Clark is now the highest paid member of a Chiefs defense that has been dramatically overhauled over the last two months.

The Seattle Seahawks traded Frank Clark to Kansas City, according to reports Tuesday morning.

After acquiring him for a first-round pick this year and second-round pick in 2020, the Chiefs immediately made Clark the third-highest player in the National Football League by signing him to a five-year, $105.5 million extension.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the deal as well, and said the swap of picks would be for third rounders.


It was no secret that, after trading Dee Ford and releasing Justin Houston, that the Chiefs were going to be interested in any pass-rusher they could land.

Rapoport followed up with the terms of Clark's new contract, which is a five-year deal for $105.5 million, with $63.5 million guaranteed.

Clark, in his fifth season, is coming off a career year in 2018. The 25-year-old Clark has totaled 32 sacks over the past three seasons for the Seahawks.

The Chiefs own the 29th overall selection in Thursday's draft and two second-round selections.
