Clemons still the only no-show at OTAs

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Chris Clemons is the lone no-show for the team's OTAs.

Clemons failed to attend a second straight day of the team's voluntary workouts at the practice facility Wednesday.

The Jaguars signed Clemons to a four-year, $17.5 million contract on March 13, a day after he was released by the Seattle Seahawks.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley listed Clemons as ''day to day.

''I did have a good conversation with him and I feel much better about it,'' Bradley said. ''It's unfortunate, I wish he was here, but I understand the reasoning. I didn't have as clear a reasoning yesterday. He has some personal things he's working out.''

Clemons was with the Seahawks from 2010-13 and worked under Bradley for three years when Bradley was Seahawks defensive coordinator. Clemons led the Seahawks in sacks with 11 in both 2010 and 2011.

Bradley was hired as Jacksonville's head coach in 2013.

The Jaguars will be without their top three draft picks for Thursday's practice. Blake Bortles, Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson left for Pasadena after Wednesday's workout to take part in the NFLPA Rookie Premiere on Thursday.
