The Jacksonville Jaguars are continuing to revamp their defensive line by agreeing to terms with Clemons.

Seattle released Clemons in a cost-cutting move Wednesday. His cross-country trek to Jacksonville reunites him with former Seahawks defensive coordinator and current Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley. The 32-year-old Clemons is expected to sign a four-year deal following a physical Thursday.

The Seattle Seahawks have released Clemons, a move that saves significant salary cap room but takes away one of their top pass rushers the past four seasons.

Clemons was set to make $7.5 million in base salary in 2014. He turned around his career when he arrived in Seattle via trade before the 2010 season. Placed into the LEO position on the defensive line, Clemons became Seattle's top pass rusher for his first three seasons with the Seahawks with a combined 33 1/2 sacks from 2010 to 2012. Last season, Clemons had only 4 1/2 sacks with the emergence of Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett.
