Posted this on Twitter earlier, but – the Patriots hosted free agent TE Dallas Clark in Foxborough on Tuesday, according to a league source.
The former Colt, who spent nine years in Indianapolis before getting his release earlier this year, played in just 17 games over the last two seasons due to a wrist injury in 2010 and broken fibula last year. He will be 33 in June.
The Patriots obviously have Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez already at the position, and also signed former Bronco Daniel Fells earlier in the offseason.
But before anyone starts conjuring up four tight end sets, my understanding is that New England was mostly doing due diligence by having Clark come for a visit.
