So, KC gets Frank Clark PLUS his HUGE salary...and they have to give up a 1st, and a 2nd next year?
Um, maybe I'm just not fully informed about all the details...but that looks terrible for KC, IMO.
Obviously they needed help on D, but still :?

Yes, in the words of Charles Barkley "That's Turrrrrible" No way in hell I give up the first, iffy on even a 2. This reeks of desperation on KC's part.

Good trade for Seattle and I’ll leave it at that.

Looks like a good trade for KC
Clark is their 1st rounder this year, he signed a 5 year contract. They still have 2 2nd rounders this year. They gave up a 2nd rounder next year they got for Ford.
Clark is better than Ford, still have top 2 picks next year.

Good trade from a draft standpoint. Not sure how it’s going to translate into improving the Seahawks for 2019. They got a late first round pick #29 and swapped third round picks with the Chiefs giving up their earlier pick for the later Chiefs pick. Frank Clark was the only thing close to a pass rusher on the Seahawks in 2018 and I doubt they will find anything like him at #29. From a long term standpoint it could improve the Seahawks but for now their defense has taken a step back similar to the Raiders situation last year.

It's an amazing piece of business.

That's a hell of a haul for a guy you had zero interest in committing to long term.

Swings and Roundabouts.. Now the nags have 2 x 1st Rd picks. One of those could be used as leverage for more picks, particularly in the 2nd Rd where they currently have no picks.

So currently Seattle has 5 picks, 2 of which are day one. This could easily change to 6 or even 7 total picks, a few of which could translate to early day two picks.

Agreed. Anything that appears to weaken the Seahawks defense is a good thing for Rams fans.

Too bad they didn't trade Wilson too.

Seahawks D is the ultimate team defense. No one player is worth the cap hit for them. They have a scheme and they find players who fit within it.

Team defense is helped a lot by quality players. They tried to sign their defensive players and that backfired with some costly long term cap hits like Chancellor and Avril due to injury. This year the let a couple of All Pro players move on via free agency and the Clark trade. It’s a system that works if you’re able to draft well. Pete Carroll and John Schneider were wizards in the draft room 5-7 years ago but not so much lately. Seahawks now have a total of 6 picks in the draft so I’m positive they will move out of at least one of those picks if not both. They have a ton of holes to fill with cheaper talent to be able to offset the huge Wilson deal and what figures to be another record breaking deal for Wagner. I think he gets 17.5 million a year in an extension this summer.
