KANSAS CITY, Mo. — One of the top defensive players for the Kansas City Chiefs is on his way out. The Chiefs have officially release defensive end Frank Clark Tuesday.

The Chiefs and Clark’s agent Erik Burkhardt were unable to agree on a reworked deal after multiple conversations, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Monday.

The 29-year-old is now free to sign with any other team. It’s unclear where he’ll land at this point, but he’s sure to garner plenty of interest.

Releasing Clark will clear about $21 million in cap space for the Chiefs.

The team shared a special thank you for Clark on social media.

“Forever a Kansas City Chief @TheRealFrankC_. Thank you for everything, 55,” the team said on Twitter.

Just last week, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid also praised Clark.

“I love Frank Clark. It’s just, you know, (Chiefs GM Brett) Veach has got to juggle all these different things going on,” Reid said. “Frank, he’s top-notch. I love him, love him to death.”

The veteran edge rusher certainly left his mark in Kansas City, as he was a vital part of both of the Chiefs’ Super Bowl runs.

Clark will leave the Chiefs as third all-time in postseason sacks with 13.5, the most sacks for the Chiefs in a single postseason with five, four Pro Bowls and two Super Bowl Championships.

However, he’s also dealt with several legal disputes. In September, Clark pleaded no contest to two misdemeanor charges. The case stems from an arrest for gun possession in Los Angeles in June 2021.

The 29-year-old was suspended two games last season because of the case.

He was known for his fiery passion on the field and for stepping up his play when the stakes got bigger.

Clark could very well have his name etched in the Chiefs’ Ring of Honor when his career is over.
