The Kansas City Chiefs have informed veteran defensive end Frank Clark that they are releasing him to free agency. While at the 2023 NFL Combine, the Chiefs and Clark’s agent Erik Burkhardt attempted to work out a reworked deal to keep him on the roster. The two sides were too far apart and now the veteran pass rusher will be a free agent this offseason. With him now entering free agency, Clark is sure to gather plenty of interest from teams for the upcoming season. He is just 29 years old and has plenty of good football ahead of him.
Chiefs and Frank Clark’s agent Erik Burkhardt were unable to find common ground on a reworked deal during several conversations at the combine and the expectation now is that Kansas City will release the 29-year-old DE who is the NFL’s third all-time leading postseason sack… https://t.co/IqjwATIWSt

This past season with the Kansas City Chiefs, Frank Clark recorded 25 solo tackles, 39 total tackles, five sacks, one pass defended, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery. Clark spent the past four seasons with the Cheifs and helped them win two Super Bowls. He was also named to three Pro Bowls with the team. Kansas City has proven that they can move on from established players and find a way to win. Replacing a major pass rushing threat like Clark will be a big test for them this offseason.
