TE Dallas Clark and the Ravens agreed in principle to a deal Sunday, the team announced.
Clark always has been more slot receiver than traditional tight end. Now that he's no longer capable of consistently getting open down the seam, his value is limited.
Clark is now 34 and is coming off 47-catch season in Tampa Bay where he finished with 435 yards. With TEs Dennis Pitta lost for the season and Ed Dickson battling a hamstring injury, the Ravens are desperate for someone who can play the position and catch the ball. As the story pointed out, he struggles to get open, but the hope is he regains some fire under OC Jim Caldwell. There are going to be better fantasy options than Clark and this move could also mean Dickson's value takes a dip.
