Chuck Clark Takes Professional Approach As Always
After the Ravens signed safety Marcus Williams in free agency and drafted safety Kyle Hamilton in the first round, pundits began to speculate on safety Chuck Clark’s role next season. Clark hasn’t commented publicly on the situation, but Harbaugh said after the draft that “Chuck is a big part of this team.”
With Williams not in attendance during Wednesday’s practice, Clark took regular reps on defense and was a leader on the back end. He was still coaching up his teammates, including linebacker Patrick Queen, as he walked off the field. It’s what the Ravens expect from Clark, a studious player and defensive leader who has worn the communication helmet in previous seasons, relaying calls to teammates.
“It’s Chuck,” Harbaugh said. “He didn’t want to miss OTAs; that’s something that was important to him, and he came in here on Tuesday ready to go and in great shape and picked up right where he left off. He just walked in the building, and he was Chuck Clark – running the defense. So, it’s not surprising at all.”
