The Kansas City Chiefs and Seattle Seahawks made a deal on Tuesday, as two days before the draft the Hawks dealt defensive end Frank Clark to the Chiefs for a pair of draft picks.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the deal is done, and that Clark has agreed to a five-year, $105.5 million deal that includes $63.5 million guaranteed.
The defensive end did not sign the $17.128 million franchise tag given to him by the Seahawks.
If you look at current NFL predictions, even with the deal to send Clark to the Seahawks, the Chiefs are right near the top at 8-to-1 to win the AFC.
The Chiefs came so close last season to getting the job done, as they took the New England Patriots to the limit in the AFC Title Game before falling in overtime at Arrowhead Stadium.
Many feel with current group the team has including last season’s NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs will again be right near or at the top of the AFC – even without Clark.
“I feel like I’m good. I wanted to be somewhere where I’m wanted, where I’m appreciated,” Clark told ESPN’s Josina Anderson on Tuesday.
“I thank God that K.C. came in and showed that. … In life, you just want to be shown that you are appreciated sometimes, and I feel like this was one of those things.”
Last season Clark had 14 sacks for the Hawks, and overall has 36 sacks in his four NFL seasons.
