Former Colts great joins concussion lawsuit

Those younger fans who grew up only knowing Dallas Clark (and more recently Jacob Tamme) as the Indianapolis Colts Tight Ends may not be aware of the great player that preceded these two. Ken Dilger became a Colt in 1995 when Jim Harbaugh was the QB, and wore the horseshoe through 2001. Needless to say, Dilger was Peyton Manning's favorite TE during the four seasons they spent together. Ken Dilger was a great Colt who, after he was let go, signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and won a Super Bowl with them. He played with the Buccaneers through 2004, and in his final game also doubled as the team's long-snapper.

Today, Ken Dilger's name is back in the news as one of the latest former NFL players to join in a concussion-related lawsuit against the league. His name is buried in the list behind such notables as former #1 pick, Tim Couch, and another former Browns QB, Charlie Frye. If it were to list the players by their quality of play and dedication to the team, Dilger's name would have been first on the list.
