JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The Seattle to Jacksonville express is reportedly bringing in another former Seahawk for a visit with the Jaguars. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, defensive end Chris Clemons is headed to Jacksonville to visit with the team.
Clemons, who was released by the Seahawks earlier Wednesday, played under Jags head coach Gus Bradley from 2009-2012 when Bradley served as Seattle’s defensive coordinator.
The 11-year pro has 58 career sacks, 13 forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries. In 2013, after returning from an ACL tear suffered in the 2012 playoffs, Clemons appeared in 14 games for Seattle, totaling 4.5 sacks.
Clemons would be expected to improve a Jaguars pass rush that finished 2013 last in the NFL in total team sacks with just 31.
If Clemons were to sign with the Jaguars, he would join defensive lineman Red Bryant, who signed with the Jaguars Tuesday, corner back Will Blackmon, linebacker John Lotulelei, and safety Winston Guy who all came to Jacksonville from Seattle in the last year.
