Traded to Gang Green
The Jets agreed Thursday to trade a 2024 seventh-round draft pick to the Ravens in exchange for Clark, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Clark will officially join New York's roster next Wednesday, when the new league year begins, while Baltimore receives roughly $3.6 million in cap space. The veteran safety is an extremely versatile defender, having taken additional snaps at cornerback and linebacker when needed for the Ravens last season, racking up a career-high 101 tackles. He has a clear path to earning a significant role in defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich's scheme during the 2023 campaign.

Turns in solid 2022 campaign
Clark had 101 total tackles (61 solo, 40 assists) to go with four pass breakups and a fumble recovery in 2022.
Clark entered the year with his role somewhat in question after the Ravens brought in Marcus Williams in free agency and Kyle Hamilton in the first round of the draft. Despite that, Clark logged the fifth-most snaps among safeties in the NFL this season. Williams' injury and Hamilton's slow development led to the Ravens leaning more on Clark and he responded with his most productive season to date in terms of tackles. He was less impactful in coverage, though, as he recorded no interceptions and his pass breakup count dropped from 12 to four. Clark is under contract for one more season and carries a $6 million cap hit for 2023.
Team-high 10 tackles in loss
Clark recorded 10 tackles (six solo) and two pass defenses during Sunday's 16-13 loss to the Steelers.
Clark posted a team-high 10 stops, marking his first game of the campaign with double-digit tackles. Across 16 appearances, the sixth-year safety has totaled 98 tackles (career high), four pass defenses, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery while playing every single defensive snap for the Ravens this season.
