Clark currently wears the old model Riddell football helmet that is still very popular among many players in the league, but he has decided to make a change. He will now be wearing the Riddell Revolution football helmet, the same model that Troy Polamalu wears.
If you held a straw poll of Pittsburgh Steelers’ MVP candidates through nine games this season, there’s a good chance you’d see votes for Ben Roethlisberger, Heath Miller and Ryan Clark. In the absence of Troy Polamalu, Clark has taken over as the leader of the secondary and has played with his usual reckless abandon in collecting tackle after tackle. While much of the focus...
