Dallas Clark Made His Mark In The Postseason

Dallas Clark Made His Mark In The Postseason

Jason Witten? Not yet. This weekend, though, he’ll crack the list of top 20 tight ends with the most postseason receiving yards.

Witten – one of the better offensive tight ends to ever hit the grid, one of only four TE’s with over 10,000 career receiving yards and a possible Hall of Famer – has only been in six playoff games in his 12-year career. Tony Romo‘s Dallas Cowboys have been up and down during the regular season and mostly down in the postseason. Witten’s got 356 yards, just four off the pace.

Troy Aikman‘s tight end, Jay Novacek, is high on the pace. He’s fifth all time.

But it’s Peyton Manning‘s Indianapolis Colts‘ tight end, Dallas Clark, at the top with nearly 850 postseason receiving yards. Nobody’s cracked 1,000…yet.
