SEATTLE — Unable to reach agreement on a long-term contract with the Seattle Seahawks, defensive end Frank Clark is on his way out of town. The team’s best pass rusher in 2018, Clark was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs on Tuesday morning for a package that included the Chiefs’ 2019 first-round pick, a 2020 second-rounder and a swap of 2019 third-rounders, a league source confirmed to The Seattle Times.

The deal means Seattle has pick Nos. 21, 29, 92, 124 and 159 in this weekend’s draft as well as 12 picks in 2020 — its own seven, the second-rounder from the Chiefs (the lower of Kansas City’s two picks in that round), and what are expected to be four compensatory picks for losing free agents this year.

Both ESPN and the NFL Network initially reported the trade as well as The Kansas City Star.
