Seattle Seahawks, DE Chris Clemons consent to terms

The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms on a new contract with veteran defensive finish Chris Clemons, the team announced Friday.

Clemons, thirty-four, spent the past two seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, totaling eleven sacks. In two thousand-fifteenth, he started seven games and had three sacks. The team released him in March.

This will be Clemons' second stint with the Seahawks. He'd a successful running from two thousand ten to two thousand thirteen, piling up thirty-eight sacks during four years.

Clemons will likely back up Cliff Avril at the LEO spot, and he could obtain a chance to compete for snaps at right defensive end, with Bruce Irvin having signed with the Oakland Raiders.

Clemons' production declined significantly in two thousand-fifteenth, but he played in every game over the past two seasons (twenty-three starts) and had four pass breakups, five forced fumbles and fifty tackles.

He has sixty-nine sacks, two hundred seventy-six tackles, eighteen forced fumbles and seven fumble recoveries in eleventh seasons with five teams.

The 34-year-old Clemons had two years remaining on a four-year, $17.5 million contract he signed in two thousand-fourteenth. He was due a $500.000 roster bonus March thirteen and had a salary cap figure of $4 million in each of the following two seasons.

Clemons didn't partake in the Jaguars' nine organized team activities in the spring but did attend the mandatory three-day minicamp. He did reported to training camp one day late because of what the team called personal issues. He was placed on the active/non-football injury list at that time and was eventually removed from it Aug. 17.
