No. 3 - Defensive end Frank Clark

12s hoped that bringing back Frank Clark during the middle of 2023 might rejuvenate Clark and greatly help with the consistency of the Seahawks' pass rush. Clark was great in the postseason for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2019 and 2020, but he was not overly productive during the regular season from 2020 through 2022 with the Chiefs. Clark left in free agency and signed with the Denver Broncos during the past offseason.

With the Broncos at the beginning of this year, Clark was either injured or unproductive. He played in only two games and didn't have a quarterback hit, tackle for loss or a sack. Denver released him as he was simply a siphon on the team's salary cap.

Seattle picking Clark up made sense on paper. Clark was good at the beginning of his career with the Seahawks and he wanted to come back. Plus, Seattle simply needs more players who can make their pass rush more consistent. The hope was that Clark could come in, be a veteran voice to young edge rushers such as Derick Hall, and get some pressure in limited snaps.

Clark has been so awful, though, that the last two games he has been a healthy scratch. In five games with Seattle in 2023, Clark has played on 135 snaps, yet has not recorded a quarterback hit, tackle for loss, not a sack. He is a free agent after this year and Seattle is only paying him $711,944 this year. But he hasn't been worth anywhere even close to that amount.
