ESPN.com is reporting that the Seahawks and sacks leader Chris Clemons have agreed to a multi year contract.

Mike Sando at ESPN.com is reporting that the Seahawks and defensive end Chris Clemons have agreed on a contract extension.

The veteran defensive end reached agreement Monday on a multi-year contract extension to remain with the Seattle Seahawks, according to sources. Contract terms were not immediately known. An announcement was expected Tuesday.

Suffice to say that Clemons, 30, can report to training camp with roster security that didn’t exist previously.

Clemons had been scheduled to earn $4 million in 2012, the final year of his contract. That number fell to $3 million when Clemons missed the mandatory camp thanks to language in the deal Clemons first signed while with Philadelphia in 2008.

Those details will become footnotes now that Clemons has a new deal with Seattle.

Contract terms were not available.

Clemons did not attend the spring minicamp or organized team activity practices while the club and his agent worked on a new deal. He is the first defensive end to have back-to-back seasons with double-digit sacks for the Seahawks since Michael Sinclair in 1997 and 1998.
