Arrowheadlines: Once again, Patrick Mahomes broke the internet

Looking for a bounceback candidate in Kansas City? How about defensive end Frank Clark, who dropped some serious weight in the offseason and looks much closer to the player who dominated the opposition in Kansas City’s march to Super Bowl LIV glory in 2020. Clark acknowledged to reporters this summer that he played with a ”gut” last season, extra lbs that affected his speed and agility. Add in some troubling off-the-field issues from last offseason, and Clark profiled as a cut candidate ahead of the new league year. Instead, the Chiefs stuck with their high-priced defender — restructuring his contract in March — and now could reap the benefits. Frank Clark playing with the eye of the tiger would be a massive lift for Steve Spagnuolo’s defense.
