The Seahawks and DE Chris Clemons have agreed on a multiyear contract extension, the team announced Tuesday.

The 30-year-old Clemons, whom Pro Football Weekly recently selected as the NFL's most underrated player, has notched 11 sacks in each of the past two seasons. He had missed the club's mandatory minicamp in June. Clemons was in the final year of his contract with a base salary of $4.5 million.

“Pete (Carroll), myself and the entire Seahawks family are very pleased to reward a player that has been a consistent difference-maker since we acquired him,” GM John Schneider said in the release that accompanied the announcement.

According to PFW Seahawks correspondent Clare Farnsworth of, only seven players in the league have more sacks that Clemons the past two seasons — the Cowboys’ DeMarcus Ware (35), Vikings’ Jared Allen (33), Eagles’ Jason Babin (30½), Chiefs’ Tamba Hali (26½), Ravens’ Terrell Suggs (25) and Falcons’ John Abraham and Dolphins’ Cameron Wake (22½ each).

According to's Mike Sando, the extension is three years long and will average $7 million annually.
