Ravens Continue Busy Day, Reach Agreement In Principal With Dallas Clark
The Ravens busy day continues as they try to upgrade the offense, decimated by injuries and riddled by inconsistencies by signing Dallas Clark to a deal confirmed by head coach John Harbaugh and reported by ESPN NFL Insider, Adam Schefter.
The move to bring in the veteran tight end reunites Clark with offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell, with whom he played under while Caldwell was with the Indianapolis Colts from 2003-2011.
Clark, 34, the former first round pick of the Colts spent last season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, catching 47 passes for 435 yards and four touchdowns.
Harbaugh told the media Clark will take his physical on Monday morning and is en route to Baltimore.
He certainly isn’t the same Dallas Clark who averaged seven touchdowns per season from 2004 to 2009, but has great hands and the hope is that he can make plays on third down situations for quarterback Joe Flacco where a tight end like Billy Bajema will be used primarily for blocking purposes. Clark may not be his prime self that played with Peyton Manning for multiple years, but he still holds value with his ability to block solidly.
