After 13 seasons in the NFL, veteran safety Ryan Clark announced Wednesday on ESPN Live that he is retiring from football.
Clark, who entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of LSU with the New York Giants in 2002, played eight seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers after spending the 2004 and 2005 seasons with the Washington Redskins.
Clark said Wednesday that he will retire as a Steeler.
Clark played his final season in the league with the Redskins after the Steelers chose not to re-sign him last offseason.
Clark won one Super Bowl with the Steelers and played in the 2011 Pro Bowl after fellow Steelers safety Troy Polamalu backed out of the game due to an injury.
During his career, Clark registered 929 total tackles and 16 interceptions.
Clark figures to work for ESPN now as an analyst and he figures to be a great one as he’s never been shy about giving his opinion on all topics.
