Cliff Avril: Health was more important than returning to the Super Bowl

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.

Six years ago, Cliff Avril was a rookie on arguably the worst team in NFL history: the 0-16 Detroit Lions.
