Ryan Clark says he owes being a World Champion to Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, but it’s time to hang it up.

Talking on “Get Up” Friday morning, the former Steelers safety said, “I owe my Super Bowl ring to Ben Roethlisberger, with all that being said, time is up, it’s time to move on, it’s time to see what else you have in that locker room,” said Clark.

Clark adds that the reason he was able to comeback is because Coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Kevin Colbert thought he gave them the best chance to win another Super Bowl.

“As long as he doesn’t hurt the team, I was going to ride with that,” said Clark. “Big Ben is hurting this team now.”

Clark says he’s hurting players like Chase Claypool, Diontae Johnson, Najee Harris and the entire offense.

But in the QB room after Roethlisberger, the Steelers have Mason Rudolph and Dwayne Haskins as their only other options.

“If you don’t have something better in Mason Rudolph, if you don’t have something better in Dwayne Haskins, then that’s your fault Pittsburgh Steelers, that’s your fault for starting this season with the quarterback room looking the way it is,” said Clark.

At this point, Clark says Roethlisberger can’t get you to a Super Bowl. “It’s time for Big Ben to take a seat.”
