Chris Clemons has informed the Seahawks of his retirement.
A 2003 undrafted free agent, Clemons is hanging up his cleats after 13 seasons. He's calling it quits with 69 sacks compiled over 162 games. He tallied at least 11 quarterback takedowns every year from 2010-12 in Seattle. He was going to serve as a situational pass rusher this season. Clemons turns 35 in October.

Seahawks GM John Schneider confirms recently re-signed DE Chris Clemons will be a situational pass rusher in 2016.

This isn't a secret for a team with Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett, but Schneider thinks Clemons played too many snaps (675) for the Jaguars last season. "We recognized that, you could kind of see it on tape," Schneider said. Going on 35, Clemons struggled mightily to generate heat in 2015. It's not a guarantee he makes the 53-man roster.

Seahawks signed DE Chris Clemons, formerly of the Jaguars.

He's going back to the team he won a Super Bowl with in 2013. Clemons logged eight sacks in his first year with Jacksonville but slumped to just three in 2015. He'll give Seattle some depth behind top pass-rushers Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett.

Free agent DE Chris Clemons is setting up a visit with the Dolphins.

Clemons has also visited the Seahawks since being released by Jacksonville in early March. Clemons managed three sacks in 16 games for the Jaguars last season. He will not be an impact signing.

Free agent DE Chris Clemons will visit the Seahawks.

It would be a homecoming for the 13-year veteran, who spent 2010-13 playing for Pete Carroll. Clemons would be a situational pass rusher in the Pacific Northwest.

Jaguars released DE Chris Clemons.

The move clears another $4 million in cap space for the Jaguars, who are now pushing $90 million. It's now or never for the Gus Bradley era in Jacksonville. Signed to a four-year, $17.5 million deal in 2014, Clemons tallied eight sacks in 2014 before registering just three last season. That will typically get a 34 year old due over $3 million released. The Jags' top offseason priority should be rebooting their pass rush.

The Jaguars are expected to release DE Chris Clemons this offseason.

Clemons has been a total flop in Jacksonville since reuniting with coach Gus Bradley. He recorded eight sacks last season, but three came in one game against a hopeless Colts offensive line. This season, the 34-year-old has just three QB takedowns and has been PFF's worst edge rusher. Rookie Dante Fowler will take over for Clemons after missing 2015 with a torn ACL.

Jaguars RE Chris Clemons will resume practicing on Monday.

Clemons has been out all preseason with an undisclosed injury. Clemons is expected to serve as the Jaguars' LEO rusher this season.
Sat, Aug 15, 2015 01:19:00 PM

Jaguars RE Chris Clemons will miss the preseason opener.

"I would doubt he would play in the opener," coach Gus Bradley said. "I wouldn't count on that." Clemons missed the first day of training camp for personal reasons and remains without a timetable to return. Andre Branch will continue to replace Clemons as Jacksonville’s LEO rusher.
Fri, Aug 7, 2015 08:04:00 PM

Coach Gus Bradley declined to give a timetable on when RE Chris Clemons will be cleared to practice.

Clemons is currently on active/NFI after he missed the first day of training camp for personal reasons. "I won’t get into that,’’ Bradley said. "The injury thing we knew in talking to him that it could be a strong possibility. There’s still some things we need to work with him personally but he’s here and I appreciate that." With Clemons sidelined, Andre Branch is working as the first-team LEO rusher.
Sat, Aug 1, 2015 04:45:00 PM

Jaguars RE Chris Clemons reported to training camp Friday.

Clemons didn't report on Thursday with an unknown "personal issue," and coach Gus Bradley wanted to see some "urgency" out of the veteran after he sat out all of OTAs and minicamp. After losing No. 3 overall pick Dante Fowler to a torn ACL, the Jaguars are again counting on 33-year-old Clemons for pressure.
Fri, Jul 31, 2015 08:44:00 AM

Jaguars RE Chris Clemons did not report for the first day of training camp.

Coach Gus Bradley insisted Clemons was dealing with a personal issue. But this is a guy that skipped the voluntary portion of the offseason, presumably to protest his contract. "My hope is we can work through this. I talked to him last night and again this morning. Hopefully we can come up with a decision to speed this up a little quicker. I don’t see this as a situation that’s extended. ... We’re sensitive toward [it being a personal issue], but we also need some urgency," Bradley said.
Thu, Jul 30, 2015 12:35:00 PM

Jaguars RE Chris Clemons reported to mandatory minicamp.

He also checked in 17 pounds lighter than last season, weighing 248 at 6-foot-3. Clemons skipped OTAs, but didn't want to risk fines. He's owed $5 million this year in salary and bonuses. The Jags are in the somewhat awkward position of having to lean heavily on Clemons after drafting his replacement, only for first-round pick Dante Fowler to tear his ACL at rookie camp.
Mon, Jun 15, 2015 11:52:00 PM

Jaguars RE Chris Clemons skipped all nine of the team's OTAs but is expected to report to next week's minicamp.

The workouts are "voluntary," and Clemons was likely just resting his soon-to-be 34-year-old body. While Clemons may have entered the offseason on the bubble, the Jaguars badly need him again after losing first-round edge rusher Dante Fowler to a torn ACL. Clemons had eight sacks last season.
Fri, Jun 12, 2015 08:44:00 AM

Jaguars signed DE Chris Clemons, formerly of the Seahawks, to a four-year, $18 million contract.

Jacksonville will field an all-ex-Seattle end pairing of LE Red Bryant and RE Clemons in 2014. Clemons is a "Leo" outside rusher, a defensive end-outside 'backer hybrid position in the Gus Bradley/Pete Carroll scheme. He shouldn't be relied upon for more than 60 percent or so of the Jaguars' defensive snaps going on age 33, but still has some juice in the tank. Clemons posted 4.5 sacks as an 11-game starter last year, and received positive pass-rush grades from Pro Football Focus. He figures to share time with Andre Branch on the edge.
