Dallas Clark is calling it a career, and returning to Indianapolis to make his retirement official.

The Colts announced today that Clark will officially retire as a member of the team, with a formal press conference set for Wednesday.

The 35-year-old Clark was the Colts’ first-round draft pick in 2003, and he played nine seasons for the team. He’s the all-time leader in Colts history for catches and touchdowns by a tight end.

After the Colts cut him in March of 2012, Clark played one season in Tampa Bay and one season in Baltimore. He was effective at times last season, catching 31 passes for 343 yards and three touchdowns for the Ravens, but he said this offseason that he wasn’t sure if he could find the right situation this year. It appears that he hasn’t found that situation, and now he’ll enjoy retirement.
