THE SEATTLE SEAHAWKS will trade their star defensive end Frank Clark to the Kansas City Chiefs, according to a report in the States.

Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Seattle will receive a first-round draft pick in this year’s draft — which begins on Thursday — and a second-round pick in 2020. The teams will also swap their third-round picks this Saturday.

The franchise-tagged Clark has agreed to a new five-year, $105.5million contract with $63.5m guaranteed, according to Schefter.

The Chiefs last month traded standout defensive end Dee Ford to the San Francisco 49ers for a second-round pick next year. 

Clark was selected by the Seahawks in the second round of the 2015 draft and was reportedly due to earn $17m on the franchise tag this season.

The 25-year-old notched a career-high 13 sacks in 2018, his most productive season to date.
