Chris Clemons to visit Jaguars

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It appears the Jaguars may be tapping into the Seattle pipeline again.

Defensive end Chris Clemons, whom Seattle released on Wednesday afternoon, is apparently headed to Jacksonville for a visit, according to a report by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He has spent the past four seasons with the Seahawks and played under Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley when he was Seattle's defensive coordinator from 2009-2012.

The 32-year-old suffered a torn ACL during the 2012 playoffs but returned to play in 14 games in the regular season. However, he was clearly still affected by the injury. He had just 4.5 sacks last season after compiling 33.5 in the previous three seasons.

Clemons has 58 sacks and 13 forced fumbles in his nine-year career with Washington, Oakland and Seattle. He would bolster a Jaguars pass rush that has totaled just 51 sacks the past two seasons, including 20 in 2012.

The Jaguars signed former Seahawks defensive tackle Red Bryant last week.
