Chiefs rumors: Frank Clark might be coming back to K.C.
By Zach Gunter
Frank "The Shark" Clark may soon swim his way back to Kansas City. Cristian Martinez, the sports editor for the student newspaper at UMKC, reported the news earlier this week that Clark is "looking to get a deal done" with the Chiefs.
Now, he had to follow this tweet with another verifying that this news is not confirmed and is rather a leak from an unnamed source. However, this should have been obvious, as in this industry, nothing is confirmed until the moment it actually happens.
Assuming this scenario happens and Clark does reunite with the Chiefs, it would be a massive boost for the defensive line. While the 29-year-old isn't as spry as he used to be, he is a veteran presence at a position of need. The depth on the edge isn't exactly young, but those who will be seeing the most snaps are. Charles Omenihu and Mike Danna are the oldest of the four at 25-years-old. Both combined for 9.5 sacks last season. Meanwhile, George Karlaftis is entering his sophomore season and Felix Anudike-Uzomah was just drafted. Kansas City would greatly benefit from Clark's return.
While 2022 wasn't a career year for Clark, it was impactful. Recording 39 total tackles and 5 sacks in 15 games (according to ESPN), he actually had a relatively quiet season compared to when he was younger. However, no Chiefs fan can forget Clark's postseason. Only seven total tackles and 2.5 sacks doesn't seem like a lot, but they were critical in the Chiefs making—and winning—Super Bowl LVII.
Martinez did also tweet something else absolutely critical to the story.
We love Mittens.
