The pros and cons and cons and cons of signing Dallas Clark

In the Super Bowl, the Giants lost Jake Ballard and Travis Beckum to ACL tears.  They’re both likely to begin the 2012 season on the PUP list.  TE is an obvious hole the Giants need to plug this offseason.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys could use a TE as well.  The extremely disappointing Martellus Bennett is a free agent and comically thinks he’s a #1 guy.  That tells me he won’t be back.  John Phillips looked like he was going to break out in 2010, but he tore his ACL and hasn’t since shown any hints that he’s going to be the productive player many thought he’d be.

With the Colts releasing their entire team today, including Dallas Clark, if you’re a Cowboys or Giants fan, the quick-twitch reaction is to picture Clark in your offense.  With that in mind, let’s review the pros and cons of adding Dallas Clark:

Pros:

  • He used to be good.
  • He’s known as a good guy, good teammate, etc etc.

Cons:

  • He’ll be 33 in June.
  • He missed 10 games in 2010.
  • He missed 5 games in 2011, and when he did play, he didn’t produce.  He had 34 catches for 352 yards and 2 TD’s.
  • His long reception over the last two seasons was 22 yards.  For comparative purposes, Jimmy Graham had 18 receptions of over 20 yards in 2011.  Rob Gronkowski had 22.
  • While his lack of production was partly the result of the Colts’ wretched QB play, that doesn’t forgive the absurdly high number of drops he had (PFF has him down for 8 in 2011).  8 drops, and only 34 catches?  That’s atrocious.
  • He’s useless as a blocker.

So let’s just say I think the cons outweigh the pros. Awesome career, not an awesome answer at TE if your team needs one.

    Some team are going to sign him as the 2nd TE. He would be smart to follow Manning for a cheap deal.
