Steve Smith to a very cap friendly deal that won’t even cost a draft pick since he got cut. so keep living in dream world. I expect the Ravens and Steelers to be there at the end as always. but to say the Ravens are done and Ozzie is helping the Steelers is laughable

  25. scoobies05 says: Mar 18, 2014 4:36 PM

    if the ravens were in decline, at least they have reached the pinnacle…unlike the bengals who cant even win a playoff game

  26. scoobies05 says: Mar 18, 2014 4:37 PM

    as far as drafting studs. name any you have drafted in the last 3 years
