Perhaps the greatest game of Dallas Clark's career came against the New England Patriots in the 2006 AFC Championship.
Bill Belichick is aware of what Clark can do on the field -- or at least what Clark used to do.
Belichick apparently wanted to find out how Clark is looking these days.
NFL Network confirmed Friday a Boston Globe report that Clark visited the Patriots on Tuesday. It appears New England was just performing "due diligence", and at this point no deal looks imminent.
The Patriots don't have a huge need at tight end with Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez and former Denver Broncos player Daniel Fells already on the roster. There have been rumors this offseason that Clark is "done" in the league because his skill set eroded so rapidly.
