The Seattle Seahawks have released defensive end Chris Clemons.
Clemons was a member of the Seahawks for the past four years. He only missed two games in his entire four-year career.
By releasing Clemons, the Seahawks save $7 million in cap space. He also had a successful return to the team last year after suffering a torn ACL in 2012.
In 2013, he had 4.5 sacks and a forced fumble in 14 games, including 11 starts. He has had 33.5 sacks over the past three years.
Now with the Seahawks having Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril locked up to long-term deal, the Hawks are moving on without Clemons.
With Jason Babin deciding to void the final two years of his contract a few days ago, Clemons is going to be linked to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Former Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley is the Jaguars head coach.
The 32-year-old has never played for a team in Florida. And if he signs with the Jaguars, that would be his first team in Florida.
He has played for the Washington Redskins, Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Eagles, before being traded to the Seahawks.
