Duane Anthony Clemons[1] (born May 23, 1974[2]) is a former American Football defensive end who played in the National Football League between 1996 and 2005.[3] He was a first round selection in the 1996 NFL Draft out of the University of California by the Minnesota Vikings.[4]

He finished his NFL career with 49.5 Sacks. Despite struggling to see the field as a starter (16 starts in 4 years with Minnesota), Clemons proved a very capable sack artist. In 1997 he finished with 7.0 Sacks, 2 FF, and 24 Tackles. In 1999 he finished with a career best 9.0 Sacks and 36 Tackles. In 2000, he went to the Kansas City Chiefs where he finished with 7.5 Sacks and a career best 56 Tackles. The next year, 2001, he finished with 7.0 Sacks and 48 Tackles. In 2003 he found himself with the Cincinnati Bengals where he recorded 6.0 Sacks, a career best 4 pass deflections, and 42 Tackles. In 2004, he finished with 6.5 Sacks and 49 Tackles.

On September 8, 2008, Clemons signed with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League[5] and was assigned to their practice roster, but was released by the team on September 15, 2008.[6] He is currently the defensive line coach for the MidAmerica Nazarene University Pioneers. His son Butch Clemons is now following in his footsteps at Southwest High School.
