New Buccaneers TE Dallas Clark said that his litany of recent injuries — "the wrist, the pinched nerve, the broken leg" — is behind him. He doesn't think he's that far removed from the kind of success he had in 2009, when he had a career year with 100 receptions.
"Injuries are part of the game and I've had a couple down years with injury, but it is what it is," Clark said. "I'm not hampered by it. It's not slowing me down. I still feel I can come out and perform every day."
Clark's positivity is great, but 2009 was three seasons ago and he'll have Josh Freeman -- not Peyton Manning -- throwing him the ball in 2012.
