Two seasons ago, Dallas Clark had 100 catches from Peyton Manning. Now he’s still a free agent in mid May and was passed on by Peyton Manning and the Broncos for his former backup, Jacob Tamme. Clark has been on one visit so far, to Kansas City, who might have been looking at him purely as insurance for another Tony Moeaki injury, as they already have 2 solid tight ends on the roster in Moeaki and Kevin Boss, more of a blocker.
Earlier this week, Clark visited with the Patriots, but it sounds like they were just kicking the tires on him as well. Between Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, and blocking tight end Daniel Fells, the Patriots don’t have room for another tight end unless someone gets hurt. Clark might not be on a team to start the season if things don’t change and then the 33 year old would have to decide between waiting for an injury and the phone to ring midseason, or retiring.
