​The ​Kansas City Chiefs must've saved a boat load of money by shipping Dee Ford to the San Francisco 49ers because they just gave ​Frank Clark a HUGE deal.


​After trading for the 25-year-old edge rusher from Seattle, the Chiefs quickly locked Clark up long term. Per Adam Schefter, the deal is for five years and is worth $105.5 million total with $63.5 million guaranteed.

The Chiefs not only signed Clark to a massive deal, they also paid a pretty penny to get him from the Seahawks. Kansas City sent Seattle a 2019 first-round pick, a 2020 second-round pick and a swap of third-round picks in 2019.

That's a lot to give up for someone with as small a sample size as Clark. He certainly has the potential to be a perennial Pro Bowler, but usually a player has to make multiple pro bowls and start 16 games in a season more than once to get this type of deal.


After failing to re-sign Dee Ford and shipping him to San Fran, the Chiefs were in need of another pass rusher. They may have had to give up a king's ransom to get him, but they believe they found Ford's replacement in Frank Clark.
