Chris Clemons has been noticeably absent from Seahawks’ OTAs and according to ESPN Seattle’s Brock Huard, this is an “abundantly clear” sign that Clemons is seeking a new contract and could hold out into mandatory minicamps. Clemons is owed 4.5 million in the final year of his contract, which makes him highly underpaid. Clemons has surprisingly emerged as one of the better defensive ends in the league over the last 2 years under Pete Carroll, combining for 24 sacks, 18 quarterback hits, and 97 quarterback pressures.However, the Seahawks won’t want to pay him for what he’s already done as he turns 31 in October so he might not get the big contract he’s seeking. The Seahawks also used a 1st round pick on a defensive end, Bruce Irvin, in the 2012 NFL Draft with the intention of possibly having him take over in Clemons’ role long term.
