Ravens fans can't imagine longtime players suiting up in the enemy's colors.

I'm sure Steelers fans feel the same.

However, it appears one rather famous Steeler that won't be back is garnering interest at some level from the Ravens organization. According to a report from The Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, the Ravens have expressed interest in free agent safety Ryan Clark.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Ravens have interest in Ryan Clark, according to a source. Fluid situation at safety. Redskins, Jets also involved with Clark</p>&mdash; Aaron Wilson (@RavensInsider) <a href="">March 17, 2014</a></blockquote>

This isn't to say the Ravens will reach a deal with Clark. But it does go to show that anything is possible at this point. The Steelers don't want to pay Clark and the Ravens need a safety. But how much is Clark worth at this stage of his career? He'll turn 35 this October and won't offer much from a long-term standpoint.

Wilson's story that he filed mentions the possibility of the Ravens bringing back James Ihedigbo, who has yet to sign a contract. Doing so would likely mean another year of an Ihedigbo/Matt Elam combination, with Elam manning the free safety spot.

Of course, that could change if the Ravens then drafted a free safety in the first round.

Decisions, decisions.
