Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider does not believe defensive end Frank Clark will hold out. Clark was franchise tagged in March.
He skipped the team’s voluntary workouts. However, according to Schneider, the team is ‘under the impression’ that he’ll report to the team for mandatory OTAs.
With the team re-signing quarterback Russell Wilson to a mega deal, there is speculation that the team could deal Clark, who will make $17 million in 2019. The Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets are reportedly interested in his services.
It is going to be tough for the team to keep Clark and potentially sign linebacker Bobby Wagner to a massive deal. Wagner has his contract expire following the 2019 season.
Clark was the team’s second round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. The 25-year-old Cleveland, Ohio native spent the past four seasons with the Seahawks.
If he cannot sign a new deal with the Seahawks, he will play out the 2019 season with the $17.128 million franchise tender. If he does get traded, they would have to sign him to a new contract.
Also, the Seahawks will receive a second-round draft pick for him.
This past season, Clark had 41 tackles, including 10 tackles for a loss and 27 quarterback hits. He also had 13.0 sacks, one interception, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and two pass deflections.
The 13.0 sacks were a career-best for Clark. It was the second-time in his career he had double-digit sacks, as he also had 10.0 sacs in 2016.
