Cincinnati Inks Veteran Free Agent CB Nate Clements

The Bengals Saturday shored up their secondary, coming to terms with freee agent cornerback Nate Clements. He was released by the 49’ers earlier this week, allowing him to seek employment elsewhere.

It’s a good signing for the Bengals, as he will take the spot of Johnathan Joseph, who signed as a free agent with the Texans. Defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer, not happy about losing Joseph, sounded off about it and who would be able to step in for him.

Back in 2007 Clements inked an eight-year, $80 million deal that was pushed to a 10-year average with San Fran. In the end, Clements played out only half of the contract. The 10-year veteran spent six seasons in Buffalo before signing with the 49ers.

A 2001 first-round pick out of Ohio State by the Bills, Clements has 33 interceptions over his career.
