Sando: Seahawks Lock Up Clemons
Looks like Chris Clemons' decision to skip a mandatory minicamp won't cost him $1 million in 2012 salary, after all, Mike Sando writes. Blog
The Seahawks announced the deal Tuesday afternoon, although terms were not released. Clemons' agent, Donal Henderson, first confirmed the sides had agreed to a new contract on Monday night.
Clemons' new deal erases the question of whether the defensive end would hold out from the start of training camp after he skipped Seattle's mandatory minicamp in June. Clemons has recorded 11 sacks in each of the past two seasons.
Seattle general manager John Schneider said in a statement the team is pleased to reward someone who has been a "consistent difference maker since we acquired him."
