The Jacksonville Jaguars are continuing to revamp their defensive line by agreeing to terms with free agents Chris Clemons and Ziggy Hood.

Seattle released Clemons in a cost-cutting move Wednesday. His cross-country trek to Jacksonville reunites him with former Seahawks defensive coordinator and current Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley.

The 32-year-old Clemons is expected to sign a four-year deal following a physical Thursday. The 27-year-old Hood, who spent the last five years in Pittsburgh, also will sign Thursday.

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 Red Bryant last week.
