The same question comes to mind for this upcoming season.
The soon to be 32 year old TE, Desmond Clark, played more of a back-up role to up and coming star TE Greg Olsen.
Desmond caught41 passes for 367 yards and only one touchdown. Also, he only averaged nine yards per catch, which was his worst since his rookie season in 1999.
From 2006-2008 (2006-2007 season and 2007-2008 season), Desmond combined for almost 90 receptions, 1100 + yards and ten touchdowns.
You have to wonder if he can get back to that level or will he simply just be a backup TE for the rest of his career.
I hope to see a much improved Desmond Clark this season.
I know he can put up some big numbers and with the addition of franchise QB Jay Cutler, it can only help.
So with that in mind, I don’t think this will be Desmond Clark’s last season with the Bears.
I think the Bears will get the most out of Desmond this season and him and Greg Olsen will be the best tight end tandem in the NFC.
