Former Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark visited with the Seahawks over the weekend, according to The National Football Post.
The report also noted that Clark was not immediately signed to a contract. Afterwords, Clark tweeted that he enjoyed the visit.
The 12-year veteran has recorded more than 100 tackles in each of the last three seasons. He has also recorded at least one interception in every season since 2008.
In a long career that has been played with the New York Giants, Washington Redskins, and Steelers, Clark has recorded a total of 827 tackles and has 15 career interceptions.
He is known for his hard-hitting style and has made a name for himself making some jaw-rattling hits over the years.
Here is one hit where he rocked former-Viking and current-Seahawk Percy Harvin:
He might have made the biggest name for himself, however, when he knocked then-Raven Willis McGahee unconscious in the 2008 postseason, while giving himself a concussion:
Clark would be an interesting pickup for the Seahawks on a defense that already boasts Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor and Byron Maxwell in the secondary.
And Clark has shown respect to the Seahawks before, giving them a shout out after their Super Bowl win.
Clark has already visited with the Redskins, and has also drawn interest from the New York Jets and Baltimore Ravens.
