For two weeks this summer, class was in session early each morning at the Athletic Form gym on 6th Avenue South in Seattle. The teacher? Cliff Avril, a now-former Seahawk and budding talk-show host on KJR-AM 950.
The student? Quinton Jefferson, a 2016 fifth-round draft pick, and one of the players the Seahawks are counting on to replace Avril and Michael Bennett, who from 2013-17 formed the core of the team’s defensive line.
