Professional career[edit]

San Diego Chargers[edit]

During the Chargers' 2008 minicamps, he practiced as a right tackle. He signed a four-year contract with the team on June 30, 2008. According to the Chargers, he will "most likely battle for a reserve role along the offensive line".[1]

Clark remained on the active roster for the first nine games of the 2008 season, but was cut on November 14 to make room for safety Tra Battle.[2] He was then re-signed to the team's practice squad on November 18.[3] The following day, he was re-signed to the active roster when wide receiver Buster Davis was placed on injured reserve.[4] He was not active for any of the games during the 2008 season.[5]

Clark was waived on December 1, 2009 and was re-signed to the practice squad on December 5.

After his contract expired at season's end, Clark signed a future contract with the Chargers on January 22, 2010. However, on August 9, 2010 he retired from football to focus more on his family.
