In an effort to solidify some much-needed help in the receiving game after losing Dennis Pitta for the season, the Baltimore Ravens have added tight end Dallas Clark and receiver Brandon Stokley to the roster
Clark made a name for himself as one of the most productive tight ends in NFL history during his tenure with the Indianapolis Colts, where he developed quite the rapport with quarterback Peyton Manning. Now, Clark comes to another Super Bowl winning quarterback in Joe Flacco, where the two will try to develop a successful chemistry.
Clark’s numbers with Tampa Bay last season weren’t quite at the level of production that he saw with the Colts. But catching a ball from Josh Freeman is a bit different than Manning. Clark is also getting older. At 34 years of age, he is certainly entering the twilight years of his NFL career.

Stokley comes in to help out the receivers, who lost plenty of production when Anquan Boldin departed. The veteran brings in 14 years of NFL experience, in a coming home of sorts. Stokely was actually drafted in the fourth round by Baltimore back in 1999. Head coach Jim Harbaugh hopes that Stokley’s experience can help out a younger receiving unit that the Ravens will have this season, as they embark on trying to repeat as Super Bowl champions.
Stokley played for Denver last season, where he had 45 receptions for 544 yards and five touchdowns.
