Jason La Canfora reports Clark’s extension with the Ravens is worth $16 million with $10 million guaranteed in total, $5.5 million in a signing bonus. Adam Schefter says the deal includes $15.3 million in new money.
Clark took over midseason for the Ravens as a starting safety following an injury to Tony Jefferson. He helped solidify Baltimore’s defense and propel them to the best record in the AFC.
Clark, 24, was drafted by the Ravens in the sixth round out of Virginia Tech in 2017. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $2.7 million rookie contract and was slated to make a base salary of $735,000 in 2020.
In 2019, Clark appeared in all 16 games for the Ravens and recorded 70 total tackles, one sack, two forced fumbles, one interception and nine pass defenses.
