Seahawks lock up DE Cliff Avril to four-year, $28.5M extension

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/19/14) The Seahawks have signed defensive end Cliff Avril to a four-year contract extension worth $28.5 million with $16 million guaranteed, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports.

Avril was set to become a free agent at the end of the season before signing an extension. Since joining the Seahawks in 2013, the 28-year-old pass-rusher totaled 40 tackles, 12 1/2 sacks and six forced fumbles over 29 games.

Pete Carroll confident Seahawks will improve pass rush

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/23/14) The Seahawks have totaled just seven sacks through their first six games. Though, coach Pete Carroll remains confident in the defense, especially pass rushers Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett, who have combined for no sacks in the last four games.

"These guys have rushed really hard and been very aggressive," Carroll said of his starting defensive ends, per ESPN. "I’ve looked at every one of their rushes and situations and I think we’re going to count on those guys to continue to do what they’re doing and try to help around them."

Carroll said the team will try to make changes to improve the pass rush.

"We’ve got to get Mike active inside and get him to be the disruptor that he can be," Carroll said, hinting they might use Bennett on more snaps as a defensive tackle. "We need to help him with some stuff there, some stuff scheme-wise we’ll tweak here and there. Those guys are bringing it. In my mind it’s going to happen and we’ll just keep working until it does because we know it’s there."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/3/14) Without blitzing, the Seahawks made Peyton Manning uncomfortable in the pocket. Defensive end Cliff Avril led the way with five quarterback hurries and two hits on his 32 pass rushing snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.

End Chris Clemons had three hurries, a sack and a hit, and lineman Michael Bennett added four hurries.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/27/14) Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril, who's in the first year of a two-year, $13 million deal, said he'd love to stay in Seattle long-term. “I definitely don’t want to go into free agency again," he told ProFootballTalk.com.

"But,you know, we’ll see how it goes, how it works out, but I would definitely love to be out here, you know it’s a great place to be, stadium is amazing, team is good, I would love to be out here.”

Avril had eight sacks and five forced fumbles in 15 games this season.

Seahawks' investment in defensive line paying off

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/14/14) The Seahawks spent a whopping 27 percent of their salary cap on defensive linemen, including signing ends Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett, and the investment paid off, reports ESPN.com. Seattle led the NFL by pressuring opposing quarterbacks on 33 percent of their dropbacks.

Avril had eight sacks and five forced fumbles in the regular season, adding a half-sack, a pass breakup and drawing a key holding penalty in the win over New Orleans. Bennett had 8.5 sacks in the regular season. He had two forced fumbles, a half-sack and six tackles in the playoff win.
