More good news – Clark back to the Steelers with a four-year deal

It appeared that after the Steelers inked safety Will Allen yesterday that would mean the end of the career in Pittsburgh for free agent safety Ryan Clark. Ah, not so fast. The Steelers, who inked three players yesterday, have now signed Clark, who comes back to the team with a four-year deal.

Hard-hitting safety Ryan Clark is heading back to Pittsburgh, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.

Clark would have been a major upgrade in the Bears secondary, but it’s believed the team showed little interest in the unrestricted free agent. Clark actually visited the Miami Dolphins the last two days before deciding to return to the Steelers. When healthy, Clark and Troy Polamalu form one of the top safety combinations in the league.

The Bears are still expected to try address the safety spot, but keep in mind it’s a very deep draft when it comes to that specific position.

So when you think about it, the Steelers big issues last season had to do with the special teams and the secondary. It seems that the four guys brought back, plus if you add in Casey Hampton and Jeff Reed, give this team a much better chance of getting back to the dance in February of 2011.

Now if they can keep their QB out of trouble.
