ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting tight end Dallas Clark could sign with an undisclosed team this week. Could it be in the AFC West?
Oakland could use a veteran tight end as it tries to find production from several inexperienced players. Oakland coach Dennis Allen has often said the Raiders would be open to a veteran at the position. Denver is solid at tight end, but he played with Peyton Manning for years in Indianapolis. Clark has ties to new San Diego general manager Tom Telesco from their Colts’ days together. Tight end depth is decent in San Diego, though. Kansas City is deep at tight end.
Tight-end needy contenders such as Baltimore and New England could be favorites to land Clark.
In other AFC West notes:
Kansas City rookie right tackle Eric Fisher was of practice Sunday with a shoulder ailment. He told the Kansas City Star he plans to play Friday against San Francisco. It was reported that Fisher had a minor hand injury after the New Orleans game Friday. Fisher, the No. 1 overall draft pick in April, looked good in the game.
