A source close to Clark tells us ... the NFL star claims the weapon belongs to a member of his security team. We’re told attorney Alex Spiro will represent him moving forward in the case.
The Chiefs traded for the 28-year-old in 2019, then signed him to a five-year, $105 million contract. He missed the voluntary phases of the Chiefs’ offseason program but was in attendance for mandatory minicamp last week, speaking to reporters via Zoom on Tuesday.
The Chiefs have not released a statement on the matter at the time of this writing.
