The younger Clark, who was 24 by that time, attended nearby Glenville High School. His mother had him move from Los Angeles to Cleveland to live with family members when he was 12.

He then played collegiately at Michigan before the Seahawks made him their top draft choice in 2015.

Officials from the Cleveland Division of Fire told the city’s WEWS television the surviving woman who jumped from the burning house in the 1600 block of Hillview Road in the South Collinwood neighbourhood on Tuesday is the mother of a 3-year-old boy, grandmother of an 8-year-old girl, wife of the 46-year-old man and aunt to the 44-year-old Frank Clark III.

The bodies of those latter four were found dead in the home. Officials told WEWS the husband and wife were sleeping on the second floor of the home when the fire awakened them. The mother tried to rescue her son, but she was repelled by smoke. She escaped by jumping through a second-floor window.

Frank Clark Girlfriend

Frank was in the news in late 2014 after he was arrested for domestic violence and assault on his then-girlfriend, Diamond Hurt, who he had been vacationing with along with her younger siblings at a hotel in Sandusky, Ohio.

According to the police report, the couple got into an argument while laying down on the bed together. The argument soon later turned into an altercation as Hurt said she hurled a television remote control at Clark. The football player then responded by restraining her on the bed which led to her biting him on the nose.

When Clark eventually let loose of Hurt and got off the bed, the confrontation escalated, prompting Clark to allegedly punch her in the face as she fell backwards and broke a lamp in the room. She reacted to the punch by throwing an alarm clock at him as he left the room.

Noise from the altercation had by this time been heard by hotel staff and guests, who called the police to the scene.

Hotel manager Stephanie Burkhardt in her statement to police said that when she approached the college athlete, he threatened to hit her like he hit his girlfriend.

After having questioned everybody involved, Clark who had maintained that he did not punch his girlfriend, was handcuffed and booked at the Erie County Jail.

Even though Ms Hurt was not looking to press charges in order not to hurt her boyfriend’s chances of getting into the NFL, which has a campaign against domestic violence.

In reaction to the incident, the Michigan football team dismissed Frank Clark the following day. A few months later, before the 2015 NFL Draft, the prosecutor’s office reduced the charge to disorderly conduct, which Clark pleaded guilty to. He was further made to pay a fine of $250.

Frank Clark Career

Frank Clark High School Career

In Cleveland, Clark attended Glenville High School where he was a star player on its football team, playing a variety of positions; outside linebacker, defensive end, tight end, and safety. He was also a notable track & field athlete who competed in sprints, jumps, and hurdles. As a high school senior with the football team, Clark recorded 70 tackles and 19 sacks in defence, while also recording 12 pass receptions and 3 touchdowns in offensive plays.

The young athlete’s performances earned him a three-star national rating and he went on to commit to attending the University of Michigan. In 2011, Frank Clark’s first year with the Wolverines football team, he played a total of 12 games in the linebacker position and managed 6 total tackles and 1 interception which directly led to a touchdown in the Sugar Bowl.

In his sophomore year, despite having been suspended from the team for a while for felony second-degree home invasion, Clark recorded 25 tackles (16 solos), 9 tackles for loss, and 2 quarterback sacks.

As a junior, Clark put on massive amounts of weight but was still able to retain his speed. He was then moved to play in the defensive end position where he recorded 42 tackles (19 solos), 12.5 tackles for loss, and 5 sacks. His performance earned him a second-team All-Big Ten selection by the coaches but however just an honourable mention selection by the media.

He carried on his performances into his final collegiate year where he managed 41 tackles (29 solos), 13 tackles for loss, and 4 sacks in just 10 games before being dismissed from the team for an alleged domestic violence incident with his girlfriend.

Despite all the negativity that his off-field shenanigans had brought to him, Frank Clark was drafted in the second round as the 63rd overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks.

Frank Clark College Career

As a freshman for the 2011 Wolverines, Clark had an interception that set up one of Michigan’s two touchdowns on January 3, 2012, Sugar Bowl. In the following offseason leading up to the season opener for the 2012 team against Alabama, Clark was suspended from the team for felony second-degree home invasion, for alleged theft of a MacBook Air. He was allowed to return to practice a few weeks later.

