Source: Seahawks want the first round for DE Clark



The Seattle Seahawks are still considering changing defensive end Frank Clark, a source in the league told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Saturday.

In return, the Seahawks would like any package to include at least one first-round pick in the NFL draft next week, the source said.

Clark, who has not yet signed his $ 17,128 million franchise tag, has been the subject of commercial rumors. He led the Seahawks with 13 sacks and also had four forced fumbles and one interception last season, and added another bag in the wild-card playoff loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Earlier this week, Seahawks general manager John Schneider said rumors of exchanges are common this time of year, but he did not rule out Clark, who will turn 26 in June.

"He's a franchise player, we love Frank," Schneider said. "He is an incredibly effective pass rusher and we love him … When you approach the trade deadline and approach the draft, it's like a lot of speculation, a lot of drama, all the media and everything. It's what we're doing, it's entertainment.

"The people in the league know that we are in all agreements, that the people of my staff, we are always trying to understand the landscape around the National Football League, if we did not, we would not be doing our job." "We can not have our head in the sand with anything, but we love Frank, obviously that's why we cross it."

ESPN's Brady Henderson contributed to this report.
