Source: Texans, Clemons agree to 2-year deal

Safety Chris Clemons has signed a two-year, $2.7 million contract with the Houston Texans that includes $450,000 in guaranteed money, a source told ESPN.com.
Clemons, who turns 29 in September, spent the first five years of his career with the Miami Dolphins. He was a fifth-round draft pick in 2009, back when Brian Gaine, the Texans’ director of pro personnel, was with the Miami Dolphins. He started all 16 games for the Dolphins in 2012 and 2013, during which time he caught three interceptions and made 191 tackles.
Clemons visited Houston on Friday.
Among the safeties currently on the Texans’ roster is veteran Danieal Manning, who was signed to a four-year deal worth $20 million back in 2011. Manning, who is due $4.5 million, with a salary cap charge of $6 million, for 2014, was asked by the team to take a pay cut in the final year of his contract, sources said.
Clemons salary with the Texans will be similar to the salary offered to Manning in his pay cut.Previously covered Texans for Houston Chronicle and Jaguars for Florida Times-Union
