The team isn't planning on letting Clemons walk out the door without putting his John Hancock on a contract. NFL Media's Albert Breer reported that the sides are close to a multiyear deal, according to a source close to the player.
Clemons was never himself in 2013 after suffering an ACL injury during the 2012 playoffs. He had 33.5 sacks in the three seasons prior to last year. A return to form in Jacksonville is not out of the question, even at 32 years old.
Clemons is plenty familiar with Bradley's defense and is an immediate upgrade on the current pass rushers on the Jags' roster.
