The Denver Broncos are signing former Kansas City Chiefs defensive end and Super Bowl champion Frank Clark to their roster. After spending four seasons with the Chiefs, Clark will now face his former team two times per season.

Following the team’s OTA practice at the Centura Training Center on Thursday, TheScore’s Jordan Schultz first reported the news surrounding Clark’s signing while offensive tackle Garett Bolles was conducting his media availability at the podium.

After harassing the Denver Broncos for four seasons, he’ll now have the opportunity to get after Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense this upcoming season. According to Schultz, Clark is signing a one-year deal worth up to $7.5M with $5.5M of his money being guaranteed this upcoming season.

In his four seasons with the Chiefs, Clark appeared in 58 total games for them and started in 55 of them. As a Chiefs defensive end, he had 127 tackles and 23.5 sacks as notable accomplishments for the demands of his position.

On top of that, where Clark will bring even more value to the Broncos’ defense this season revolves around his experience playing for a winning franchise, winning a Super Bowl, and being an impact playmaker for Kansas City. Clearly, the Broncos have invested in bringing in players this offseason who know what it takes to win games and win them by physically imposing their will.

Ben Powers and Mike McGlinchey are prime examples of that as is Clark. As it currently stands, with Clark’s addition to the Broncos’ defensive line room with position coach Marcus Dixon, Denver’s potential starting defensive line could be a force to deal with next season.

On paper, Zach Allen and Frank Clark are now projected to start for the Broncos at defensive end while D.J. Jones and Mike Purcell will likely start and rotate at the defensive tackle position. Role players like Matt Henningsen and Eyioma Uwazurike can continue to further their development in rotational roles this upcoming season if everything pans out accordingly.

In the postseason, Clark has played arguably the best football of his career when it matters most — coming up with 10.5 sacks in 12 total playoff games during his time in Kansas City. Hopefully he can help bring that transformation to the Denver Broncos this season.
