As the Kansas City Chiefs check in on a number of veteran free agents now that the dust from the 2012 NFL Draft has settled, it's interesting to see who else is looking at the same players. In the case of tight end Dallas Clark, a familiar link to Kansas City's Scott Pioli is also working out the former Indianapolis Colt.

Clark apparently spent some time visiting with the New England Patriots on Tuesday of this week. The news is just coming out today, which means that Clark left town as a free agent. Mike Florio writes, "It could be that Chiefs G.M. Scott Pioli's former boss, Bill Belichick, simply decided that, if Pioli sees something in Clark, maybe there's something there that could help the Pats."

Clark wouldn't be used much as a traditional tight end in New England given the presence of Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski. However, he's hardly been used in that way in the past when playing alongside Peyton Manning in Indy.

The Chiefs previously spent time with Clark, and Peter King went so far as to name the Chiefs the favorites to land him. That's still a possibility but after signing Martin Rucker, it would be interesting for the Chiefs to bring in Clark as well.
