|When new Bucs head coach Greg Schiano decided to send a message to his teamís roster by releasing Kellen Winslow, it opened a door for former Colts tight end Dallas Clark to join the team. Unfortunately, it is doubtful that it opened a door for Clark to regain the fantasy glory that he enjoyed in the 2009 season when he topped 1,100 receiving yards and scored 10 touchdowns. With Schiano expected to install a run heavy offense, Clarkís limited blocking ability will negatively impact his playing time. Not helping matters is the presence of 2nd year player Luke Stocker, who will likely be the teamís main blocking tight end and who the Bucs feel could develop into a solid pass catcher. Clark will likely have a few solid games in 2012 but he is best used as bye week filler in most leagues.

Former Colts TE calls it quits after 11 seasons
|After 11 seasons - including his first nine in Indianapolis - and one Super Bowl title, Dallas Clark will officially call it a career Wednesday. He will become just the second player in Colts history (after C Jeff Saturday) to re-sign with the team and retire.
The Colts released Clark after the 2011 season. He played for the Buccaneers in 2012 and the Ravens in 2013, combining for 78 receptions and seven touchdowns in that span. For his career, Clark had 505 catches for 5,665 yards and 53 scores. (CBS Sports)|
FF Today's Take: In nine seasons (2003-2011) with the team, Clark set franchise records for the most career receptions (427) and receiving touchdowns (46) by a tight end, while finishing second in receiving yards (4,887). In 2009, he became the second tight end in NFL history to post 100-plus receptions and the first tight end in team history to record 1,000-plus receiving yards in a season.
