4 Manic Monday cuts that could interest the Commanders in 2023

Commanders could sign Frank Clark
This would be a bombshell given how much strength the Washington Commanders have on their defensive front. But considering how injury-prone Chase Young’s been over the last two years, it’s a possibility that cannot be dismissed.
After reworking Frank Clark‘s deal didn’t go well, the Kansas City Chiefs are releasing the defensive end. This drastic measure saves them a ton of cap space and instantly makes him one of the most enticing free agents anywhere in the league.
Clark still put up decent numbers last season as the Chiefs surged to another Super Bowl title. He is a three-time Pro Bowler and has an exceptional leadership presence, which is sure to make him a hot commodity when the free-agent frenzy gets underway.
Hopefully, for the player and the Commanders, Young can stay healthy and make significant strides next season. If not, then they better have a good contingency plan if things continue on such a concerning trend.
While the addition of Clark would help, it’s a luxury the Commanders might not be able to afford. They already have a significant amount invested in their defensive front and with a projected market value of $12.4 million per season according to Spotrac, it’s money that can be better sent elsewhere.
