He’s worked on Pittsburgh TV and radio and seems ready to trade in his helmet for a microphone when his playing days are over. According to SI.com, Clark saw ESPN senior coordinating producer Seth Markman at the Super Bowl and asked if he could intern.

Ryan Clark says you have to be physical with RG3

Steelers safety Ryan Clark said that when they played the Redskins last season, they realized that being physical with quarterback Robert Griffin III would make him uncomfortable and help them win the game. “Our goal was to be physical with him at any opportunity we had, and I think it affected his play,” Clark said, per ProFootballTalk.com. It seems like being physical with...

Ryan Clark is a Perfect Example of the Today’s Athlete

I’m just going to go ahead and get this out of the way. I’m old school. I’ve had my face mask grabbed by coaches. I’ve done suicides on a basketball court to the point of vomiting and I also learned valuable lessons about being a teammate, a leader and putting things other than myself first. Obviously this is the reason I struggle so much with the majority of today’s athletes...

Ryan Clark: Brady is the 'greatest living American'

Ryan Clark said earlier this week that Tom Brady "sees ghosts" when he's under pressure from an opposing team in a given game.But according to Clark, even a clairvoyant (the newest word in my vocabulary) can still be the best in the business.

Steelers Safety Ryan Clark throws stones from glass house at Brady, Patriots

Maybe Ryan Clark will be proven right. It is a difficult task to replace the production Wes Welker has given the New England Patriots over the past six seasons. Danny Amendola may struggle to replace that production and maybe Tom Brady does feel a phantom blitz every now and then, but, the Steelers aren't exactly dealing from a position of strength at WR or otherwise, and Clark...
