KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs acquired pass rusher Frank Clark from the Seattle Seahawks for a package of picks Tuesday, then quickly agreed with him on a $105 million, five-year contract, as they continue to overhaul their much-maligned defense.
The Chiefs sent the No. 29 overall pick in this year's draft and a second-round pick in 2020 to Seattle, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. The person spoke about the trade terms and contract details on condition of anonymity because they were pending a physical.
The trade, first reported by the NFL Network, also includes a swap of third-round picks in this year's draft. That means the Chiefs will move up eight spots on Friday.
Seattle already had the 21st pick overall pick Thursday night, and now general manager John Schneider has an additional first-day selection.

What looked like was going to be a relatively easy Vegas win turned crazy with 10:47 to play in regulation after a bloody scene on the ice led to a major penalty on Cody Eakin and sent San Jose captain Joe Pavelski to the locker room dazed.
