The Seattle Seahawks have re-signed defensive end Chris Clemons, the team announced.

This will be Clemons' second stint with the Seahawks. He was initially acquired in 2010 in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for defensive end Darryl Tapp and a fourth-round draft pick, and then signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2014.

Clemons, 34, recorded 11.0 sacks in his last two seasons with the Jaguars, where he played for former Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley. He was a member of the Seahawks 2013 team that won Super Bowl XLVIII, when he recorded 4.5 sacks that season.
