Seattle Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark has become a frightening force. Clark brought down future Hall-of-Famer Aaron Rodgers twice on Thursday night to bring his season total to 10, matching his career high from 2016. With six more games to go on the season, Clark is riding a five-game streak in which he's recorded at least a half a sack. With Clark set to become an unrestricted free agent after the season, he's putting up an incredible year that will result in a big paycheck over the offseason. In the meantime, he's become a linchpin in Seattle's defense as they recover from the loss of the Legion of Boom and move into a new era.
Seattle Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark and his agent, Erik Burkhardt, are willing to wait as he tries to secure a long-term deal as one of the league's highest paid pass rushers, even if it means playing on the franchise tag next year. "Just to do an early deal for the sake of doing an early deal doesn't excite us, especially for a guy like Frank who's already a dominant pass-rusher in this league and is just scratching the surface of what he will be," Burkhardt said. Clark is in the final year of his rookie deal and already has 5.5 sacks through six games. His 24.5 sacks since the start of the 2016 season are tied with Terrell Suggs for 10th in the NFL. Clark has taken out a loss-of-value insurance policy to protect himself from an injury or illness this year. He has become a legitimate pass rusher and his value is rising in IDP leagues.
Seattle Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark is on a tear. Clark was all over the field in London on Sunday as he hit Oakland quarterback Derek Carr three times, notching 2.5 more sacks and forcing two fumbles. Clark has been a central part of Seattle's new-look defense that's had to fill the void left by the passing of the Legion of Boom, and he's dominating opposing lines. Clark has averaged 9.5 sacks per season over the last two years, and he's on pace to top that this year. With him at the helm on the line, Seattle's defense could go right back to being a force to be reckoned with.
