Seahawks Daily Top 10: Cliff Avril’s pending payday, opening day plans, and more

Time for the 10. …

1, I wrote for today about Cliff Avril’s possible big payday following this season.

2, Also in our paper today is this on all the opening day fun, and this on the tough task of countering counterfeit Seahawks merchandise.

3, The daily wrapup from Seahawks.com also breaks down how of the offensive lines have looked this week (something we’re technically not supposed to pass along):

First team from left to right: Russell Okung, James Carpenter, Max Unger, J.R. Sweezy and Justin Britt.

Second team, from left tackle to right: Eric Winston, Wade Smith, Lemuel Jeanpierre, Stephen Schilling and Alvin Bailey.

Third team: Garry Gilliam, Caylin Hauptmann (who it notes sat out Wednesday), Greg Van Roten, Cory Brandon and Nate Isles.

The two interesting moves there are Bailey now playing backup RT and Winston at backup LT and Smith moving ahead of Hautpmann onto the second unit. Coaches said earlier this week the Bailey/Winston moves were just to get some more versatility. But we’ll see how that impacts roster decisions, as well. And Smith, a veteran signed just a few weeks ago, appears to be getting a real shot now at guard. I’d expect him to play a lot this week, as he saw substantially more time against the Chargers than he had against Denver.

4, More on Jerry Jones and DeAngelo Hall blaming the Seahawks for the new penalty emphasis.

5, The Packers are trying to keep the Seahawks from figuring out their hand signals.

6, Boo!! The Seahawks are among the leaders in overpriced beer at CenturyLink.

7, Lots of good updates here on the Bears, including that Jordan Palmer will be the second QB to see action.

8, Solid preview of the NFC West.

9, More appraisal of the Seahawks’ franchise value.

10, Fun breakdown of the impact of the Legion of Boom on fantasy receivers.
