Jaguars Clean House; Release LG Zane Beadles and DE Chris Clemons

Chris Clemons

The Jaguars, just after they released left guard Zane Beadles, also announced they have released defensive end Chris Clemons, Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Clemons, who had two years left on his contract, was scheduled to count $4 million against the cap.

Clemons played for coach Gus Bradley and assistant coach Todd Wash in Seattle and won a Super Bowl with the Seahawks in 2013. He was released after the year and signed with the Jaguars. He had 11 sacks in 32 games for the Jaguars.

Although the Jaguars would disagree, Clemons, 34, was an off-season distraction in 2014 and 2015 because he was the only player to not regularly attend the voluntary off-season workouts. His roster spot was tenuous when the Jaguars drafted Dante Fowler third overall last year, but when Fowler sustained a season-ending knee injury, Clemons survived and then began the season as a starter because of Andre Branch’s MCL injury.

Clemons played 662 of 1,099 snaps last year and had three sacks, seven missed tackles and five penalties.

    None of these moves were too surprising.
