Dolphins Interview an Enforcer at Safety

7 Mar

Ex-Steeler Ryan Clark is visiting the Dolphins this evening, as the home team is hoping to replace Gibril Wilson with someone less awful at playing this sport. Clark is a big time hitter, who, paired with Dansby and Mike Nolan, would help forge an identity for this middle of the road Dolphin defense.

Clark is a tough some of a gun who loses a major organ every other week, yet continues to play hard-nosed football. Okay, slight exaggeration, but Clark has lost both his spleen and gall bladder to a blood disorder without any drop-off in play.

Clark would be a great addition. He’s such a dangerous player that even his platelets are shaped like sickles. That’s bad-ass.

    Also, Ryan Clark has already helped the Dolphins, whether we sign him or not. His interception sealed our week 17 loss to the Steelers. Neither one of us made the playoffs, but the win dropped Pittsburgh to 18th in the first round, leaving us with the 12th pick. Yay, Ryan!

    Here’s the thing about Ryan Clark – a tough, tremendous hitter… when he doesn’t whiff completely because he was going for a highlight reel hit. This bad habit became much more apparent last season when Polamalu was out and nobody else in the secondary could catch the guy who just juked Clark and took off down the field.

    Just sayin’.

      Joelsburg,

      Thanks so much for the Steeler fan take on Clark. Very insightful.

      Re: the Polamalu thang… I will say that Ryan would be lining up opposite Yeremiah Bell, a Pro Bowl safety who has led Miami in tackles two years running. He’s a smart player, and a finisher. I could see his skill set matching up well with Clark’s.

      Secondly, Clark would be replacing a huge disappointment in Gibril Wilson, who was paid a truckoad of dough, and played like sea mammal dung for almost the entire season. Clark’s contract shouldn’t be nearly as scary, which would leave us some flexibility to fill other holes (WR, NT).
