After nine seasons in Indianapolis, Dallas Clark has found his new NFL home in Tampa Bay.
Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports that Clark has signed and that the contract has been officially submitted to the league office.
The signing comes after Clark worked out for the Bucs last week, and after today’s revelation that tight end Kellen Winslow is done in Tampa Bay, with the Bucs planning to trade Winslow or, failing that, release him. Bucs head coach Greg Schiano wants a new tight end, one who can provide some veteran leadership, and in Clark he has him.
The question now is whether Clark, who will turn 33 next month, has anything left on the field: He has struggled through injuries the last two seasons and is coming off a year in which he caught just 34 passes for 352 yards. It’s highly unlikely that Clark can give the Bucs the kind of production at the tight end position that Winslow gave them last year.
