The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to trade franchise-tagged edge rusher Frank Clark to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The full deal:
- 26-year-old DE Frank Clark, who had 13.0 sacks last year and 32.0 in his last three years. He is currently unsigned, but under the franchise tag at $17 million.
- Seattle's third-round draft pick (No. 84).
- Kansas City's first-round draft pick (No. 29)
- Kansas City's third-round draft pick (No. 92)
- Kansas City's second-round pick in 2020.
Kansas City desperately needed an edge rusher after losing both Justin Houston (who signed with Indianapolis) and Dee Ford (San Francisco) in
free agency the offseason. Seattle, which had only four picks in this year's draft until now, desperately needed draft capital -- but now they desperately need an edge rusher. We had defensive line listed as Seattle's biggest need going into the offseason, and it's an even bigger weakness now.
UPDATE: Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Chiefs and Clark have agreed to a deal that will make him one of the highest-paid defensive players in the league.
Chiefs and Frank Clark reached agreement on a 5 yrs, $105.5 million contract - greater total than DeMarcus Lawrence, with $63.5 million guaranteed, per source.
