Jaguars expect Chris Clemons back for mandatory minicamp
The voluntary portion of the Jacksonville Jaguars' offseason program concluded with Thursday's OTA session. That means it's likely time for defensive end Chris Clemons to report to work.
With the Jaguars holding a mandatory minicamp beginning on Tuesday, the team expect Clemons will be on the field. The 33-year-old has skipped the team's voluntary practices up to this point. Last season, Clemons took part in three OTA practices, but this season, he elected to skip all nine workouts.
According to Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, head coach Gus Bradley was asked what he wanted to see from Clemons next week. Bradley joked he just wanted to see him.
"To get him out here and see how he is and the shape that he’s in," Bradley said. "Obviously, we’re not going to come out here and give him 10 reps and try to get him caught up, but to see him out here and around his teammates and see where he’s at (physically) will be good.”
Clemons would forfeit a workout bonus if he skips the mandatory camp.
