Bengals move quickly, agree to terms with Clements

It didn’t take long for Nate Clements to find a new NFL home.

The cornerback, officially released by the 49ers on Saturday, agreed to terms with the Bengals later in the day, according to a league source.

Clements spent four seasons with the 49ers, starting 53 games, after signing an eight-year, $80 million contract in 2007. His release cleared roughly $7 million in base salary and around $17 million in salary-cap space for the 49ers.

Clements wasn’t on the market for long, as the Bengals — looking to fill the void left by Jonathan Joseph‘s departure to the Texans — quickly moved on the 10-year veteran, who started all 16 games last season.
