Seahawks sign Cliff Avril to 4-year, $28.5M extension The Seattle Seahawks' defense has emerged down the stretch this season as the most dominant force in football. Again. They are making sure that they keep their group together. Just one day after signing linebacker K.J. Wright to a multi-year deal, the Seahawks signed defensive end Cliff Avril to a four-year extension. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport broke the news, reporting the deal is worth $28.5 million with $16 million guaranteed. Avril would have been our choice as Super Bowl MVP last season, but this news does come as a bit of a surprise. Avril has only 4.5 sacks this season, although that number is deceiving. ProFootballFocus charts 38 quarterback hurries for Avril and nine quarterback hits. He's ranked as their seventh best pass rusher at defensive end, just behind teammate Michael Bennett. Avril and Bennett both arrived as free agent bargains in 2013 and have been re-signed at larger prices.
