There could be trouble ahead for the reigning AFC champions in terms of their defensive unit. But the Kansas City Chiefs have some options.

It has been a rough few months for Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark. The six-year pro has some legal issues after an arrest in March. Now the speculation begins on his future. Will he be suspended by the league? Will the organization part ways with him? It’s anyone’s guess at the moment and there are plenty of opinions.

In 29 regular-season contests with the Chiefs since 2019, Clark has totaled a combined 14 sacks, three forced fumbles and a pair of fumble recoveries. He is a solid complement to two-time Pro Bowler Chris Jones. But what if the former Seahawk does miss some time? Here are three versatile edge-rushers who are not only available but could certainly fill the possible void.

3. Melvin Ingram can still get after quarterbacks

He’s coming off an injury-shortened year in which he played and started in just seven games. In 2020, Melvin Ingram finished with just 10 tackles, a pair of passes defensed and zero sacks.

The 18th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Chargers had a rough start to his career. But the former University of South Carolina standout would fashion quite the career. In a five-year span from 2015-19, Ingram rolled up a combined 43.0 QB traps, to go along with 10 forced fumbles and six fumble recoveries. He earned three Pro Bowl invitations over that span and is more than familiar with Andy Reid’s team.
