Clark confirmed the news, himself, via his Twitter account on Saturday.
The 12th man should be proud. Your city & your organization is absolutely amazing. I am thoroughly impressed. It was nice Seattle !

The Redskins, Jets and Ravens all also shown interest in Clark in the past few weeks, but there really hasn’t been a lot of momentum regarding an agreement.
Clark, 34, has said that he intends to continue his career in the NFL next season, despite speculation that he could call it career.
He has only missed one game in the past three years and totaled 104 tackles, two interceptions and a fumble recovery for the Steelers in 2013.
Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 45 safety in league last year.
- Clark’s agent added that he also has interest from Ravens and Jets as well.
Mike Jones of the Washington Post, citing a person with knowledge of the situation, reported earlier in the day that Clark’s asking price is beyond what the Redskins are willing to pay for him at this point in his career.
However, Jones mentions that as of Saturday night, there hasn’t been any indication that the team has engaged in serious discussions with Meriweather.
The Panthers have been mentioned as a potential option for Clark as well, so we’ll have to see if they are able to come closer to meeting his asking price now that they have lost Mike Mitchell to the Steelers.
Clark recently visited with the Redskins, but hasn’t found too much interest beyond that.
- Jones adds that the both sides are expected to continue talking in the coming days.
