Seattle-Seahawks’ defensive end Frank Clark may be headed to a new team by the end of this week. There is speculation that the Seahawks are willing to give him up for a 1st round draft pick.
Seattle GM John Schneider told reporters last week that he was willing to listen to trade offers.”We are always trying to understand what the landscape is throughout the National Football League,” Schneider said. “If we didn’t, we wouldn’t be doing our job. We can’t ever have our head in the sand with anything. But we love Frank, obviously. That’s why we franchised him.”
Reportedly, the three teams that are interested in Clark are the Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets, and the Indianapolis Colts, who all need a defensive presence on the field that can be a game changer for each of these teams.
Clark is starting to become a force for the Seahawks and led the team with 13 sacks last season. Despite a good season, Clark was snubbed Pro Bowl honors and a lot of people felt like his presence on the field helped the Seahawks reach the playoffs. He had 643 snaps, 21 QB hits, and 13 sacks. Clark will be earning $17 million from the franchise tag that the Seahawks put him on.
With the 2019 NFL Draft days away, Clark is one of many household names that may be leaving their old team for a new team. The drama is unfolding, so stay tuned Thursday, April 26, 2019, for an exciting night of football.
