BALTIMORE - The Ravens have agreed in principle to a contract with veteran tight end Dallas Clark, bolstering a position that has been weakened by injury this summer.
Baltimore lost top tight end Dennis Pitta to a season-ending hip injury early in training camp, and Ed Dickson, the player most being counted on to offset the loss of Pitta, is currently sidelined by a partially torn hamstring.
The 34-year old Clark has been one of the more productive tight ends in the NFL during the last decade.
He has 474 catches 5,322 yards and 50 touchdowns in 10 NFL seasons, the first nine of which he spent with the Indianapolis Colts.
His numbers have dipped in recent years, but he still had 47 catches for 435 yards and four touchdowns with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season.
Clark will be in Baltimore Monday to take a physical.
The agreement with Clark comes two weeks after the Ravens signed veteran tight end Visanthe Shiancoe.
