Narrator: It doesn’t really make sense

So, get this. Remember last month when the Chiefs sent pass rusher Dee Ford to the 49ers for a second round pick? Well, now the Chiefs are looking to trade their first round pick this year and their second round pick next year to Seattle for pass rusher Frank Clark. No, seriously, that’s what is being reported right now.

I mean, why trade Dee Ford at all if you are just going to then trade a bunch of picks to get Frank Clark? Do they really think Clark is that much better than Ford? Both players were slapped with the franchise tag and they are giving Clark a huge payday as well.

Both players had 13.0 sacks last season and are one sack apart over their past two full seasons. Clark is three years younger (25) than Ford (28), so there’s that.

It just seems like an odd series of events, but, hey, if that’s what the Chiefs want to do, more power to them. Raiders fans can laugh at them for it, but having to deal with Frank Clark twice a season is no laughing matter.
