Bennett, Sherman helped Seahawks recruit Chris Clemons

Every weekday morning, we'll round up local and national Seattle Seahawks-related links.

Defensive end Chris Clemons said Michael Bennett and Richard Sherman reached out to him after he was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Via Brady Henderson of 710 ESPN Seattle:

Clemons said Richard Sherman and Michael Bennett called him after he was released in March, halfway through a four-year, $17.5 million contract. He said they had a few "very, very very intriguing" conversations about another Super Bowl run. In need of a pass-rusher after losing Bruce Irvin in free agency, the Seahawks brought Clemons in for a physical. He then made his decision to sign with Seattle after a dinner at his house with Bennett and Bennett's wife.

Clemons said he doesn't know if he would have ended up back in Seattle had Bennett and Sherman not reached out to him.


Quarterback prospect Vernon Adams is embracing comparisons to Russell Wilson:


Former Seahawks QB Matt Flynn tells FoxSports.com that he doesn't think Colin Kaepernick should take less money:

"It's a tough situation. I know that as a player you always have to get your money while you can," Flynn told FOX Sports on Tuesday. "Teams are going to get their money when they can. That's just business. You just have to get it when it's there."

"Maybe he didn't think his opportunity was going be good [in Denver]. The Broncos have a pretty stacked team so you have to think that you do have a good opportunity there," Flynn added. "But it also depends on how much money he'd be leaving on the table."
