CLIFF AVRIL RUMORS & GOSSIP

Seattle Seahawks: Why cornerback is still a need

After signing Cary Williams, the Seattle Seahawks have their four starting defensive backs in place. With that being said, cornerback is still a need for many reasons. I pointed that out in my previous article on the Cary Williams signing, but I’ll go into more detail in this article. To begin, it’s important to mention that teams don’t only play two or three cornerbacks. Most...

Seattle Seahawks DL Cliff Avril Zings Former Team--Detroit--in Epic Fashion

Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Cliff Avril is a happy man.

WATCH: Washington Redskins OL Morgan Moses Gets Smoked Off the Line By DE Seahawks Cliff Avril

The Washington Redskins will need to bring their 'A' game if they are going to beat the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football.

Seahawks must prepare for the 2015 contract hit

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril played only half the snaps last season, but still racked up 33 QB hurries, five forced fumbles and eight sacks and was a crucial weapon for Seattle’s 1# ranked defense.

Cliff Avril: From winless to Super Bowl contender

Six years ago, Cliff Avril was a rookie on arguably the worst team in NFL history: the 0-16 Detroit Lions. It’s amazing how much it has all come full circle for the defensive end, as he and the Seattle Seahawks are now just one win away from being a Super Bowl champion. Avril, a third-round pick by the Lions in 2008, has quickly developed into one of the league’s best pass rushers...

Avril, Bennett prove big additions for Seattle

Adding Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril to the Seattle Seahawks' defensive line has paid big dividends. The odd part is neither lineman is really serving the roles expected when Seattle general manager John Schneider signed the free agents in the offseason.
