Pittsburgh Steelers unrestricted safety Ryan Clark has yet to find a new home for the 2014 season, but at least his phone is ringing and that’s always a good sign for a player this early on in free agency.
After reportedly already drawing some level of interest from the Washington Redskins and Carolina Panthers, Mike Jones of The Washington Post is reporting the Minnesota Vikings as being another team that has recently inquired about the 34-year-old safety.
In a Monday morning report, Jones says a person with knowledge of the situation told him that Clark’s current asking price “exceeds the amount that Washington officials wanted to pay” for the longtime Steelers safety. Clark’s agent, Joel Turner, however, hints that Washington could eventually wind up being the landing spot for his client.
“We’re still in the process,” Turner said, according to Jones.
Clark spent two seasons with the Redskins playing alongside the late Sean Taylor prior to being signed by the Steelers in 2006.
