It's back to Seattle for Chris Clemons.

The Seahawks on Friday agreed to terms with the veteran defensive end who started 59 games for the club from 2010 to 2013.

"Path to the Draft" previews the 2016 NFL Draft by providing in-depth expert analysis of the top prospects and each teams' needs.

Clemons spent the last two years in Jacksonville, where he notched 11 sacks over 23 starts for Jaguars coach and former Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley.

Clemons originally landed in Seattle back in 2010 as part of a trade with the Eagles. He piled up 11-plus sacks for three straight seasons before finishing with 4.5 takedowns during Seattle's Super Bowl-winning campaign in 2013.

At 34, Clemons looms more as a situational pass rusher for a nasty line that also includes Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril and run-stopper Ahtyba Rubin. We wouldn't be surprised to see Seattle look for additional help in this month's draft.

Here are other moves that went down on Friday and Saturday:

1. The Chiefs agreed to terms with defensive back Stevie Brown, his agent announced on Twitter. In addition, the team signed safety Jimmy Wilson, according to the Kansas City Star. Wilson started in six games with the Chargers last season.

2. Safety Patrick Chung signed a one-year extension with the New England Patriots that will keep him under contract for the next three seasons, a source informed of the deal told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.

3. The Houston Texans re-signed quarterback Brandon Weeden to a two-year, $4 million deal, a source with knowledge of the deal told NFL Media's Rand Getlin.

4. Former Jets running back Stevan Ridley signed with the Detroit Lions on a one-year deal, the team announced.

5. The Browns released Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports. The second-year cornerback is still recovering from a knee injury which prevented him from being a first-round pick in 2015.
