The Boston Globe reported yesterday that the New England Patriots held a workout for veteran tight end Dallas Clark on Friday. A team filled with receiving options and three highly qualified tight ends, I imagine this was nothing more than a virtual tire kicking workout so the Patriots could determine where he was physically in case the need to fill a roster position because of injury in the future.
Clark’s skill set has dropped off significantly in the past few seasons and he has been dealing with nagging injuries, only appearing in 17 games in the last two seasons. Only once in his career has Clark appeared in a full 16-games season.
If Clark had the skills to be an impact player this season, he most likely would have landed in Denver with the Broncos. Peyton Manning and Dallas Clark formed a dynamic duo together in Indianapolis and the Broncos had a need at the tight end position. Instead, the Broncos signed another former Colts tight end, the younger, Jacob Tamme.

Former New England Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson says the death of Junior Seau was ''the tip of the tipping point'' that convinced him to speak out for concussion victims.
Seau shot himself in the chest this month. Although there has been no link established between possible head injuries and his death, Johnson says he's convinced it is at least part of what...
QB Tom Brady (New England)
Tom Brady threw for 5235 yards last year on the strength of 611 passing attempts, but he’s only twice gone over 580 attempts in a season and the Patriots should have a better defense next year. I also think his 8.5 YPA from last year is unsustainable as he’s only gone over 8 twice in his career. The other time he did that was 2007, when Josh McDaniels...
Last year, the Patriots offered Wes Welker a lot of money for a slot possession receiver. This year, they franchised him and he signed the one-year tender for $9.5 million. When he received his offer a year it ago, it was for 2-years and $16 million, so when you think about it, he is getting [...]
