Former LSU football player Ryan Clark announced his retirement on ESPN's "NFL Live" on Wednesday after 13 season in the NFL.


Clark, a native from Marrero, Louisiana played at LSU from 1998-2001 under Coach Gerry DiNardo and then Nick Saban.

He was named LSU's Special Teams Player of the Year during his redshirt freshman season and lead the team in the tackles as sophomore.

Clark signed with the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2002 and spent time with Washington Redskins and the Pittsburgh Steelers.

During his time in Pittsburgh, Clark was selected to the 2011 NFL Pro Bowl and won a Super Bowl with Steelers in 2009.

I know that his kids are happy. It's tough to switch schools in the middle of every school year. They are great kids, by the way. Clark is every bit as good of a dad as you would expect.

Ryan is one of those guys who will be just as good at his second job as he was at his first; he did everything the right way while in the NFL fishbowl. Looking forward to watching him analyze games/players.

He will make a great coach if he decides that's his next step.

Ready to see that guy strap on a headset in a few years wearing the P&G. Hahaha, wish him the best. He is a true ambassador of LSU and a great commentator/analyst.

Ryan Clark is proof that the most telented guys do not always make an NFL roster, but hard workers do. He had a great career, but may have found his calling in broadcasting.
