Once one of the NFL’s premier tight ends, Dallas Clark is retiring.

Clark will formerly retire as a member of the Indianapolis Colts on Wednesday, a team in which he became a favorite target of Peyton Manning during their time together.

The 35-year-old spent the 2012 season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and joined the Baltimore Ravens for 2013. He finishes his 11 year career with 505 catches for 5,665 yards (11.2 YPR) and 53 touchdowns.

Clark’s decision to retire as a member of the Colts is similar to that of former center Jeff Saturday who signed a one day deal with the team in order to retire with them.

A press conference has been scheduled for 11 AM on Wednesday.
