    Ryan Clark enters his 12th season unsure what the future holds for his NFL career.

    The Pittsburgh Steelers safety is coming off another strong season, but his contract is up after 2013 and there are no active negotiations between player and team. Clark wants to finish his career in Pittsburgh, but it's unclear if he remains in the team's long-term plans as he approaches his 34th birthday.

    "I've definitely let the team know I want to continue playing there," Clark told Around The League from NFL Network studios. "I'm also very comfortable with what's happened in my career and how long I've been able to play. I'm also actively working on setting things up for when I retire. Seeing what things I like to do and hopefully have those opportunities. I wouldn't necessarily say I'm concerned, but I would like to play. If I don't, I'm pretty happy how it went."

    Clark is open to playing for another team, but he has no plans to uproot his family with a daughter entering high school. Retirement also sounded like a possibility.

    "To bounce around and try to go to all these different places and maybe play for one-year contracts here and there, that's not something I really want to do," he said.

    ...and he will if he decides to hang them up soon.

    That's something that isn't seen too often in the NFL any more. I think it's says a lot about a team and a player if it does happen. I was happy to see Hines retire a Steeler.

    He has played some good football lately, but extending a 34 year old FS isnt what they need to be doing.
