Stew Blake over at Stampeded Blue tackles the tough question of Dallas Clark’s future in Indianapolis. While he knows that players are evaluated essentially on value alone he also believes Clark has earned the right to retire a Colt:
But did he make up for his missed time with stellar production? Not exactly. Clark’s 2011 numbers totaled 34 receptions, 352 yards, and 2 touchdowns. And for the sake of comparison, his 2010 numbers were almost identical even though he missed five more games.
Clark is not only a valuable asset to this team, on and off the field, but I think we’d all like to give #44 the opportunity to get fully healthy and retire a Colt.
He’s earned, as much.
So let me ask you guys: should the Colts retain Jacob Tamme, Dallas Clark or do something entirely different?
