For quite a while this offseason, it seemed like Chris Clemons wouldn't be returning to Century Link Field for the 2012-2013 season. But like every offseason, things can change fast, and the Seahawks have reached a multiyear deal with Chris Clemons.
According to NFL.com, the contract hasn't been signed and the terms are not immediately available.
Clemons seemed on his way out after skipping a mandatory minicamp - and in turn forfeiting $1 million in salary - and also turned down a two-year $14 million extension. He has been a bastion of consistency in the Seattle defense, starting all 32 games over the past two seasons and racking up 100 tackles in the process.
Seahawks first-round pick Bruce Irvin is expected to start across from Clemons in the upcoming season.
