Colts to induct tight end Dallas Clark in Ring of Honor during 2024 season

Clark played nine seasons with the Colts from 2003-2011, winning a Super Bowl and earning a first-team AP All-Pro nod during his standout career. 


Dallas Clark will be inducted into the Colts Ring of Honor during Week 7's game against the Miami Dolphins at Lucas Oil Stadium, Colts Owner and CEO Jim Irsay announced Monday.

One of quarterback Peyton Manning's most trusted targets, Clark spent nine of his 11 seasons in the NFL with the Colts (2003-2011). Clark played a key role on the Colts' Super Bowl XLI-winning team, recording two 100-yard games in the 2006 playoffs – including a six-catch, 137-yard showing in the AFC Championship against the New England Patriots.

Clark is the Colts' all-time leader among tight ends in receptions (427) and receiving touchdowns (46), and his 4,887 yards are second.

"The Colts have had a long and historic tradition of record-breaking tight ends and receivers, and Dallas Clark stands alongside all these greats who have worn the Horseshoe," Colts Owner & CEO Jim Irsay said. "In today's game, tight ends have become so much more dynamic and important to the offensive side of the ball, and Dallas was one of the pioneers with his style of play. He was electrifying, tough and dependable on the field and a great teammate and person off the field. And he of course was a key piece in bringing Indianapolis its first world championship. I am so happy to welcome Dallas Clark into our Indianapolis Colts Ring of Honor."

The Colts selected Clark in the first round (No. 24 overall) of the 2003 NFL Draft, pairing the Iowa product with wide receivers Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne. From 2007-2009, Clark was targeted at least 100 times in each season, and he recorded double-digit touchdowns in 2007 (11) and 2009 (10).

Clark in 2009 earned Pro Bowl and first-team AP All-Pro honors, catching 100 passes on 133 targets for 1,106 yards – all of which were career highs. Clark is one of eight tight ends in NFL history to have at least 100 receptions in a season.

Clark appeared in 13 playoff games (12 starts) and totaled 64 receptions for 847 yards (13.2 yards/reception) with four touchdowns.

Clark will be the 19th member of the Colts Ring of Honor, joining Owner Robert Irsay (1996), WR Bill Brooks (1998), head coach Ted Marchibroda (2000), G/T Chris Hinton (2001), QB Jim Harbaugh (2005), "Colts Nation" (2007), head coach Tony Dungy (2010), WR Marvin Harrison (2011), RB Edgerrin James (2012), RB Eric Dickerson (2013), RB Marshall Faulk (2013), C Jeff Saturday (2015), GM Bill Polian (2016), QB Peyton Manning (2017), WR Reggie Wayne (2018), DE Dwight Freeney (2019), DE Robert Mathis (2021) and T/G Tarik Glenn (2022).
