It's no surprise that the 34-year-old had been shunned on the open market after catching 47 passes for 435 yards with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012. 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.
