Several players have denied the reported rift centered around Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman, Pete Carroll, and a perceived lack of accountability for the infamous Super Bowl-losing interception. Defensive end Cliff Avril didn’t completely dispel the story, but he does believe the issue has been solved – if ever it existed.
“I think it’s all fake news,” Avril told “NFL No Huddle,” according to ProFootballTalk’s Charean Williams. “I think it’s all dead. It was a dead period so people needed something to talk about.
“At the same time, too, let’s be honest, there are 90 guys in the locker room right now. There is no way that 90 guys are going to always get along, and that’s just what it is. I’m pretty sure there are people at your job right now that’s way less than 90 that don’t get along. That’s just part of it. Now as far as it being Russ (Wilson) and (Richard) Sherm or Russ and whoever, I don’t think that’s true. I’ve never had any issues with Russ. I don’t think anybody has any issues with Russ.”
Avril, a Seahawk since 2013, admitted he did not read Wickersham’s story, though he has become familiar with it’s contents.
“I haven’t seen it,” said Avril. “I don’t know what they are referring to. Maybe they know something that I don’t know.”
