A Reminder: Kenny Clark Is Good At Football
Kenny Clark is due for payday. He knows it. Packers fans know it. And everyone at 1265 Lombardi knows it. The big question this summer will be ‘Will the Packers sign Clark to a long-term contract?’ Many want the Packers to give Clark the bag right now. Although it’s very complicated since many top players need a contract or contract extension this summer or the next. But Clark is very very good. If you forget that Clark is a good player, this is a good reminder from our friends at Next Gen Stats.

Think about for a second who Clark shares the top five within third-down pressures. Aaron Donald, Justin Houston, Nick Bosa, and Za’Darius Smith. All four are great pass rushers in their own right. I don’t know if we ever call Clark a pass-rusher, but maybe it’s time that we start giving him that distinction. He also joins Donald and Houston as the only three guys to finish in the top five in pressure rate. Clark makes people’s lives a living hell on the inside.
It is not my money, but if it were, I would be giving Clark a deal so he could buy Marlon Brando’s first house as Vince did in Entourage. He deserves that type of money. The Packers defensive lineman should be the first one up of the group of guys that needs to get paid. More people should watch Clark tape because what you’ll see is a guy that can do it in all phases of the game. If he is putting up similar numbers to Aaron Donald with a tenth of the hype, this guy needs to be gassed up a little more, right?
We shall see if the Packers deliver the goods of a new deal this summer.
