Just reading this months Steelers Digest, the draft recap edition, and they had small piece in there about Ryan Clark and him coming back from his injury last year. They were saying how he's looking good so far, played well in mini camp, and they like where he is at this point in his recovery. One thing that stood out for me was when they quoted him he said: " the victory in it has been certain guys telling me how much different the team is when I'm out there and how happy they are to see my back out there".
Now maybe you can read into that and maybe you can't but the guy was brought in from Washington a couple years and was a very good Safety then working with Sean Taylor on a defense in Washington that was very good. Just something interesting to think about in the offseason that Anthony Smith has a lot of work to do this year and with Clark seeming to get more healthy each time he steps on the field, this is a pivotal time for both. Perhaps the team has lost some confidence in Smith to get the job done?
