Cliff had an amazing career and we are lucky to be part of his next chapter.”

Avril has played 10 seasons in the NFL with the last five coming as a member of the Seahawks. Avril's seen both sides of the NFL spectrum. He was a member of the Detroit Lions team that went 0-16 in 2008 and also won a Super Bowl with the Seahawks in 2013. He had 11.5 sacks in 2016 to earn a trip to the Pro Bowl for the first time in his career.

Avril's NFL career was put in peril due to a neck injury sustained in a Week 4 game against the Indianapolis Colts last season. The heel of quarterback Jacoby Brissett kicked Avril in the chin as he chased down Brissett from behind. It left Avril with a stinger that ultimately required surgery in November.
