Bills have interest in Seattle DE Frank Clark

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Another less than ideal character drawing interest from McBeane, per Jay Glazer 

 

@JayGlazer: Well, Dan Morgan worked in Seattle and is close to John Schneider. There’s interest around Frank Clark from them and others RT @swailes_robert: @JayGlazer Now there are three guys I'd be happy for the Bills to go after.

 

@JayGlazer: Lost in all the talk of Antonio Brown trade talk is the fact that there’s been a lot of chatter among teams looking to trade for premium pass rusher such as Clowney, Frank Clark, Dee Ford.

Didn’t he get franchise tagged? If so I wonder what the compensation would be...

He is a helluva player. 

 

In other news, NE just traded for Michael Bennett, who had a very good season for Philly last year ...

Yes, he was tagged.  I wonder if Seattle tagged him in order to "buy" some time to trade him.

For sure he is.

 

What I find interesting is, with his less than ideal past and after the failed attempt on AB, maybe they feel that that they have a locker room strong enough to go after these types of players.

Could be. Also, my understanding is that Clark hasn't been a problem in Seattle.

To be honest I’d rather Buffalo grab a young Frank Clark over a +30 AB.

If that’s true, I’d have to pass on him.

If you sign the player to offer sheet under tag. This would be more like the peerless price trade. We work out compensation with the team.

I think for two firsts a team can take a franchised player- not a trade specifically. The team that assigns the tag can trade him for whatever they want to if they feel they will not be able to sign him long term. 

 

I wouldn't want to give more than a 3rd for Clark with the thick DL draft ahead. Maybe a third and swap of firsts, which would be beneficial to us anyways.

two firsts if you sign him to an offersheet and they do not match.

 

Any trade Compensation could be worked out other than what those 2 firsts are.

 

I guess working out a trade for a franchised player (has been done before) would classify as Mario's earlier report of Bills will add edge rushing in a "creative way"

Interest is a one way street until proven otherwise.  Agents are just using us.

I do expect the bills to make a big splash trade in the next couple days... It feels that way.

I see - thanks.  Presumably, in this case, Seattle would not match, but take the 2 firsts, yes?

Yeah if Bills sign him to an offer sheet.  I dont think they would.  It would just be a normal trade followed by the deal

Well, Beane showed he’s willing to trade down from 9.  So maybe swap 1sts and Hughes or Lawson?

Clark is a good player and would be a nice add.  I assume they are comfortable that the bad domestic violence issue he had a couple of years ago is completely in the past.

Sometimes they just do it to retain the player to buy some time and end up trading for considerably less.

I watch all of the Hawks games and Clark is a helluva player. Would love to see him and Hughes collapsing the pocket next season. He would be a top 10 pick this year in the draft and is in the early stages of his prime. He would not come cheaply.

Clark is a ***** animal, if they get him we shore up that pass rush and hopefully get a rotational pass rusher at 9 like Ferrell or Sweat.
