Less than an hour from a trade that sent the defensive end from Seattle to Kansas City - the two sides have just agreed on a monster deal to keep Clark in KC for the foreseeable future.
The two clubs will also swap 2019 third-rounders Kansas City now holds two second-round selections in next year's draft and the lower of the two slots will be given to Seattle.
Clark recorded a career-high 13 sacks last season.
The trade would give Seattle two first-round picks in the upcoming NFL Draft that starts Thursday.
Instead of signing Clark to a new contract - likely similar to that of Dallas' DeMarcus Lawrence or Detroit's Trey Flowers - Seattle listened to trade offers. And, sitting with the No. 29 pick, it was unlikely that they were going to get an elite edge defender in this draft class.
It was no secret that, after trading Dee Ford and releasing Justin Houston, that the Chiefs were going to be interested in any pass-rusher they could land. The 25-year-old Clark has totaled 32 sacks over the past three seasons for the Seahawks.
