Cliff Avril to Seahawks
 
Seahawks agreed to terms with DE Cliff Avril on a two-year, $15 million contract.

That escalated quickly. Avril's market had been dead quiet to this point, but the Seahawks came out of nowhere to snap him up. Avril turns 27 in April. He has 29 sacks and nine forced fumbles over the last three seasons. Although some have attributed Avril's success to drawing single teams next to Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley, Lions GM Martin Mayhew thought enough of Avril's edge-rush ability to pay him over $10 million in 2012 as Detroit's franchise player. In Seattle, Avril will add to the Seahawks' pass rush along with Bruce Irvin as Chris Clemons tries coming back from a torn ACL. Avril will be an immediate candidate for 9-12 sacks.

I can't lie... I love what Seattle has done over the past couple of years. While their overall record doesn't really show how great of a job they've done, they're built to compete for a long period of time. Their front office has hit with their draft picks and free agents.

Seattle is poaching the NFC North hard - it's an arms race between them and 49ers in the NFC West.

I'm more agreeable with seeing him at $7.5mil a season then $10mil a season, but I think they still overpaid by $2.5mil a season or so.

It looks like the Seahags are doing anything they can to win.

That'll be a rough game up in Seattle.

... shorter contract/less money then the Lions offered Avril as well. Looks like he's doing anything he can to win. I have a feeling it's gonna' work out pretty well for him in Seattle.
