Avril’s release was expected and could mean the end of a 10-year career during which he was a standout player for the Seahawks and the Detroit Lions.

Avril arrived in Seattle before the 2013 season and instantly helped transform the Seahawks defense into one of the best in recent memory. He was part of a rotation at first but became a full-time starter in 2014. His best season came in 2016 when Avril had a career-high 11 陆 sacks and was voted to the Pro Bowl for the only time in his career.

Unlike the Blake Bortles fifth-year option decision before the quarterback signed a three-year deal, the Jaguars have the D-line depth to see if Fowler keeps ascending. Yannick Ngakoue, who starts ahead of Fowler, cornerback Jalen Ramsey and Myles Jack are ahead of him in the Jaguars’ line for extensions.

New York Giants Will Grier, QB, West Virginia: The former Florida transfer has a cannon and can wing it down the field. If he takes another step forward in his second year with Dana Holgerson, he could be highly-coveted. 3. New York Jets Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina: He missed a lot of 2017 with injury, but when Samuel plays he’s a high-impact guy who can take the top off of a defense. His one-handed touchdown snag in the Gamecocks’ season opener last year was ridiculous. The Jets need to get Sam Darnold a true No. 1 weapon to grow with.
