Summary

Avril's two year, $13 million contract signed in 2013 free agency (after turning down a three year, $30 million extension in 2012 from Detroit, the team that drafted him) proved to be a bargain. He played a pivotal role in the Super Bowl bludgeoning of the Broncos, including the hit on Peyton Manning that caused the errant throw which led to Malcolm Smith's pick-six, and ultimately, game MVP honors. Perhaps underrated, few players have more than Avril's 47.5 sacks and 22 FFs since 2008. With fellow 2013 free agent DL signing, team sack leader Michael Bennett, he is used in heavy rotation. Avril nearly eclipsed Bennet's 8.5 sacks for the team lead with 8 sacks of his own. (May 25)
