Pass rusher Clark played for Seattle under Pete Carroll from 2015 until being traded to Andy Reid’s squad in 2019. He started 55 regular-season games with 127 combined tackles with 23.5 sacks and 59 quarterback hits in Kansas City.

Clark joins Juan Thornhill, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Orlando Brown Jr., Andrew Wylie and Mecole Hardman as players leaving Kansas City after the victory in Super Bowl LVII.

Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones also chimed in on the news.

One of Veach’s upcoming decisions will be whether to extend the contract of defensive lineman Chris Jones, or trade him ahead of the final season of his contract. Jones addressed a tweet by a fan in regards to a potential extension saying “I’m a Chief for life,” and “I will not play for another franchise.”

Jones signed a four-year, $80 million contract extension with the Chiefs ahead of the 2020 season. In 2022, Jones was a First Team All-Pro and a finalist for Defensive Player of the Year.
