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.

Clark planned to head to Kansas City to complete that in the next 48 hours.


Broncos' Harris wants out if no contract

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Denver Broncos star cornerback Chris Harris Jr. told The Associated Press on Tuesday night that he wants to be traded if general manager John Elway doesn't give him a contract extension.

Elway insisted earlier Tuesday in his pre-draft news conference that he's not angry with Harris for skipping Denver's offseason program, unlike five years ago, when he ripped receiver Demaryius Thomas for doing the same thing during a contract stalemate.


Rams exercise 5th-year option on QB Goff

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Rams have locked down Jared Goff through the 2020 season, and they intend to keep their franchise quarterback around for a whole lot longer.

The Rams exercised Goff's $22.783 million, fifth-year contract option Tuesday. General manager Les Snead and coach Sean McVay also affirmed the NFC champions' intention to sign their young offensive leader to a long-term deal eventually.


Judge: No release of Kraft video for now

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) A video that police say shows New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft paying a massage parlor worker for sex should not be publicly released for now because it would ruin his chance for a fair trial, a judge ruled Tuesday.

Circuit Judge Leonard Hanser accepted arguments by Kraft's attorneys that releasing the video would likely make it impossible to seat a jury for his trial on misdemeanor prostitution charges. He said the video shouldn't be handed to the news media as a public record until a jury is seated, a plea agreement is reached or the state drops the case. Kraft has pleaded not guilty but has issued an apology for his conduct.

Jags' Marrone, CB Ramsey finally talk

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jacksonville Jaguars coach Doug Marrone might need to update his contact list.
