For his exemplary performance on the field, the Seahawks have nominated Avril for the coveted 2017 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award, named after the founding owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pro Football Hall of Famer, Art Rooney Sr. What I like about him is when he encourages a player, or corrects a player, he is correcting himself.

The latter quality has been just as inherent in Robison as the instincts that helped him make the play. He doesn't complain to referees or get into skirmishes with opposing players or coaches.

The Rooney Award is now in its fourth year.

The award, which honors players who display excellent sportsmanship on the field, is voted on by National Football League players. Those eight will be listed on the Pro Bowl ballot when players vote December 15 (a team can not vote for its own player), and the victor will be announced during the NFL Honors show February 3, the eve of Super Bowl LII.

The victor of the award will be announced during the NFL Honors show on February 3, 2018 on NBC. A panel from the NFL Legends Community, made up of former NFL players, will select eight finalists, with four coming from each conference. "The fact it's being voted on by the players, well, the recipient can feel good about it because it's voted on by his peers".
