According to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, Indianapolis Colts veteran free agent left tackle Le’Raven Clark is signing with the Philadelphia Eagles:
The #Eagles are signing OL Le’Raven Clark, source says. Former third-round pick of the #Colts, who served as a swing tackle in Indy, where he played under Nick Sirianni.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) May 19, 2021
The former 2016 third round pick of the Colts was one of the last holdovers of the prior regime and served as a backup swing-tackle for Indianapolis in recent seasons.
Clark appeared in 47 career games for the Colts, making 15 starts.
He made 3 starts for the Colts this past season before suffering a season-ending torn Achilles in early December. Per PFF (subscription), Clark received a +49.1 overall grade in 2020 during his limited action.
Of course, Clark will reunite with former Colts offensive coordinator, now new Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni in Philadelphia—who knows him quite well.
The writing for a potential Clark return in Indianapolis has been on the wall for a while now.
There hadn’t been much noise on the Colts being interested in re-signing him, and he visited the Buffalo Bills in early April on a free agent visit. Meanwhile, the Colts already signed a pair of veteran offensive tackles: Sam Tevi and Julie’n Davenport earlier this offseason.
From being a raw, long-armed developmental offensive tackle prospect out of Texas Tech, Clark developed into a decent backup offensive tackle at times for Indianapolis.
That being said, the Colts were ready to move on in a different direction entirely, and we wish Clark well in ‘The City of Brotherly Love’.
