The Kansas City Chiefs added a significant piece to their defensive rebuild on Tuesday by trading a pair of draft picks to the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for defensive end Frank Clark, league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Clark, who had yet to sign the $17.128 million franchise tag given to him by the Seahawks, has agreed to a five-year, $105.5 million deal that includes $63.5 million guaranteed, sources told Schefter.

The Chiefs parted with their first-round draft choice, which is 29th overall, and the teams will exchange third-round picks, sources told ESPN. The Chiefs also will send the lower of their two 2020 second-round draft picks to the Seahawks, sources told ESPN.

Imagine having your kicker of all people demand a trade.  Well, that's what's happening in Santa Clara with Robbie Gould.

He has pulled all of his contract proposals and informed the team he will not sign with them long-term.  Furthermore, his agent says that he has no intention of reporting to training camp or preseason.  He won't return to the team until the September 8th season opener, if at all.

Cool. Cut him and move on. Kickers are a dime a dozen.

If there's any positions that have no room to make demands, its the punter then the kicker. Both are easily replacable. Hope Gould likes being umemployed.

Yeah I agree, they aren't the flashy positions, but how many games have been won and lost on field goals. Plus consider the effects of a punter that can bury a team with each punt versus one that cannot - huge difference on the game, field position, possession, and momentum.

Yeah reliable kickers are not "a dime a dozen", which is why the 49ers franchised him to begin with and probably won't trade him (reports are saying the 49ers don't have any interest in doing so but we'll see). He's been one of the best kickers in the league since he got there and the idea that they can replace him with just anybody is ridiculous. He has won games for them.

Seriously what are some of you people smoking?  If good kickers were a dime a dozen you wouldn’t have teams like the Chargers or Buccaneers struggling mightily to find one decent kicker.  Passable kickers might be a dime a dozen, good ones aren’t.

Justin Tucker is worth every penny. With the exception of Ed Reed I can't think of a single Raven in their history who has managed to completely swing games by their very presence. Teams didn't pass it the same way when Reed was in his prime, and Tucker means the Ravens generally only need 35-40 yards in a drive to have a chance at getting points.

There's no kicker in the NFL like Justin Tucker. Last year was his worst in the league by far and he was still statistically (I think) in the top 3 of all kickers.

One of the things that's really intriguing about this draft is what happens with the QBs even Murray. If Arizona takes Bosa instead does a team make a huge trade to go up and get him? Do the Giants sit and wait and hope he falls to them? If the Giants have Allen on the board at 6 do they grab him knowing Haskins/Lock/Jones will have at least one there at 17?

Whatever happens I know the Ravens will make the most boring pick possible and 3 years later we'll be going "Wow _____ was such a great pick".

The Giants should run to the podium if Allen is there at #6.  And even if he's not there, the most common name I hear coming up is Devin White who I'd also be thrilled with.  Basically, they are almost certainly guaranteed to have a stud defensive player available for their first pick and that's where I want them to go.  The only QB I'd take at #6 is Haskins, but since the Giants supposedly aren't big on him, I'm fine going defense.

I've made it no secret that I have no interest in Dan Jones, not even at #17.  I think he's only getting buzz because QBs always get buzz in the draft.  I've seen a few grading systems rank him as a 3rd round level talent.  Gettleman is stubborn, and if he takes Jones in the first round that means he's 100% committing to him next year and beyond even if/when the Giants are in a great spot to pick Tua/Herbert/Fromm who I all think are far better than Jones.

I'm terrified because the Giants beat writer I trust most has quoted a scout as saying the Giants LOVE Jones and will probably just take him at #6.  I truly hope that is just a smokescreen to get Washington to try to jump as they supposedly like Jones too.  Jones at #6 would make me physically ill.

Happy draft day guys! 

Hoping for OL (particularly guard), CB, and an off-the ball LB for the Lions in the earlier rounds.  What's everyone else looking for?

A new offensive line and some corners would be delightful.

I hate the Cardinals. Haven't been able to enjoy having the #1 pick because of all this Murray stuff. I hope we draft Williams or trade out of the spot to be honest.

You can win immediately when you draft one of next year's QBs. Especially if you load up on stud skill position players in the draft this year. You get 2 5-year rookie deals and then since you'll be bad next year surely have your pick of the litter. Giants have, through probably no planning by Gettleman, have actually put themselves in a really enviable position for a post-Eli era.

Outside of Murray and Haskins every QB in the draft this year feels like a guy you'll 1) have to develop, 2) have to scheme your offense around masking their deficiencies.
