Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Seahawks DE Frank Clark has no plans to sign his franchise tender or show up for the start of training camp unless his reps and Seattle are able to get an agreement in place on a long-term deal.
Seattle has maintained that they want to keep Clark long-term and plan to continue working on a long-term extension this offseason. However, it doesn’t sound like they’re close to an agreement at this point in time.
On Saturday, Jay Glazer reported that the Bills are among the teams that have expressed interest in acquiring Clark. Although, reports later refuted the Bills having interest in him.
The franchise tags for Clark will be $17,128,000 fully guaranteed for the 2019 season.
Clark, 25, is a former second-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2015. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $3.732 million contract and set to make a base salary of $705,000 for the 2018 season.
In 2018, Clark appeared in all 16 games for the Seahawks and recorded 41 tackles, 13 sacks, an interception, three forced fumbles, two recoveries and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 18 overall edge defender out of 103 qualifying players.
