On Sunday, there was a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN that veteran tight end Dallas Clark intending to continue his NFL career and that he could have a new team within the week.

It didn’t take nearly that long as Clark was a member of the Ravens by the time the day was out. If Schefter’s batting average remains high, look for Bart Scott to be wearing a new uniform in the next few days.

Schefter reports that Scott, who was released by the Jets early in the offseason, is drawing interest from teams that can’t wait to add him to their locker room and that he intends to pick one to join this week. Scott had toe surgery just after the end of last season, which is likely part of the reason why he has remained unemployed until this point in the year.

There’s no word on which teams might be sniffing around Scott, but whoever is interested is likely looking for a player who could help their run defense on early downs because asking anything more of Scott at this point in his career isn’t going to wind up working out well.
