Three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Frank Clark is staying in the AFC West.
Per Jordan Schultz of theScore, the Denver Broncos are signing the former Kansas City Chiefs’ star to a one-year contract. ESPN’s Adam Schefter added that Clark will be able to make up to $7.5 million, with $5.5 million of the deal coming in guaranteed money.
Clark spent the last four seasons with the Chiefs, helping them to four AFC Championship Game appearances, three conference title banners and Super Bowl 54 and 57 victories. Clark came over via trade with the Seattle Seahawks in the 2019 offseason.
Kansas City released Clark earlier this offseason in a cap-saving move. He spent three months on the open market before finding his next team in the Broncos, who certainly need pass rushing help if they’re to challenge Patrick Mahomes and company in 2023.
Clark is the second notable addition on the Broncos’ defensive line this offseason. Ex-Arizona Cardinals’ standout Zach Allen was also added in the early stages of free agency, giving new head coach Sean Payton and defensive coordinator Vance Joseph (Denver’s coach in 2017 and 2018) a new weapon to build the unit around.
In four seasons with the Chiefs, Clark recorded 23.5 sacks, seven pass defenses and six forced fumbles. Clark had a knack for improving his play in the postseason, recording 10.5 sacks in 12 postseason games for the Chiefs.
