Apparenlty they are still "negotiating" but his deal with ESPN/Disney expired 2 days ago.

He has already been replaced on his MMA discussion show with Daniel Cormier by the undefeated Chael Sonnen.

Ryan Clark is longer employed by ESPN as his contract with the Worldwide Leader has expired.

The former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive back discussed his contract negotiations with ESPN in a social media post earlier this week. And on Saturday, he confirmed his departure from the network.

Clark has been a prominent on-air talent for ESPN over the last three years, appearing on several shows across the network covering the NFL. His decision to not re-sign came down to a "disagreement" over his compensation.

.

His message:

quote:



All love to my brothers @fredtaylor & @channingcrowder. I appreciate their words and sincerity. It’s no longer a secret that my contract with ESPN has expired. Heck, I’m the reason it’s no longer a secret. I’m so grateful for the decade of work they allowed me to do on the world’s greatest sports platform. 
I know I had to represent in a way that reflected well on them, my community, my family, & myself. That’s all I’ve worked to do. I’ve busted my tail since getting the job because I wanted to be the best! Maybe I’m not there, but I’m dang close. Now, I’m just hoping that going forward that effort is valued! That’s what I’m fighting for.

He's pretty popular

They probably gave Ryan a more than acceptable offer but he thinks he’s worth way more cuz he knows so much and everyone loves him.

There are plenty of racists that can take his place if he doesn't get paid enough. I'm sure he's still quite oppressed.

You are worth what someone is willing to pay. If he thinks he is worth more and can get it from ESPN or elsewhere, than more power to him. If not, he'll probably take the current offer if ESPN keeps it on the table.

Watching this board, which bitches about ESPN 24/7, side with ESPN on something no one really knows about is comical.

He will be one of the highest-paid NFL analysts at ESPN.

Cool. So all the people here who don’t watch ESPN can continue “not watching” ESPN and post about their programming.
