Tampa Bay Buccaneers sign TE Dallas Clark

After trading Kellen Winslow for a 7th round pick to the Seahawks, the Buccaneers signed Dallas Clark to play the role they thought Kellen Winslow was too expensive to play. They will be using Clark as solely a pass catcher behind new starter Luke Stocker, a 2011 4th round pick. However, they will be paying Clark 2.7 million this season. Winslow would have only made 3.3 million. Is Kellen Winslow only .6 million dollars better than Dallas Clark? Apparently the Buccaneers think so.

Winslow is one of the toughest players in the league, hasn’t missed a game in 3 years, and has been one of the league’s most productive tight ends over that time period. Clark looked done last season and couldn’t find a taker until mid-May. I don’t get this sequence of moves at all by the Buccaneers’ new regime.
