Baltimore Ravens agree to terms with Dallas Clark
The Baltimore Ravens have agreed to terms with veteran tight end Dallas Clark.
Earlier Sunday, the Baltimore Sun reported that the Ravens and Clark had mutual interests. With the deal official, Clark becomes the second former Indianapolis Colt to join the Ravens (Brandon Stokley).
Head coach John Harbaugh announced the signing after Sunday’s practice, according to The Baltimore Sun.
With Dennis Pitta out for the year and Ed Dickson injured with a slightly torn hamstring, Clark can come in and give Joe Flacco a reliable, proven option in the passing game. The Ravens also have Visanthe Shiancoe, but he caught just one pass for New England last year while Clark has shown he can still be productive. Last season with Tampa Bay, according to NFL.com, the 34-year-old Clark caught 47 passes for 435 yards and five touchdowns and, just two years ago, Clark caught 100 passes 1,106 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Joe Flacco will immediately look to Clark as that “security blanket” Dennis Pitta was last season and was supposed to be this season. As with Brandon Stokley, expectations shouldn’t be too high, but Clark will certainly come in and produce right away and give the Ravens a much needed reliable pass-catcher.
