The Seattle Seahawks are listening to trade offers for defensive end Frank Clark but it’s going to take a lot to replace Pete Carroll’s top pass rusher. Clark was outstanding in 2018 recording 13 sacks and that’s so much production to lose. Obviously if some team wants to acquire Clark they’ll have to give up a significant amount in return to pull this deal off.
General Manager John Schneider and Carroll are no fools though and they know not to accept a low ball offer for such a key piece to their defense. It almost feels like something will happen quickly especially if the Seahawks want to get some picks that can be used in 2019 NFL Draft. Otherwise the deal doesn’t make sense because adding picks for the 2020 draft would take Seattle out of the hunt this upcoming season. Of course there is the possibility that Seattle could acquire a couple of players for Clark. However it’ll have to be some guys who fit their system and who can be molded as Carroll sees fit. To make matters even more interesting Russell Wilson might be moving on from the squad as well. Clearly that will complicate things quite a bit but you can never count out the Seahawks. Outside of the New England Patriots not many teams find a way to stay relevant like Seattle always does. This front office can easily turn Clark and Wilson into three first round picks and then retool for their next run. Which could turn into Dwayne Haskins, Clelin Ferrell, and Noah Fant. Would this franchise be better off with those young players? It’s hard to say but it would help them turn the page on the old era and give them a brand new nucleus to build around.
