Chiefs trade for Clark, give him $105-million contract
The Kansas City Chiefs acquired pass rusher Frank Clark from the Seattle Seahawks for a package of picks Tuesday, then quickly agreed to a $105-million, five-year contract, as they continue to overhaul their much-maligned defense.
The Chiefs sent the No. 29 overall pick in this year’s draft and a second-round pick in 2020 to Seattle. The trade also includes a swap of third-round picks in this year’s draft.
Last year, Patrick Mahomes took over at quarterback and had an MVP season as a first-time starter, leading Kansas City to a third straight AFC West title and the conference championship game.
Running back Jonathan Stewart, who spent last season with the New York Giants, signed a one-day contract with the Carolina Panthers to announce his retirement from the NFL. Stewart spent 10 seasons with the Panthers and is the franchise’s career leading rusher with 7,318 yards.
