Pittsburgh Steelers FS Ryan Clark said players, including his own teammates, smoke marijuana as a way to relieve stress and deal with pain. "I know guys on my team who smoke," Clark said. "And it's not a situation where you think, 'Oh, these are guys trying to be cool.' These are guys who want to do it recreationally.
"A lot of it is stress relief. A lot of it is pain and medication. Guys feel like, 'If I can do this, it keeps me away from maybe Vicodin, it keeps me away from pain prescription drugs and things that guys get addicted to.' Guys look at this as a more natural way to heal themselves, to stress relieve and also to medicate themselves for pain. Guys are still going to do it."

When you get Tom Brady doing that, the whole New England Patriots mystique goes away."

Pittsburgh Steelers FS Ryan Clark said Monday, Feb. 18, that the anonymous teammate who ripped LB LaMarr Woodley's offseason regimen should have kept the comments in-house. "My biggest problem with that is not LaMarr, or is not someone's feelings about LaMarr," Clark said. "My problem is now it's public ... We all have arguments with our brothers, sisters, cousins, but that stays in-house. What you talk about then stays there and it doesn't get out to the public. So that is the problem ... That shows that this team that is normally close, you had the Joey Porters, the Alan Fanecas, just down the line, leader after leader, this team was close-knit. It shows there is a fracture in that. I think that is the most disappointing thing about that coming out."
