Free agent tight end Dallas Clark signed with the Buccaneers, according to a report.

Tight end Dallas Clark has signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports.

The news of Clark's signing comes on the same day current Bucs tight end Kellen Winslow said he would not return to Tampa Bay this season and was likely to be traded.

Clark, who was cut by the Indianapolis Colts in March, has battled wrist and leg injuries the last two seasons. Clark played nine seasons in Indianapolis after being selected in the first round by the Colts in 2003. His best season came in 2009 when he caught 100 passes for 1,106 yards and scored 10 touchdowns.

In Tampa Bay, Clark will join a crowded depth chart at tight end. In addition to Winslow, the Bucs currently have six other tight ends on their roster. Clark will presumably battle for playing time with Luke Stocker, who started nine games as a rookie in 2011 and caught 12 passes.
