Colts Tight End Clark Agrees to Terms on New Contract

INDIANAPOLIS – On Tuesday, the Colts announced they had placed the franchise tag on tight end Dallas Clark.

A day later, an announcement came that meant the tag wasn't necessary, after all.

Clark, the team's first-round selection in the 2003 NFL Draft, agreed to terms on a new contract, the team announced Wednesday evening. The Colts had announced the evening before that they had designated him their franchise player.

Clark caught a career-high 58 passes for 618 yards and 11 touchdowns this past season. In five NFL seasons, he has caught 179 passes for 2,234 yards and 25 touchdowns.

Teams had until Thursday to place the franchise tag on an unrestricted free agent, after which they could negotiate a long-term deal until July 15.
