After an extremely disappointing and disastrous 2022 season, the Denver Broncos have some new hopes going into next season.

They have a new head coach in Sean Payton, famous for being the longtime coach of the Drew Brees-era New Orleans Saints, and guiding them to a Super Bowl championship in their 2009 campaign.

Denver is hoping that they will be able to celebrate their own world title very soon.

They apparently took a step toward accomplishing that goal when they agreed to terms with defensive end Frank Clark on Thursday.

Fans’ reaction to the move has been mixed.

Some people don’t like this, citing the fact that Clarke is coming up on his 30th birthday.

But others like the move, especially since it would weaken the Broncos’ main rival in the AFC West.

The defending world champions have already lost No. 1 wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and star offensive tackle Orlando Brown Jr. this season.

On the other hand, some feel that Clark will not make enough of a difference as they expect the Broncos to miss the playoffs again.

Clark, an eight-year veteran, has made three Pro Bowls, and last season he posted 5.0 sacks, 13 quarterback hits and eight tackles for loss.

As a member of the Chiefs over the past four seasons, he has earned two Super Bowl rings, and that experience will be invaluable for Denver.

The Broncos haven’t made the playoffs since 2015 when they won the Super Bowl in Hall-O-Fame QB Peyton Manning’s final year.
