Free agent S Chris Clemons worked out for the Falcons.
After losing SS William Moore (shoulder) to short-term I.R. this week, the Falcons are in dire need of safety help. For now, 2013 seventh-rounder Kemal Ishmael is expected to start next to FS Dwight Lowery. Clemons is probably the best safety on the street. He started 32-of-32 games for Miami from 2012-2013.

The Dolphins have expressed interest in free agent S Chris Clemons.

Clemons was a surprise cut by Houston last week. With Reshad Jones suspended the first four games, he could be brought back as veteran depth behind Jimmy Wilson. Miami likely won't consider signing Clemons until after Week 1 to avoid having to pay him a guaranteed salary.
Sep 6 - 10:07 PM

Texans released FS Chris Clemons.

The move is a big surprise after Houston gave Clemons $450,000 guaranteed in March. As Reshad Jones will open the season on suspension for the Dolphins, Miami might want to look into bringing Clemons back. The Texans' free safety job will likely now go to Kendrick Lewis, a longtime Romeo Crennel favorite.
Aug 31 - 4:21 PM

Texans signed FS Chris Clemons to a two-year, $2.7 million contract.

Houston its overhauling its safety corps, landing Clemons and Kendrick Lewis, and bringing back Danieal Manning on a pay cut. Sophomore D.J. Swearinger also returns. Clemons, 28, started 32-of-32 games for the Dolphins the past two seasons. Although he isn't a big-time playmaker, Clemons can cover the deep middle and is a productive tackler, racking up 191 stops the past two seasons. He was a top-20 safety in Pro Football Focus' 2013 ratings.
Mar 28 - 5:07 PM

Free agent FS Chris Clemons is visiting the Texans.

Clemons has a connection with new Texans director of pro personnel Brian Gaine from their Miami days. Clemons' market has been extremely quiet but he's one of the better players available. He can cover the back end and would provide an upgrade on Shiloh Keo. Clemons is our top remaining free-agent safety.
Mar 28 - 10:59 AM

Free agent FS Chris Clemons is visiting the Lions.

The Lions are on the prowl for a safety and visited with Thomas DeCoud earlier on Friday before he left town without a deal. Clemons is our No. 1 remaining free-agent safety, though he's not a real playmaker or ballhawk. He's above average in coverage on the back end but struggles at times versus the run.
Mar 21 - 12:25 PM

The New York Daily News reports free agent FS Chris Clemons is "on the Jets' radar."

He'd be a better schematic fit for the Jets than Donte Whitner, as Clemons is a true center-field safety and would complement in-the-box type SS Dawan Landry. Clemons is an excellent cover guy, though he's a bit shaky in run support and hasn't been a playmaker. The Dolphins are not expected to re-sign him.
Mar 9 - 5:49 PM

ESPN Dolphins blogger James Walker reports that re-signing free agent FS Chris Clemons "isn't a priority."

Clemons started all 16 games last season, finishing with 93 tackles and an interception. The Dolphins are looking to upgrade at safety opposite Reshad Jones, so Clemons will be allowed to test the open market. Clemons figures to be limited to one-year deals in free agency. He turns 29 this offseason.

Feb 22 - 8:03 PM

Dolphins re-signed FS Chris Clemons to a one-year, $2.75 million contract.

Clemons was a 16-game starter for the Dolphins' No. 21 defense last season, grading out above-average against both the pass and the run. His return guarantees some stability in a secondary that could lose free agent Sean Smith.
Tue, Mar 12, 2013 05:48:00 PM

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have held "extensive discussions" with free agent FS Chris Clemons about re-signing.

Clemons, 27, started all 16 games in 2012 and recorded a career-high 99 tackles, while being above-average against both the pass and the run. Clemons and Brian Hartline are the only two players out of a slew of their own potential free agents that the Dolphins have had substantive talks with about coming back.
Mon, Feb 11, 2013 06:56:00 PM

The Dolphins have expressed interest in re-signing impending free agent FS Chris Clemons.

Clemons, 27, started all 16 games in 2012 for the first time in his career, racking up a career-high 99 tackles. Miami has also looked into locking up Clemons' safety counterpart, Reshad Jones, to a long-term deal. The Dolphins have over $45 million in cap space this offseason.
Sun, Jan 20, 2013 12:39:00 PM

Dolphins FS Chris Clemons exited Sunday's Week 15 game with a first-quarter stinger injury.

He's considered questionable to return. Usual slot cornerback Jimmy Wilson has moved to safety, bookending SS Reshad Jones in the meantime.
Sun, Dec 16, 2012 01:47:00 PM

Chris Clemons is running as the Dolphins' first-team strong safety at OTAs.

Reshad Jones is the free safety. Promising CB convert Jimmy Wilson and ex-Vikings SS Tyrell Johnson will push Clemons in training camp, but he's the favorite for now. Per Pro Football Focus, Clemons played only 21 snaps in 2011.
Thu, May 31, 2012 10:02:00 AM

Dolphis FS Chris Clemons is expected to be active this week for the first time since sustaining a hamstring injury in the season opener.

Clemons encountered numerous setbacks with the hamstring injury. He's since lost his starting job to Reshad Jones, who is currently sidelined by a knee injury. Tyrone Culver is penciled in as the starter opposite Yeremiah Bell this week.
Fri, Oct 21, 2011 12:19:00 PM

Dolphins FS Chris Clemons has not practiced since injuring his hamstring in Monday's loss to the Patriots.

He's officially questionable for Week 2, but isn't likely to take the field against the Texans. Beaten out for the Dolphins' starting free safety job by Reshad Jones during training camp, Clemons is off the IDP radar after notching 61 tackles and one interception in 2010.
