Ryan Clark on Sean Taylor, Troy Polamalu, Steelers Super Bowl
Ryan Clark came a long way from undrafted free agent to Super Bowl Champ to ESPN analyst. After LSU, he went to the Giants, then Washington, where Ryan played alongside the legendary Sean Taylor. He talks about Taylor's fearlessness at training camp and his incredible trash-talk, plus his private persona and the unwarranted media storm that came after his death.
Then, Ryan talks about overcoming sickle cell, and shares an absolutely terrifying story about a spleen injury in Denver. (It gets a bit intense around the 15:00 mark.)
Next, Trey and Ryan reminisce about the start of Ryan's media career, which all started with a tweet.
As if playing with Sean Taylor weren't enough, Ryan left Washington to play with Troy Polamalu in Pittsburgh, where he got to see #43's uncanny anticipation up close. Plus, he got to add his stamp to the greatest rivalry in the NFL this century: Ravens-Steelers, including what he describes as the biggest play of his career.
