Clark is a former Indianapolis Colt -- after nine years in Indy, Clark parted ways with the Colts in March when the team began a firesale after the departure of Peyton Manning.

Clark had 34 catches for 352 yards and two touchdowns for the Colts last season. The Buccaneers are reportedly working on a trade to unload their current tight end, Kellen Winslow.
