The 32-year-old Clark is currently looking for a new team as it's clear that the Colts have moved on without, just like Peyton Manning, as they drafted tight ends Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen just a few weeks ago.
This past season Clark just wasn't as effective as he's been in year's past, and most of that has to do with Curtis Painter and Dan Orlovsky throwing passes to him rather than Manning. Clark recorded 34 catches for 352 yards and just two touchdowns.
This is an interesting piece of news considering that the Patriots already have the top tight end tandem in the NFL with Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez—and not to mention that they added Daniel Fells earlier this offseason as well as signing Brad Herman out of Iowa, an undrafted free agent.
If Clark can contribute, then the Patriots would be more than welcome to bringing him aboard—just another weapon for Tom Brady to utilize as he'll already be welcoming Brandon Lloyd and Anthony Gonzalez as well as welcoming back Donte Stallworth and Jabar Gaffney.
