Jags Sign Chris Clemons To Four-Year Deal

2:30pm: Clemons’ four-year contract is worth a total of $17.5MM, with $5.475MM in guaranteed money, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports and Tom Pelissero of USA Today (Twitter links).

1:08pm: The Jags have officially signed Clemons, according to John Oesher of Jaguars.com (Twitter link).

9:33am: It’ll be a four-year deal for Clemons, Breer adds (via Twitter).

THURSDAY, 9:27am: Clemons has agreed to terms with the Jaguars and is expected to officially sign his new deal today, reports Breer (via Twitter).

WEDNESDAY, 5:18pm: Albert Breer of NFL Network (on Twitter) indicates that nothing has been agreed to just yet, but he says that a multiyear deal is likely.

5:08pm: It appears that the Jaguars are set to sign defensive end Chris Clemons, tweets Terry Blount of ESPN.

Clemons is coming off a down year and was slated to have a cap hit of about $9.667MM in 2014, so his release from Seattle was not unexpected. The 32-year-old recorded at least 11 sacks in his first three seasons with the Seahawks, but recovery from a torn ACL slowed him down in 2013, resulting in just 4.5 sacks and a -7.7 grade from Pro Football Focus (subscription required), which placed him 42nd among 52 qualified 4-3 defensive ends.

The Jaguars were also linked to Jared Allen, Jason Hatcher, and others, but with former Seattle defensive coordinator Gus Bradley at the helm, Clemons was the logical fit.
