Clemons has been released by the Cardinals, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.
Clemons appeared in just eight games over the past two seasons, hardly occupying a meaningful place on the Cardinals' roster. While that reality makes his release rather unsurprising, the 30-year-old did put together back-to-back seasons with at least 93 tackles prior to arriving in Arizona, so it'll be interesting to see if he earns a shot elsewhere.
The Cardinals have deemed the following players as inactive for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Panthers: Drew Stanton, Brittan Golden , Chris Clemons , Jonathan Cooper, Alameda Ta'amu, Anthony Steen , and Kareem Martin.
Cooper has missed the past two games for Arizona with a wrist injury.
The Cardinals are 5 1/2-point underdogs for Saturday's game.
The Cardinals have listed QB Drew Stanton, WR Brittan Golden, S Chris Clemons, LB Larry Foote, G Jonathan Cooper, G Anthony Steen and DE Kareem Martin as inactive Week 17 against the 49ers.
Stanton was ruled out prior to Sunday due to a knee injury. Foote came into the contest listed as doubtful. He's dealing with a knee issue. Jonathan Cooper, who entered the game questionable with a wrist injury, will not play. The other four players listed are healthy scratches.

Former Dolphins strong safety Chris Clemons is visiting the Lions on Friday, according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.
Detroit is looking to improve what has been a porous secondary. Clemons has been a full-time starter since arriving in the league in 2009. He exceeded 90 tackles in both of the last two seasons with Miami.
Seattle's defensive line could look a little different in 2014. USA Today has the scoop on the Seahawks' cap situation and notes that linemen Red Bryant and Chris Clemons are both candidates for a restructured salary, if not a release.
Bryant is due a $3 million roster bonus along with a $4.5 million base salary. His total cap number is $8.5 million. Clemons, 32, is due to make $7.5 million in 2014 with a $9.7 million cap number.
If the team wants to re-sign Michael Bennett and Tony McDaniel, two free agents, they'd be wise to find cap space for them.