He eventually pleaded guilty to the felony charge after missing one week. He was subject to punishment, not more than 15 years in prison and $3,000 fine, but was eligible for sentencing under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, which would expunge the record upon satisfaction of probation requirements. Clark had quarterback sacks in each of the team’s two final regular-season games against Iowa and Ohio State.

In Clark’s first two years at Michigan, he added over 60 pounds (27.22 kg), without losing any speed. On September 21, he had 1.5 sacks against Connecticut, including one on third down during Connecticut’s final possession as the 2013 Wolverines clung to a 24–21 lead.

He also had two sacks against Penn State on October 12 and ran back a fumble recovery for a touchdown, although it was not enough to help Michigan avert its first loss of the season. Following the regular season, he was recognized as a second-team All-Big Ten selection by the coaches and an honourable mention selection by the media. On November 16, 2014, Clark was arrested for domestic violence and dismissed from the football team.

Frank Clark Professional Career

Seattle Seahawks
Clark was drafted in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft with the 63rd overall selection by the Seattle Seahawks. He spent the 2015 season as a backup to Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril at defensive end. Clark had 2 tackles in week 3 against the Chicago Bears on September 27.

On November 29, Clark had a sack against the Pittsburgh Steelers. On December 6 against the Minnesota Vikings, Clark had 2 sacks. In the divisional round of the 2015–16 NFL playoffs against the Carolina Panthers Clark had 1 sack.

Clark finished the 2016 regular season with 10 sacks and 2 forced fumbles.

During the offseason on May 9, 2017, Clark was criticized for a tweet he directed at Bleacher Report journalist Natalie Weiner. Weiner had previously written about Clark’s domestic violence arrest. Clark told Weiner that “People like you don’t have long careers in your field.

I have a job for you cleaning my fish tanks when that little job is over.” In Week 6 of the 2018 season, Clark recorded 2.5 sacks on quarterback Derek Carr to along with four tackles in a 27-3 win over the Oakland Raiders, earning him NFC Defensive Player of the Week. He finished the season with 41 combined tackles, 13 sacks, two pass deflection, one interception, and three forced fumbles through 16 starts.

On March 4, 2019, the Seahawks placed the franchise tag on Clark.

Kansas City Chiefs
On April 23, 2019, Clark was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs along with the Seahawks’ 3rd round selection in the 2019 NFL Draft, in exchange for the Chiefs’ 1st and 3rd round selections in the 2019 NFL draft, as well as a 2nd round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft. After the trade, he signed a five-year contract worth $105.5 million with $63.5 million guaranteed.

Frank Clark Dee Ford

Chiefs give up far more for Frank Clark than they got for Dee Ford

The Chiefs must think the pass rusher they just acquired is a lot better than the one they traded away. Kansas City gave up a 2019 first-round pick and a 2020 second-round pick to acquire Frank Clark from the Seahawks. Previously this offseason, the Chiefs traded Dee Ford to the 49ers for a 2020 second-round pick.

Essentially, the Chiefs traded Dee Ford and a first-round pick to get Frank Clark. To give up a first-round pick rather than just keeping Ford, the Chiefs must think Clark is a lot better than Ford, even though Clark and Ford both had 13 sacks last season.

The Chiefs have gone through a major defensive overhaul this offseason, and it’s easy to see why: Their offence was great last year, but their defence couldn’t stop Tom Brady and company in the playoffs, keeping Kansas City out of the Super Bowl.

But it’s easy to wonder whether the Chiefs aren’t giving up too much to make these changes. They’re going to pay Clark a reported $105 million over five years, and give up a first-round pick and a second-round pick for the privilege of doing that. Compare that to the way the Lions upgraded at defensive end, by paying Trey Flowers $90 million over five years and not giving up any draft picks to do it.

