Tampa, FL-- The Bucs signed free agent tight end Dallas Clark, to a one-year contract, and traded tight end Kellen Winslow to Seattle for an undisclosed 2013 draft pick.
"Dallas Clark is a consummate pro and proven playmaker," said Buccaneers General Manager Mark Dominik. "He will be another asset, on and off the field, for our team. In addition to Luke Stocker's continued improvement in his ability as an every-down tight end, we feel we have both talent and depth at the tight end position."
Clark was one of the top tight ends in the NFL, for 7 seasons, earning All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors, and winning Super Bowl XLI as a member of the Indianapolis Colts.
But Clark missed most of the last 2 seasons, with a wrist injury and a broken leg. And he turns 33 years old next month.
Kellen Winslow was the Bucs' leading receiver the past 3 seasons. But because of knee problems, rarely practiced during the season. He revealed during a national radio show that Greg Schiano instructed him not to show up for Monday's OTA, because the team was trying to trade him.
