Clark left the Redskins as a free agent following the 2005 season and went on to carve out a successful career with the Pittsburgh Steelers, winning a Super Bowl and being elected to one Pro Bowl.
However, the Steelers chose to re-sign Mike Mitchell ahead of Clark this off-season, paving the way for the Redskins to bring the 34-year-old back to the team.
Enjoyed every second of the last 8 years in Pittsburgh. Great city, amazing organizations & of course awesome fans! Thank you Steeler Nation— Ryan Clark (@Realrclark25) April 1, 2014
Clark intercepted 12 passes and twice recorded more than 100 tackles in a season during his time in Pittsburgh.
