Seahawks release veteran defensive end


The cuts keep on coming. Moments ago it was reported by Albert Breer that the Seattle Seahawks have cut defensive end Chris Clemons.

Clemons will turn 33 years old in October and the move will save the Seahawks $7.5 million in cap room for 2014. For three straight seasons, he started every single game for Seattle.

Last week when I wrote about the possibility of Clemons being cut, I thought that the Jacksonville Jaguars would be his most likely destination. The Jags have since signed Red Bryant and are meeting with Walter Thurmond.

As soon as Clemons finds a new home we will bring you an update. At this rate he’s probably already on a plane to Florida. I don’t imagine that the Seahawks would have made this move unless a marquee free agent defensive end was on his way to Seattle. The rumors have mostly circled around Demarcus Ware and Jared Allen. We will have more as it comes in.

    I would say Seahawks has very good depth in defense so there are more options available for them. As long as Seahawks have winning record, the 12th man will be happy. Go Hawks!
