Seahawks Re-Sign DE Chris Clemons


The Seattle Seahawks announced Friday that they’ve agreed to terms with veteran DE Chris Clemons.

After he was released, Clemons visited with the Dolphins, but wound up leaving Miami without an agreement. He also took a visit to Seattle, so he was clearly on their radar.

Clemons, 34, spent four years in Seattle after he came over in a trade with the Eagles during the 2010 season. He was entering the third year of his four-year, $17.5 million contract when he was released in a move that freed up $4 million in available cap space for the Jaguars.

In 2015, Clemons appeared in all 16 games for the Jaguars and recorded 14 tackles, three sacks, a forced fumble, a recovery returned for a touchdown and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 110 edge defender out of 110 qualifying players.
