Chris Clemons

Clemons is another Clemson kid who has played admirably for the Cardinals.  Clemons was only active for seven games in 2015 but he is a guy who is great to have on the bench as depth.  After being a starter in Miami for a few years, he hasn’t been able to crack the role as starter in Arizona.  Too much depth.

He is a nice part-time player who likely has seen his best playing days behind him but that doesn’t mean he can’t contribute.  If anyone goes down, I feel better with a guy like Clemons sitting there waiting to play.  I am a big believer in experience.  Clemons had very productive seasons in 2010, 2012, and 2013 with the Miami Dolphins.

I say chances are likely 50/50 though that he returns.  He’s an unrestricted free agent and will likely try to find a suitor who will allow him to start on a more regular basis.  He won’t be expensive to keep though.
