Even if Cliff Avril is able to play again, there's no guarantee it would be with the Seahawks. His age and salary would have made him a potential salary-cap casualty this offseason even before his neck injury. Avril will turn 32 in April and has one year left on his contract. It includes a $7 million base salary and only $500,000 in dead money, meaning the Seahawks would save a considerable amount against the cap by releasing him.
