Gus Bradley On Clemons’ No-Show: He’s Working Out ‘Personal Things’
(1090 The Fan / AP) — Former Seattle Seahawks defensive end is the lone-show for the Jacksonville Jaguars’ OTAs.
After missing a second straight day of the team’s voluntary workouts at its practice facility, Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said the situation is “unfortunate.”
“I wish he was here, but I understand the reasoning,” Bradley said Wednesday. “He has some personal things he’s working out.”
The Jaguars signed Clemons to a four-year, $17.5 million contract on March 13, a day after he was released by the Seahawks.
Clemons was with Seattle 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.
Clemons’ status is listed as “day to day.”
