Seahawks find way to make Chris Clemons happy

Earlier this offseason, it looked like Chris Clemons was not going to get the contract extension he’s been seeking.

But with training camp about to open, the Seattle Seahawks have made their top pass rusher happy, as Clemons will sign a three-year contract extension that is expected to run through the 2014 season, according to Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times.

Clemons, 30, missed most of the club’s offseason program including the mandatory veteran minicamp as he made it clear he wanted a new contract. He’s had 11 sacks in each of the last two seasons since coming over from the Philadelphia Eagles in a trade. Clemons had one year remaining on his current contract and was due to earn $4 million this season.
