Redskins safety Ryan Clark says he’s retiring, as expected

Washington Redskins safety Ryan Clark says he’s retiring from the NFL after a 13-year career as a player.

As expected, the 35-year-old old Clark is going to work as an NFL analyst for ESPN.

He started his pro career with the New York Giants, won a Super Bowl with the Pittsburgh Steelers and had two stints with the Redskins, including last season.

Clark finished with 16 interceptions in 177 games, with 152 starts.

Clark had to have his spleen removed because of a sickle-cell blood trait that became aggravated while playing at high elevation in Denver in 2007.
