I'm sold, sign him up for at least 5 years!

Touche', ... you guys had me going there for a minute, I think a "should we bring him in for a look" post would have put me over the edge, .

I think Avril played linebacker in college, so I'm sure he thinks he can do it, but there's a reason they converted him to DE in the pros ... maybe he can't cover, IDK. I just know he's asking for way more than he's worth, at any position.

I think he's the kind of player that will blend into whatever locker room environment he's in, kind of like a chameleon ... now, if he only could truly play OLB at the NFL level, .
We don't need and should not want Cliff Advil now; not a fit, not the one we need, nope, nada, nyet and certainly not for 10mil; I wouldn't pay more than 2.5 for him because once he gets the big mo, he's gonna smash his @$$ like Will Smith!

I think we would bring him in just to increase the cost of any other team to sign him, thus reducing the amount of available cash that can be used to bid against us for the players we really want.
