INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Beloved former Indianapolis Colts tight end Dallas Clark will retire as a member of the team.

Clark played with the Colts from the time he was drafted in 2003 until he was released in 2012. He had short stints with two other NFL franchises since 2012.

Clark was widely loved by Colts fans and follows in the footsteps of Jeff Saturday, who left the Colts for a brief time before retiring as a member of the Colts.

The team will have a news conference at 11 a.m. Wednesday to retire Clark as a member of the Colts.
