Free agent DE Cliff Avril made it clear that he will not give the Lions a hometown discount on a long-term contract.

"There's no such thing as a hometown discount in the NFL," Avril said. "Once you can't play anymore, they're going to let you go, so you definitely have to strike gold when you can. ... You only hit free agency once or twice in your career, so you definitely have to take advantage of it." Look for Avril to be hit with the franchise tag if he can't come to agreement with the Lions over the next three weeks.

I really really like Avril... since college. I just can't see it happening here with the Saints having 3 big name free agents.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Yeah, and the Lions front office isn't going to play the F/A game this either, or so they've said. That makes sense though, if all's he's looking for is a big contract, the Saints aren't going to have room for him either ... he'll probably end up with the Cowgirls or some other team with deep pockets if they don't franchise him.

Both Shanle and Harper played every down last season, I also felt in G.W.'s style they were left in a bad way, way to much.

We won't pay anyone else good money before we pay our own. Whoever we bring in will have to understand that winning is worth more than money.

... well, I guess technically even after a signing it could still be considered a head's-up,
