The Ravens made it official, signing veteran tight end Dallas Clark to a one-year contract today after he completed his physical.
With Clark now being signed after reaching an agreement in principle on Sunday, the Ravens cut undrafted rookie safety Gary Walker from the roster.
Clark is expected to join his new teammates on the practice field today.
Clark was added to the roster after tight end Dennis Pitta suffered a season-ending dislocated, fractured hip with tight end Ed Dickson sidelined indefinitely with a torn right hamstring.
Clark, 34, caught 47 passes for 435 yards and five touchdowns last season for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
For his career, Clark has 474 receptions for 5,322 yards and 50 touchdowns for an average of 11.2 yards per reception. He won Super Bowl XLI with the Indianapolis Colts.
During the 2009 NFL season, Clark caught a career-high 100 passes for 1,106 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Clark is a 2003 Colts first-round draft pick from Iowa.
The 6-foot-3, 252-pounder is known for his sure hands and capability at navigating the middle of the field on short to intermediate patterns. Clark is a polished route runner who has a background with Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell, his former coach and offensive coordinator in Indianapolis.
