Now that defensive end Frank Clark is a free agent yet again, the hopes of a return to the Kansas City Chiefs are very real, and fans cannot control their optimism. It is not just fans of the team who would love to get Frank Clark back on board.

Interestingly, one of his former teammates, along with whom Clark terrorized quarterbacks across the NFL, is also hoping that the pass rusher decides to come back to Arrowhead. Chris Jones, the defensive end for the Chiefs, wants Frank back on the team; after all, he played a very instrumental role in the Super Bowl victories of the team.

Frank was in Arrowhead for four seasons; he had his best year in 2022 with 21 solo sacks and 14 assisted sacks. He was originally drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in 2015 in the second round of the draft. He was traded in 2019 in exchange for a 2019 first-round draft pick, a 2020 second-round draft pick, and a swap of 2019 draft picks. 

Chris Jones stated, “You can never have enough pass rushers. Frank, to me, is like a brother. We were able to achieve a lot of success with Frank.” The pass-rusher knows what Clark is capable of and that they have great chemistry on the field.

With Frank and Jones on the field, the Chiefs can be more versatile with their defensive plays. Jones goes on to add, “Kansas City knows the type of guy Frank is, what he brings to this team. The type of charisma, the attitude, the leadership he brings. To have him back, I would love for that to happen. We’ll see where it goes. He’s still a free agent right now. Hopefully, we get him in.” (H/T: NBCsports)

Frank Clark was a key part of the Kanas City Chiefs Super Bowl victories

Frank Clark’s contract was restructured a day before the Denver Broncos decided to release him. Ian Rapoport had stated that the team failed to find a suitable trade partner for the three-time Pro Bowler, which led them to make this decision. His restructured deal was set to pay him a $1.7 million base salary and $841,000 for the remainder of the season. This season has been a forgettable one for Frank, who has played in just one game and had two solo sacks.

The Kansas City Chiefs parted ways with him as the two sides were unable to reach a lucrative deal. He entered the final year of his contract in 2023, and by releasing him, the team was able to clear $21 million in salary cap space to use in free agency.

Frank Clark made it known via social media on Wednesday that he would be in Kansas City on Thursday. The pass rusher did not mention the reason for this visit, but this just increased the odds of him making a return to his former team.
