Jacksonville Jaguars are on the verge of signing former Seattle Seahawks defensive end Chris Clemons today, according the NFL Network

The Seahawks released the defensive end yesterday as they aim to trim their salary cap requirements and create space for improved deals for the likes of Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman. 

These necessities forced them to cut Clemons because he was due to make 9.6 million in the 2014 season. 

The Seahawks loss is the Jaguars gain, and Clemons has agreed to a four-year deal with the AFC South team. 

Albert Breer tweeted, "DE Chris Clemons has agreed to terms with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Will sign the deal today."

"Clemons will sign a four-year deal with the Jaguars."

The 32-year old only started 11 games in the 2013 season as he was forced to miss the first two games of the season due because he was still rehabbing an ACL surgery that he suffered in the playoff win against the Redskins.

Jacksonville need all the help they can get next year after they started the 2012 season 0-8, before managing to win four of their last eight games to end the season with a 4-12 record.
