The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could replace one veteran tight end with another, if they dump Kellen Winslow and sign Dallas Clark. The moves are expected to happen according to Monday reports.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could be replacing one veteran tight end with another one this week. Incumbent Bucs tight end Kellen Winslow told SiriusXM on Monday morning that the team was trying to trade him. Following that news, ESPN's Adam Schefter said to watch for the Bucs to "make a move" on Dallas Clark this week.

Clark worked out for the Bucs last week. The long-time Colts tight end would fit well under the leadership of new head coach Greg Schiano, whose team-centric approach is likely responsible for pushing Winslow out in Tampa Bay.
The question surrounding Clark is just how much has left to give. He turns 33 in June. Last season, Clark played in just 11 games with a neck issue in 2011. The season before that, he only played in six games. Indianapolis released Clark in March.
