Dallas Clark Sounds Like An Option For The Chiefs

Two weeks ago the Kansas City Chiefs visited with free agent Dallas Clark, who has spent his career with the Indianapolis Colts. It seemed like a somewhat odd fit considering the Chiefs had Tony Moeaki returning from injury and newly signed Kevin Boss already at tight end.

But at least one NFL reporter thinks Clark ultimately ends up in Kansas City. In Monday Morning Quarterback, Peter King of SI.com writes:

If I had to make an educated guess right now, I think the leader in the clubhouse is Kansas City. Imagine if Clark, who visited the Chiefs May 1, could give Tony Moeaki a breather for 300 snaps this year, with Kevin Boss in the rotation as well. Moeaki's been injury-prone in his college and pro careers, so the Chiefs will try to find the right number of snaps for him. But a three-tight end rotation of Moeaki, Boss and Clark would be solid, if the Chiefs wouldn't be hurt too much on special teams without major contributions from the tight ends.

Key words: educated guess. That means there's probably a little more to this.

Clark has some injury question marks but I'd feel more comfortable about him potentially coming to Kansas City if he were only expected to play a part-time role, or simply adding depth. I'd have a beef with adding Clark if he were expected to be a starter but in the role he would play in KC, if the Chiefs signed him, I'd be content with that move.
