The Baltimore Ravens lost tight end Dennis Pitta for the season to a fractured and dislocated hip, while back up Ed Dickson suffered an injury of his own before taking over full starting duties. Now, the Ravens are looking to bolster their depth at the position by adding a trusty old veteran — former Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Dallas Clark.
From Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun and National Football Post:
There is mutual interest between veteran tight end Dallas Clark and the Ravens, according to league sources. No deal at this time

When you factor in that the team lost wide receiver Anquan Boldin in the offseason, adding Clark would be a great option.
Not only does Clark help when lined up as a tight end, despite having very little to offer in the blocking game, but he can split out wide and in the slot to contribute as a pure wide receiver. He could help the Ravens in many ways.
