The Kansas City Chiefs’ defense is going to look largely different in 202 and that is because they are likely to part ways with a key defensive cornerstone.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Chiefs are expected to cut defensive end, Frank Clark, due to the sides not being able to agree on a restructured contract during the NFL Scouting Combine.
Schefter added the two sides were trying to work on a restructured deal like they did last year when Clark agreed to a pay cut to stay in Kansas City.
Clark will now be a free agent. Cutting him from the roster will save $21 million in cap space.
He will now leave Kansas City having made three Pro Bowls and three Super Bowls during his four seasons in Kansas City. In the postseason, he notched 10.5 sacks in 12 postseason games. These past playoffs he sacked Trevor Lawrence once and added 1.5 sacks on Joe Burrow in the AFC Championship Game.
The 29-year-old played in 15 games last season. He recorded 39 total tackles, eight tackles for loss, five sacks, one forced fumble, one recovery, one pass deflection, and a safety.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
