SEATTLE (AP) — Defensive end Chris Clemons and the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms on a multiyear deal that will keep Clemons under contract beyond the 2012 season.

Clemons' agent, Donal Henderson, confirmed the agreement in a text message to The Associated Press on Monday night, but didn't release any terms. The team had no announcement of Clemons' deal.

Clemons has been Seattle's top pass rusher the past two seasons, recording 11 sacks in both 2010 and 2011. But he was entering the final year of his contract and showed his displeasure with the situation by not participating in some offseason team activities and not attending Seattle's mandatory minicamp in mid-June.

At the time, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said the sides were working toward a new deal for Clemons.
