Per a story on ESPN today we've learned from Mike Sando that the Seahawks have reached an agreement with hold-out defensive end Chris Clemons.
On Seahawks' new deal with Chris Clemons es.pn/MjG9DP— Mike Sando, ESPN.com (@espn_nfcwest) July 23, 2012
I'm personally glad we see Clemons back in the fold. This is a good thing for the Seahawks pass rush, and the mentoring of 2012 NFL first round draft pick Bruce Irvin.The veteran defensive end reached agreement Monday on a multi-year contract extension to remain with the Seattle Seahawks, according to sources. Contract terms were not immediately known. An announcement was expected Tuesday.
Clemons has 11 sacks in each of the Seahawks’ past two seasons, and is obviously the right man for Pete Carroll & Gus Bradley's LEO position.
Sando goes on to say Clemons' contract agreement leaves Seattle without many contractual question marks on defense heading into 2012. He says Jason Jones is a FA in 2013, and LeRoy Hill & Barrett Ruud are also ONLY signed thru 2012.
Details to follow on Tuesday.
