Being as the Pittsburgh Steelers figure to be without Heath Miller and Matt Spaeth until at least the seventh week of the season, you would have to think that Pittsburgh could possibly be a landing spot for the veteran tight end.
Clark, 34, played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season and caught 47 passes for 435 yards and 4 touchdowns. He\’s not the run blocker that he once was, but at this point of the season he might be the best available on the market and he should come relatively cheap.
As the Steelers head into their second week of the preseason, David Paulson and Michael Palmer are the only healthy tight ends that they currently have on their roster with regular season experience. We will have to wait and see if Clark becomes the third.
If not the Steelers, maybe it will be the Baltimore Ravens.
UPDATE: According to Darin Gantt on Pro Football Talk, Clark and the Ravens have a mutual interest in one another.
UPDATE OF THE UPDATE: Clark has signed with the Ravens.
