With Playoff Expansion Looming, Ryan Clark Is Concerned About Player Benefits

Former Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark may have changed uniforms during the offseason, but his outspokenness when it comes to the league and NFLPA matters hasn’t changed at all.

The NFL owners meetings are currently underway in Atlanta, GA and one of the main topics of discussion on the agenda this week is playoff expansion, as several of the owners are reportedly pushing for two additional teams to be added as early as this season.

Clark, who was elected to the NFLPA’s Executive Committee back in March, took to Twitter on Monday to voice his opinion on the topic.

One NFL owner recently told Kimberly Jones of the NFL Network, that he believes it’s a matter of not if, but when, the playoffs are expanded from 12 to 14 teams. Jones goes on to add that while a scheduled vote is not on the current agenda, that owners can decide to take a vote, however, while their in the room. If a vote was to occur and pass, Jones says it still will need the approval of the player’s union.

You can bet that Clark, who signed with the Washington Redskins this offseason, will continue to be vocal when it comes to playoff expansion and player’s benefits, and that he’ll be watching what transpires this week in Atlanta very closely.
