From The Fan Morning Show
PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark joined the FAN Morning Show to talk about a variety of issues surrounding the team and the NFL.
Clark is excited to hear that teammate Hines Ward will be on the cast of “Dancing with the Stars” this year. He thinks Ward has a good chance at winning because he has shown his moves at practice and in the locker room.
Currently, the Steelers are in negotiations with cornerback Ike Taylor.
Clark said, from what he knows, Taylor wants to come back to the Steelers and he should be compensated for his time with the team.
With the March 3 deadline fast approaching, Clark gives the FAN Morning Show an update on the current collective bargaining negotiations. He said there has been no talk from the Players Association about extending the deadline as they have been negotiating in good faith to secure a deal before it.
Clark responded to criticism about his previous comments on the collective bargaining negotiations. Clark said the criticism doesn’t bother him, because he and the union are looking out for more than the superstar players.
He said the lockout won’t affect him financially, but it will affect the practice squad players and those that don’t make millions of dollars a year.
