Ryan Clark visited Seahawks this week

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Free agent safety Ryan Clark visited the Seahawks this week, as first reported by Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post. The 2011 Pro Bowler is a 12-year NFL veteran and has long been a respected secondary-mate with Troy Polamalu in Pittsburgh, eclipsing 100 tackles in each of the past three seasons.

Clark has previously visited with the Redskins but couldn't come to an agreement there. He started every game last year for the Steelers but would obviously be featured in a reserve or subpackage role in Seattle if he were to sign here. He could be used in big-nickel packages featuring three safeties and would obviously be an experienced veteran backup at worst. It's unclear if he'd be willing to play that type of role, though.

Seattle may be interested in the veteran safety as a hedge bet prior to the Draft and to provide competition for Deshawn Shead and Jeron Johnson, the Seahawks' two principal backup safeties.
