Longtime Steelers free safety Ryan Clark visited Seattle this week, as first reported by the National Football Post and confirmed via numerous Tweets from Clark’s own Twitter page, which has several references to being in Seattle the last few days.
The 34-year-old Clark, a 13-year NFL veteran, had 104 tackles last season for the Steelers. He also earlier visited the Redskins but did not sign.
He has played the last eight years for the Steelers, and made it to the Pro Bowl in 2012
Among his Tweets referencing being in Seattle is one in which he says it “could happen” that he could sign with the Seahawks.
Clark has also been dabbling in work with ESPN but has indicated he wants to continue to play.
Seattle is in need of a backup free safety to Earl Thomas after Chris Maragos signed with the Eagles. Seattle re-signed Jeron Johnson as a backup at strong safety and also has DeShawn Shead, who can play both safety and cornerback.
Below is one of Clark’s Tweets referencing his Seattle visit:
The 12th man should be proud. Your city & your organization is absolutely amazing. I am thoroughly impressed. It was nice Seattle !
