Cliff Avrill - May wanna play in a 3-4 now
 
Quote:

Defensive end Cliff Avril has played for five seasons in the NFL for the Detroit Lions in their 4-3 defensive scheme. Just because heís been in the 4-3, donít pigeon-hole him as someone who canít be helpful to a 3-4 team.

Avril told Michigan Live that he is willing and believes he could make the switch to a 3-4.

Cliff Avril Willing to Switch to 3-4 Now Makes Sense in New Orleans | Bleacher Report
We might be able to get him for about 10 million/season!!!

That would be cool. Damn salary cap situation. Just puts more pressure on really nailing it in the draft since we can't really sign free agents.

Avril is right at the age and production level where he'll never have more leverage than he does now. I can't imagine he'd take a discount, even for the chance to win. But if he's one of those rare guys who really just wants a ring that bad, then it would be nice to have him.

Only $10M/season???

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

He might still bite... he has let us know in the past that he doesn't hold Avril in very high regard, and has warned against overpaying for his services.

:rofl:, patience, I'm out taking advantage of the ice (fishing) while the lake is still frozen over, so I didn't get to it until this morning, :lol: ... I was reading, "only $10mil a season", "that would be cool", "Avril is at the right age and production level", "sign him up for 5yrs" and I'm sitting here thinking, "WTF!!! :shock:, am I wrong about Cliff Avril?". :lol:.

Touche', :mrgreen: ... 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, :lol:.

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.

Yeah, that's something you have to consider with any Detroit player given the locker room issues they've had the past few seasons, but I honestly don't think Avril was a big part of that. 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, :lol:.
