Dallas Clark Talks About Signing With Buccaneers

Tight end Dallas Clark took the field for OTAs on Tuesday after signing a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday. While he was on the field, he had an opportunity to field some questions from the Tampa Bay media about his new team.

When asked if he had put his time with the Indianapolis Colts behind him when he signed with Tampa Bay, the veteran joked a bit about it.

No, it was really over when they told me 'You're no longer a Colt' that's pretty much when it ended.

Clark has seen his receiving numbers dip since 2009, when he caught 100 passes for 1,106 yards and 10 touchdowns. But a veteran presence like his can be indispensable with a young quarterback at the helm.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sign TE Dallas Clark

As expected, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have signed free agent tight end Dallas Clark, according to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com. The addition of Clark comes on the same day incumbent tight end Kellen Winslow revealed that the team will attempt to trade him.

Clark was released by the Colts in March, as that team's new leadership purged aging veterans. A few teams have shown some interest since then, including the Patriots. The Buccaneers worked him out recently.

Details of Clark's contract are still unknown. At 33, Clark may be limited in his contributions. He missed five games last season and a 10 the year before that with various ailments.

Winslow told SiriusXM on Monday morning that new head coach Greg Schiano told him that he was no longer in the plans for the team. Tampa's efforts to trade Winslow and his $3.3 million salary may fall short as interested teams opt to wait for the Bucs to release him.

The reaction over at Bucs Nation, SB Nation's Buccaneers blog, was one of disappointment.

Winslow looked slow and limited last season, but he still looked better than Clark did. Will Clark at least bring veteran leadership then? As overblown as that term is, I don't see how it would apply in this case: Clark's leadership didn't exactly help the Colts last season, as their only wins came with him out of the lineup. There's one positive, though: at least the last time Dallas came to Tampa the game sold out.

Kellen Winslow Trade Rumors: Tight End Has No Preferred Destination, According To Report

In the wake of the news that Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking to trade tight end Kellen Winslow, the next logical question is where does he want to go? According to a post by Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the tight end has no preferred destination to where he will be traded.

Winslow has said that he would prefer to keep his current contract. He has a non-guaranteed base salaries over the next three seasons of $3.3 million, $4.5 million and $5.5 million respectively.

Winslow should be able to generate some interest in him given that many teams are attempting to emulate the New England Patriots' style of using a pair of pass-catching tight ends. However, he may have to lower his expectations on salary to be traded.

Buccaneers Work Out TE Dallas Clark, According To Report

In the aftermatch of Kellen Winslow's SiriusXM interview Monday morning, ESPN is reporting that former Indianapolis Colts tight end Dallas Clark has been working out for the Buccaneers, adding fuel to the fire that Winslow is on his way out of Tampa Bay.

The Colts were quick to release Clark on March 9 as they purged the team of veterans and aging players after the departure of Peyton Manning. Clark, the 24th overall pick in 2003, spent nine years with the Colts and will turn 33 next month. During his tenure in Indianapolis, he notched 46 touchdowns and 427 receptions for 4,887 yards. His production was limited in 2010 and 2011 following wrist injuries. Notably, Clark is only the second tight end in league history to have more than 100 receptions in one season.

Dallas Clark has also visited the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs, according to other reports.
