Colts Make Clark the Highest Paid TE in NFL History


The Colts and tight end Dallas Clark have come to terms on a six-year deal according to team President Bill Polian.  The move to lock up Clark comes just one day after the team taggd him as their franchise player.  “Mr. Polian and I had engaged in ongoing conversations since the fall with the intent desire to keep Dallas with the Colts till the end of his career,” said Neil Cornrich, Clark’s agent. “It’s been close for quite a while and we just refined it.”

The deal will make Clark the highest paid tight end in NFL history.  As the franchise player, he would have made $4.55 mil this season, but the new deal will pay him quite a bit more.  He was the teams first round pick back in 2003, and this past season caught a career-high 58 passes for 618 yards and 11 TD’s.  The numbers were franchise records for tight ends.“He’s a very unique player,” Polian said. “He gives us a lot of flexibility we otherwise would not have.”
