Reflecting on the 2023 season in a recent interview with the Green Bay Packers media, Clark expressed pride in his performance, especially in adapting to different roles on the field. He mentioned his career-high sack count and overall consistency throughout the year.

The season saw Clark achieving personal milestones with career-high figures in sacks (7.5) and quarterback hits (16), propelling him to ninth place in the Green Bay Packers’ all-time career sacks list.

Additionally, Kenny Clark led the team’s defensive linemen in tackles for the eighth consecutive year, matching personal bests in tackles for loss (9), forced fumbles (2), and pass deflections (3) in a single season. Looking ahead, Clark expressed optimism about the team’s potential, stating that the sky is the limit for the Packers. Excited about building upon the positive momentum, he looks forward to a promising future for the team.
