Anwar Richardson of MLive.com reports that “at least four teams” have shown interest in free agent DE Cliff Avril.
Richardson adds that it’s unknown whether or not the Lions are among the interested teams in Avril.
Avril, 27, is clearly among the most sought after free agents and the fact that NFL teams believe he can play 3-4 outside linebacker only adds to his value.
He reportedly rejected a three-year deal worth $30 million and included as much as $20 million guaranteed last season. Clearly, that was the right move for him given that the Lions wound up paying him a franchise tender of $10.605 million last season and he’s now poised to beat those figures by a large margin.
The Browns are rumored to be one of the teams with serious interest in Avril.
We have him listed as the No. 4 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
