Clark agreed Wednesday to restructure his contract with the Packers, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Green Bay frees up roughly $10.9 million in cap space for the 2022 season by converting $13.6 million of Clark's salary into a signing bonus, plus adding two voidable years to his deal. More Packers players are likely to follow Clark and restructure their deals this offseason, given the team's current salary cap constraints. Clark is coming off a 48-tackle, four-sack campaign in which he earned a second career Pro Bowl nod.
Clark was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports. Clark returned to practice Thursday, and the team is optimistic that he'll be able to suit up Saturday against the Browns. The starting nose tackle missed last week's win over the Ravens after being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list a week ago.
Clark was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. It's not yet known whether Clark has tested positive for the virus or whether he's considered a close contact. However, he'll likely be sidelined Sunday against the Ravens because he was placed on the list so late in the week. Tyler Lancaster and Tedarrell Slaton are the candidates to fill in for an absent Clark this weekend.
Clark racked up six tackles (three solo) and a sack in Sunday's 36-28 victory over the Rams. The six tackles tied a season high for Clark, and the sack was the first he put on the board since he tallied two of them in Week 6. Clark has been a force on the Packers' defensive line all season, and he now finds himself just two sacks shy of the career-high six he recorded in both the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
Clark recorded three solo tackles and two sacks in Sunday's 24-14 victory over the Bears. Clark has been wreaking a lot of havoc in opposing backfields, and that finally paid off in the sack column, as he recorded twice as many sacks in Week 6 as he tallied through the Packers' first five games. He is well on his way to matching or surpassing the career-high six sacks he recorded during the 2018 and 2019 campaigns.