If Clark is an All-Pro and the Chiefs have a Super Bowl-caliber defence, all of this will be worth it. But that’s a big “if.”

Frank Clark Trade Grade

Grading the Frank Clark trade: The Seahawks fleeced the Chiefs

The Chiefs are jumping on the trend started by the Rams and Bears. Those teams recognized the benefit of having a solid starting quarterback on a rookie deal and looked to capitalize on that window by using the money saved at the QB position to spend big on stars at other positions.

Kansas City appears to be taking the same approach after it swung a deal for Seahawks DE Frank Clark, which cost the Chiefs first- and second-round picks and a five-year, $105.5 million contract, including $63.5 million guaranteed, to lock him up long term.

Now, there are worse ways to spend cap space, but this deal didn’t happen in a vacuum. The reason Kansas City was in need of a pass rusher in the first place was its decisions to trade pending free agent Dee Ford to San Francisco for a second-round pick and let the ageing-but-still-productive Justin Houston go to Indianapolis for a modest deal.

In all, Ford and Houston signed for seven years, $110 million, including $51.8 million in guaranteed money, with their new teams. That’s two ultra-productive players for, essentially, the price of Clark.

Now, you might be thinking that the Chiefs defence was awful last year and the biggest culprit in all of their losses, and you’d be correct. But that had little to do with Houston and Ford, who combined for 125 QB pressures. No other teammates combined for more.

Clark managed an impressive 64 on his own, which is 16 more than Houston tallied but 13 fewer than Ford’s total. Pro Football Focus graded Ford as the best pass rusher in 2018. Houston ranked fifth. Clark ranked outside the top-20.

(This is all without taking into account Clark’s troubling history with domestic violence, or the time he tweeted to a female reporter that she wouldn’t last long in the business and would end up cleaning his fish tank.)

So, essentially, Kansas City gave up a first-round pick and about $12 million in guaranteed money for a player who isn’t any better than either of the TWO players he’s being asked to replace on his own. The Chiefs’ pass rush, which was the only above-average facet of the defence, is somehow worse off than it was before the offseason began.

Kansas City’s defensive problems stemmed from an ineffective secondary that could not hold in coverage, and it’s going to take more than an effective rush to change that. Advanced stats suggest that in the relationship between pass rush and coverage, the latter plays a bigger role.

If Kansas City wanted to improve its defence, the front office should have allocated those resources — all that cap space and that first-round pick — on the secondary. That would have been the most effective way to maximize this window while Mahomes is on his rookie deal.

What’s more, Mahomes is already a top-tier quarterback. He’s not in that “Let’s hurry up and build around this rookie while he’s still cheap” class. Kansas City did not need to be in a rush to maximize its Super Bowl window, because Mahomes’ play would have done that on its own.

There are two viable paths to winning in the NFL today: Having an elite-level quarterback or having a solid one making below-market money. The Chiefs had both! There was no need to make a win-now move that could possibly limit the front office’s ability to build around Mahomes in the future. It could’ve done so naturally, as Mahomes continued to grow as a quarterback.

Instead, the Chiefs gave up astonishing value and cap space to acquire a player who will only marginally improve the team’s defence. And they gave up the opportunity to add a cheap star on Thursday night for the right to do it.


Chiefs: D-

Kansas City needed pass rush and they got it, which is the only thing keeping this deal from being a total failure. Frank Clark is a young, dominant pass rush who should continue to get better. But with a first-round pick in a draft loaded with pass rushers, the Chiefs could have found a similarly productive player without handing out an eight-figure contract. Or, they could have just re-signed Houston or Ford, saved money and kept their pick.

Seahawks: A

It’s going to be tough moving on from a talented player like Clark, but these are the kind of moves smart teams make. As good as Clark is, he’s not worth over $100 million — no pass rusher is. Especially with cheap pass rushers hitting the market every offseason and a draft class full of intriguing edge prospects. Seattle won a Super Bowl with undervalued pass rushers like Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril and Chris Clemons. Pete Carroll knows he can build a dominant defence without breaking the bank for a defensive end.
