Renton, Wash. – The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms with defensive end Chris Clemons, the team announced this afternoon.
Clemons originally joined the Seahawks as part of a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2010, when Seattle sent defensive end Darryl Tapp to Philadelphia and received Clemons and a 2010 fourth-round draft pick in return. Clemons had 11.0 sacks during his first season in Seattle, posted another 11.0 in 2012 and 11.5 in 2013 before finishing the team's Super Bowl-championship season with 4.5, giving the former undrafted free agent 38.0 sacks in his four seasons in the Pacific Northwest.
He has spent the past two seasons in Jacksonville, starting 24 of 32 games with 50 tackles and 11.0 sacks. In his 12 seasons, he has started 86 of 162 games played, with 258 tackles and 69.0 sacks.
