News: Clemons is not attending Jacksonville's organized team activities, the Florida Times-Union reports.
Impact: Clemons is an habitual no-show at voluntary OTAs, going back to his days in Seattle. The 33-year-old's job appeared to be in jeopardy when the Jaguars selected Dante Fowler with the third overall pick in the draft, but he tore the ACL in his left knee during the rookie minicamp and will miss the 2015 season. So, Clemons will probably retain his starting job, but head coach Gus Bradley is expecting him for mandatory minicamp that kicks off June 16.

News: Clemons skipped the first day of the team's organized team activities. Clemons was the only player missing from Jacksonville's 90-man roster Tuesday. Jaguars coach Gus Bradley spoke to Clemons in recent days and expressed his desire to have everyone in attendance for the voluntary workouts. But Clemons didn't show.
Impact: Since the workouts are voluntary, Clemons is under no obligation to attend. The 12-year veteran skipped voluntary OTAs last year in Jacksonville and previously with Seattle. Bradley said: "We want everybody here and he knows that. That's a choice he makes. ... I have faith in Chris Clemons. I know that he'll come back. He's never not come back ready to go, but I don't want to assume that. I would like to see him back here, but we'll work through it."
