Lions DE Cliff Avril Has Interest From Four NFL Teams
Lions defensive end Cliff Avril has the interest of at least four NFL teams in free agency, according to sources.
There is no word if Detroit is among the teams fighting for Avril right now.
There are several teams searching for an elite pass rusher, while the Cleveland Browns reportedly planned to pursue Avril during free agency. Several 3-4 defensive teams, like Cleveland, were rumored to have interest in Avril prior to this weekend. Despite not playing outside linebacker in the NFL, Avril recently said he would not mind switching positions with another team.
"I think I can do it," Avril recently told MLive.com. "I thought I was going to be a 3-4 coming out, obviously. I ended up getting drafted to the Lions at the defensive end position. The weird thing is all the guys out of Purdue from the last few drafts who played end became 3-4 ends. I'm the only one out of all of those guys who played linebacker and became a defensive end. Maybe I'll join that club, if it's the case."
