Renton, WA (SportsNetwork. Corentin Tolisso Jersey .com) - The Seattle Seahawks continue to take steps towards keeping their outstanding defense intact, with the reigning Super Bowl champions signing pass rusher Cliff Avril to a four-year extension on Friday. The move comes just one day after the Seahawks announced an agreement with linebacker K.J. Wright on a four-year, $27 million extension. Both Wright and Avril were slated to become unrestricted free agents at seasons end. According to NFL.com, Avrils new deal is worth $28.5 million and continues $16 million in guarantees. Avril signed a two-year contract with the Seahawks in March of 2013 and made an impact in his first season with the club, notching eight sacks and five forced fumbles over 15 regular-season games. The veteran end has recorded 4 1/2 sacks and 20 tackles while starting all 14 contests this season. Cliff has been instrumental in what weve been building on the defensive side of the ball and we are excited that he?ll be with us for another four years, said Seahawks general manager John Schneider. He has been relentless in his approach to the game and his passion for winning is contagious. This is another great day for the Seahawks and the 12s. Avril spent his first five NFL seasons with Detroit prior to signing with the Seahawks. The 28-year-old amassed career bests of 11 sacks and six forced fumbles with the Lions in 2011, then registered 9 1/2 sacks the following year. David Alaba Bayern Munich Jersey .

Observant Muslims avoid food and liquids from dawn to dusk during Ramadan but can, and often do, skip it if travelling or doing hard physical labour. Some devout Muslim athletes choose to fast during training or competition, but it can create selection difficulties for the coaches in team sports. Halilhodzic, who has testy relations with sections of the Algerian media and its football association, threatened to leave a news conference Sunday if questions persisted on the topic. He said critics were using the issue to "try and raise hatred of me and my family. This is really disgusting." The national football association released a statement denying a report in Algerias leading football newspaper suggesting that Halilhodzic, a Muslim, had ordered players not to fast. Its a potentially sensitive allegation in the mostly Muslim country. The federation said Halilhodzic had been "very respectful" of the religion in his three years at the helm of the national team. The veteran coach, a French-Bosnian, said fasting was a "private issue and players will do exactly as they wish." "When you ask this question you lack respect and ethics. I would like this to stop. Stop this controversy. Talk about football," he said, in response to repeated questions at the official pre-match news conference. "And stop asking me about RRamadan, otherwise I will get up and leave. Kingsley Coman Bayern Munich Jersey. ." The match Monday kicks less than an hour before sunset in the southern Brazilian city of Porto Alegre. The Algeria lineup has been impressive in its three group games, and had its best attacking display so far in a 4-2 win over South Korea. Halilhodzic started that match with five new players following its opening 2-1 defeat to Belgium. They followed that up with a 1-0 win over Russia to reach the knockout rounds for the first time. "We will do everything we can to try and win this match, but (the Germans) are of a higher quality, more experienced and basically better than us," Halilhodzic said. "We shall prepare for this game as the most important in our career. We will give it our all." Algeria shocked West Germany 2-1 in the group stages of the 1982 World Cup, in what was a colossal upset at the time. But the team didnt make it through to the qualifying rounds after the Germans and Austria played out a mutually advantageous result in their last group match in one of the most infamous World Cup episodes. The build up to Mondays match has focused on whether this is now the opportunity for Algeria to avenge what has become known as the "Disgrace of Gijon." But Halilhodzic and Germany coach Joachim Loew downplayed that Sunday, noting that the vast majority of players were not born when it occurred. "This is history. There are many things that occur in football. I would like this wonderful championship to finish in a different way," Halilhodzic said.
