The quiet has ended for Cliff Avril.
According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the Lions pass-rusher has agreed to a new deal with the Seahawks. He’s en route to the Pacific Northwest, and will sign his deal when he arrives.
The addition is huge for the Seahawks, whose defense changed when defensive end Chris Clemons blew out his knee in the playoff win over the Redskins.
Adding Avril gives them a solid pass-rush presence, the same kind of boost they gave their offense with the trade for Percy Harvin.
