The Ravens' addition of tight end Dallas Clark raises the stakes for former Morgan State tight end Visanthe Shiancoe. Since Clark only started practicing Tuesday and is regarded as extremely unlikely to play at all Thursday, this marks an opportunity for Shiancoe. Shiancoe displayed some signs of rust and inconsistent hands a week ago despite catching three passes for 27 yards. With the Ravens expected to feature Clark in the third preseason game against the Carolina Panthers, Shiancoe needs to make a lasting impression on the coaching staff before that happens. This shapes up as a big night for him.
