Ravens HC John Harbaugh discusses the situation surrounding S Chuck Clark
The Baltimore Ravens invested heavily in their safe room in the 2022 offseason, signing Marcus Williams to a five-year, $70 million deal while selecting Kyle Hamilton with the 14th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. These two will ideally team up with Chuck Clark, Tony Jefferson II, Geno Stone and others to form an extremely deep group at their position.
Despite how the piece looks on paper at the moment, there have been rumors that Clark could potentially be unhappy and seek a move elsewhere. When Baltimore head coach John Harbaugh was asked about the situation, he explained how much he loved Clark and said safety was a big part of the team.
“Everyone’s role is what it is. That’s why, as a coach, you’re so enthusiastic about… The idea is to have as many good players as possible and to have them in the right places and in the right roles. I like the fact that we have very versatile players in the backend and at safety. So for me, Chuck [Clark] is a big part of this team, and I anticipate Chuck being here. I’m not going to worry about all the other stuff. The other stuff is the other stuff. It’s part of professional football, I understand that. But I like Chuck Clark, I like the way he plays, and I’m very happy he’s a Raven.
In an ideal world, Clark would remain a member of the Ravens and play in tandem with Hamilton and Williams. However, after a cryptic tweet and rumors of potential displeasure, it could mean the security is asking to be traded, in which case it would be best for both parties to move on. Clark is a big part of what Baltimore does on defense and would be a big loss, and it seems clear Harbaugh wants him to stay as a member of the Ravens.
