Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark told NFL AM that he’s not mad that the Ravens decided to trade wide receiver Anquan Boldin.
“I’m not upset about it at all — I think that was a very good move by the Baltimore Ravens,” Clark said with a laugh, per ProFootballTalk.com.
Clark says the Ravens will have a hard time replacing Boldin.
“If you look at the plays Anquan Boldin makes . . . you think about the plays he made to get them to that Super Bowl, I think he’s the difference-maker, he’s the guy who brings the toughness to that receiving corps, I think it’s going to be tough to replace him, both leadership-wise, as well as his play on the field,” Clark said.
I agree with Clark, I think Boldin will be the hardest player for them to replace this offseason. Signing Michael Huff and Elvis Dumervil was great after losing Ed Reed, Paul Kruger, Ray Lewis and Dannell Ellerbe on defense. But they still have to fill Boldin’s shoes on the offensive side of the ball.
