Does the new Clark deal make him more tradeable or is he untradable no matter what we do with him?

There are 50 guys on this chart. The Chiefs just gave a roster spot to #50.

Frank Clark’s already up on gun charges, now he’s going to have theft charges too.

Maybe one of those gun charges will stick and the Chiefs won’t have to pay him because he’ll be in prison.

The Chiefs owed Frank Clark $27,800,000 on the books this year, This basically splits this into two years and adds incentives. I’m interested in seeing how the new layout is structured and how much the Chiefs are going to hit this year. It may have been a good way to give themselves cap room without having to wait until June 1st to save money on Clark and the Chiefs still need a DE and clark has been good against the run and made some big plays.

I don’t love it, but I think it could have financially been a really smart money move for the Chiefs to play in Free Agency more.

I don’t get this, from Clarks side.
He is owed $27.8M this year
He signs for 2 years for $27M plus $7M incentives
Even if he gets all the incentives, that’s a bit over $6M to play another year for us

If he wouldn’t have restructured, he likely would have been cut from the team and signed on somewhere else for less. If he has a big year the Chiefs could give him another extension. If the Chiefs make some improvements at DT, he could have a better year. I don’t know. I didn’t see it coming.

The Chiefs could put Aaron Donald next to Jones and Clark would still take three steps and try to juke the tackle.

Ha…

I think it makes sense for the Chiefs. They’re basically paying him a little more to keep him for an extra year. And probably cut him next year. I doubt this is the only move the Chiefs make on the line. They know they need to pressure the QB. This gives them some room to make a move.

If they waited until June, who would be left?

It’s like he’s conceding that he would only get a 1 year minimum deal elsewhere, and on top of that play so badly that he wouldn’t get anything better the following year also.

Seems like he’s basically giving up and taking what he can.

I will get off the ledge if we add a legit pass rusher. I will never be happy about Clark being back though.\

Legitimate question, does anyone know of any examples of any Chiefs players actually saying how important Mathieu was to the defense? I hear praise for him, but it all comes from the man himself.

not a bad contract

if he gives us 5 solid games a season, we can also ramp up some rookies and trade him if it works out

This is a great move for the Kansas City Chiefs.

I’ve been busy with work and haven’t had much time to write about the Chiefs and the draft, but this changes the landscape of the team.

If he can be like he was his rookie year, the Chiefs will have a helluva a defender. Love this, the Chiefs have two solid linebackers and now a game changer in the back that is a different type of game changer than the Honey Badger was. Mixed with Sneed the Chiefs have a couple players that will help them from getting murdered on big plays. I like this move.

He is a safety only. Not a hybrid S/Slot Corner.

But he is a great safety.

This pleases me a great deal.

I’ll take it. Isn’t he only 25? $10 mil per sounds good to me for a starting safety. He and Iuan can just grow together!

I will say I’d rather have Matthieu but going younger and possibly getting a good chunk of what Matthieu did for us is a good back up plan.

32 was captain of defense backfield

HOPEFULLY juan Thornhill LEARNED from 32 to call out defense assignments & be THE DEFENSIVE BACK LEADER

If spags had his way dan Sorenson would have started all games in place of Juan

Now, they need a REAL move at EDGE. Frank Clark cannot be part of their “answer.”

Houston TexansPotential franchise tag player: None
Justin Reid is the only free agent worth paying a premium salary for the Texans (currently $17,926,742 under the cap), but the franchise is still in the midst of a long rebuild. Reid is worth keeping around and would certainly take a $12,911,000 tag. Is that worth it for Houston with so many needs on a roster that is one of the worst in the NFL? 
Until the Texans get the DeShaun Watson situation settled, the franchise tag shouldn’t even be an option.
