    Default Clark signs 6-year contract with Colts

    SOURCE

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Dallas Clark signed a six-year contract with the Indianapolis Colts on Wednesday, one day after the team placed the franchise tag on him.

    Team president Bill Polian and agent Neil Cornrich would not say how much the contract was worth.

    But it is believed to make Clark one of the league's highest-paid tight ends and puts him in the Colts' expanding club of highly paid players, a list that already includes two-time league MVP Peyton Manning, Pro Bowl receivers Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne, defensive end Dwight Freeney and safety Bob Sanders.

    It also resolves the Colts' biggest question mark heading into free agency. On Wednesday, Indianapolis signed guard Ryan Lilja to a five-year deal worth about $19 million, team owner Jim Irsay said. That leaves starting guard Jake Scott and defensive end Josh Thomas as the biggest names who are still unsigned.

    So what happens with the franchise tag now? Can we use it on Scott? Anyone know?

    I think we might be able to though this deal is completely final yet.

    My guess is we can not. But supposing we could, there are no free-agents left worth the type of money a tag would command.

    Brilliant news.
    Take me out to the black, tell 'em I ain't coming back. Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.

    We already used the tag on Clark; I don't think we can use it again
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.
