Ryan Clark: Opposing player told me to hit him high and he would pay the fine

As the NFL continues to discourage players from hitting one another in the neck and head area,  the catch 22 of the issue is that players are being encouraged to hit low, which can lead to serious injuries like a torn ACL.

Free agent safety Ryan Clark told ESPN’s 1st Take that during last season with the Steelers, an opposing player told him to hit him high rather then low and that he would pay the fine for him.

“I’ll be honest I’ve had players in the beginning of games,’ Hey RC if you got a shot hit me up high.  If you get fined, I’ll pay it,'” said Clark.
