What would a Seahawks trade for Kenny Clark look like?
The Seahawks will undoubtedly be interested. However, the Packers lack any real incentives to make this deal happen. For a deal to occur a godfather type offer will need to put out there.
Unlike the Chiefs and the trade idea for Chris Jones, the Packers are not in cap hell. They can afford to keep Clark both this year and into the future. For a trade to the Seahawks to come to fruition, it would cost north of an arm, and perhaps south of adding a leg.
If the Seahawks want to make this trade, they will need to blow the Packers socks off with an aggressive offer.
My Proposed Trade:
This trade would give the Packers multiple draft picks to help add depth as well as giving the team a talented number 2-number 3 receiver in David Moore. Moore has phenomenal hands, solid in run blocking and excels at yards after the catch. His mantra is ‘always make the first man miss’.
The Seahawks would need to get an extension in place before the finalization of the trade to ensure this was worthwhile.
Terms: 4 years, $72.8 million
Average Salary: $18.2 million
Guaranteed: $35 million
Cap Hits By Year:
- 2020: $9.5 million
- 2021: $15.5 million
- 2022: $17.5 million
- 2023: $18.5 million
- 2024: $19.5 million
Key Note: The Seahawks would inherit his $7.69 million contract that he is currently playing under for 2020. So the contract total would actually be $80.5 million over 5 years or $16.1 million per year.
This trade would keep Clark in a Seahawks uniform through his age-29 season. The Packers would receive a king’s ransom for a talented player. This would be a win-win for both teams.
