The Steelers have signed center Justin Hartwig to a 4-year $10 million contract according to the Post. This is almost guaranteed to be the last signing before the season and we all know that we don't negotiate during the season. My question is why does there seem to be absolutely no effort to sign Ryan Clark? Ryan is a huge huge reason our defense and Troy are as good as they are. Troy can do whatever he wants on defense because Ry Clark has his back and covers where Troy isn't. Seeing as Troy has the freedom to just use his instincts and doesn't always have an assignment on a play this is tremendously hard to do. Like the pick six in the AFC Title game? Troy felt the play going where it did, that's not where he was supposed to be. Ryan is the reason Troy is Troy. I don't think Ryan Mundy or Ty Carter can step in like Ryan Clark is playing right now. Clark has said he loves it here and does not want to move his family again. Here's to hoping that doesn't happen.
