Default Danny Clark and James Reed?

Danny Clark, LB - anyone know whats up with him?
He had 129 and 113 tackles in 04 and 05, but only 29 last year. Only 3 sacks in the past 3 years. 8 year veteran who will turn 30 in May.

James Reed, DT - 37 tackles and 1 sack last year, 65 and 2 the year before. Already turned 30

Anyone seen either of these guys play and/or know something about them besides stats from nfl.com?

Both would seem to be depth moves. Probably not huge impact players but guys who can contribute for a decent price.

Danny Clark was with the Saints last season. A lot of Saints fans wanted him to start at MLB over Mark Simoneau.

James Reed "played" for the Chiefs last season, if you want to call it that.

Indeed. Clark is a great special teams player, and servicable at LB. He is great vs. the run but lacks the speed and fluid hips to play the pass very well. The Saints used him on ST and in goal line situations and he excelled every chance he got.

He's a pretty big fella who hits like a ton of bricks, but never really got an adequate chance to show what he was capable of for us. This was partly due to a purported lack of coverage skills (and was evident a few times in goal line situation when he let the TE burn him) and perhaps moreso due to the fact that the staff liked Simoneau's intelligence and leadership in the middle of the defense. I think they sacrificed some potential playmaking ability and heavy hitting in Clark for the unspectacular stability of Simoneau.

If you guys were to pick him up, I doubt he would be more than quality depth and a good special teamer, especially seeing who's manning the middle for you now and noting that he wouldn't likely be a candidate to move to an OLB position due to the afforementioned coverage concerns.

I would have liked to have seen more of what he is capable of as he had some good years in Oakland, but we were ultimately paying him $2 million to come in on goal line situations and play special teams. I hope he does well somewhere, though.
