(1090 The Fan) — Both Red Bryant and Chris Clemons chose the same path after being released by the Seattle Seahawks: head to Jacksonville to reunite with Gus Bradley.

Before becoming the Jaguars head coach, Bradley was the Seahawks defensive coordinator from 2009 through 2012.  

On Thursday, Jacksonville agreed to a four-year deal with Clemons — one of the several moves the team hopes will lead to a stronger defense.

Seattle released Clemons in a cost-cutting move Wednesday. 

After failing to find success in Oakland and Philadelphia, Clemons thrived in Seattle under Bradley. He was the team’s top pass rusher from 2010 to 2012, recording 33½ sacks and getting at least 11 each year.

Jacksonville signed former Seahawks defensive end Bryant last week.
