Seahawks agreed to trade their franchise player, DE Frank Clark, to the Kansas City Chiefs for a 2019 first-round pick, a 2020 second-round pick and an exchange of third-round picks this year, per league sources. Clark and Chiefs now will finalize their long-term deal. Chiefs have two second-round picks in 2020 - theirs and the one they acquired from SF for Dee Ford. They will retain the better of the 2’s, and the lower one will go to Seattle as part of the trade for Frank Clark.
In a turn of events, 49ers’ franchise kicker Robbie Gould has pulled his contract proposals that he sent to San Francisco and told the team he will not negotiate or sign a long-term deal with them, and he would like to be traded, Gould said Tuesday. Gould said if he reports at all, it will not be anytime before the 49ers’ Sept. 8 regular-season opener, and so he would be a summer-long franchise holdout. Gould's agent, Brian Mackler, said: "At this time, we are unsure when or if he will report. It will not be prior to Sept 8, at the earliest, if at all." Gould has gotten tired of 14 months of futile contract negotiations and with his wife and three boys still living in Chicago, and him unwilling to move them, he would rather work closer to them than in San Francisco.
