Dallas Clark to the Ravens?

D.Clark_

According to Aaron Wilson from the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens and tight end Dallas Clark have mutual interest per a source.

Clark is currently a free agent and is looking to resume his playing career after recording 47 receptions for 435 yards and four touchdowns as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012. If he decides to sign with the Ravens, he’ll reunite with his old coach Jim Caldwell, and offensive counterpart, wide receiver Brandon Stokley, who officially signed with the Ravens earlier this morning.

Clark does have options though as the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers are also in the market to add another tight end to their roster.

The trio were all members of the Colts from 2003-2006, winning Super Bowl XLI. Throughout Clark’s nine-year tenure in Indianapolis, Caldwell was a member of the offensive coaching staff, working as their quarterback coach until taking over as head coach in 2009.

Dallas Clark’s Career Stats:

Games: 131

Receptions: 474

Yards: 5,322

Touchdowns: 50

Update: Following Sunday’s practice at M&T Bank Stadium, head coach John Harbaugh did confirm that the Ravens and Clark had reached an agreement and he was flying into Baltimore later during the evening.

    It’s obvious that we are looking for that second TE who can work in the slot. He has always demonstrated good hands but he appears to be greatly diminished in his speed. I don’t know how a slower version of Dennis Pitta helps us. However, the greater concern is that the Ravens are probably masking a more serious injury (“slightly-torn hamstring”) of Dickson. If this is the case, then this is Ozzie’s only wise choice. Here’s my prediction for this Thursday’s game. Look for numerous 2 TE sets and Furstenberg to get a lot of chances to prove his worth. The Ravens have to find out quickly what they have and what they need. With the signing of Stockley, either Thompson or Doss are gone.

  2. Brian Tray on said:

    Hamstrings are funny and when they occur they often recur unless a substantial recovery time is allowed. Dickson may be a while and when he comes back he is supsceptible to a recurrence. So they put Furstenburg and Bajema on the practice squad and bring in Clark for a veteran backup. If Dickson goes down again they bring up Furstenburg or Bajema. At least this way they have two healthy veteran tight ends that are proven commodities.
    They simply would rather have Clark on the field than Furstenburg. Caldwell loves the two tight end sets and he wants two receiving TEs to go over the middle.

    For a guy that cant catch a cold he led the team in receptions in preseason game one and has had a decent camp thus far considering he was on his sofa 3 weeks ago.

    Ozzie still trying to fix his only bonehead move this off season and that was trading Boldin, now he’s scraping the bottom of the barrel to fix his bad.

      Boneheaded? If Boldin was still a Raven Dumervil would not be and possibly one or more of Huff, Spears and Canty.

      • Jbird on said:

        I agree totally. Hensley and others still won’t stop talking about how bad it was to get rid of Q, but without that move we’d have had no room to sign anyone! Paying him $6M was absolutely out of the question. Let’s also not forget that the 6th round pick we got from SF allowed us to trade up and draft Arthur Brown!!

    While I don’t like the pick up of two old guys it may be the only thing Ozzie has left he can do,,,,,,,,,,,I can’t think of any other options he has available to him,,,,,,,,,,,,,it’s just too bad he brought a substandard receiving corp. in for his multi-million Q-back to throw to,,,,,,,,,,,,,
    If you looked at the depth of the receivers and the proven quality of them it was very scary and now my fears have come to light , now we have two old slow guys to add to a corp. with bad hands , poor Joe……..at least he has an excuse if he has a bad year,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,unfortunately it may be a very long year as well , I hope not…………….

  6. KH on said:

    I am not sure how I feel on this move and the Stokley move but I do know about one thing, “In Ozzie We Trust”. I agree on the Boldin Move. We wanted $6mil, no way we would pay that for a mid 30 y/o WR. And like the others said already, that money has gone towards Dumervil, Canty, Huff, and Spears. I am very happy with all those pick ups. These are just 1 year contracts (Stokley and Clark) so nothing to worry about. It just sucks we do not have a solid #2 in WR yet and a our duo of TEs Pitta and Dickson. This is just a band-aid Ravens fans, sooner or later the cut will heal and the band-aid will come off and we will be back to our normal selves. If we dont repeat no worries (its a hard feat to accomplish ask anybody) but we are always ALWAYS in the hunt and a force to reckon with.
