Report: Cliff Avril, Lions $2 Mil Per Year Apart On Long-Term Contract

As Lions defensive end Cliff Avril sits out Detroit’s OTA practices while waiting to come to a long-term deal with his team, it sounds like the two sides are not close to agreeing to a new contract.

Avril has been franchised at $10.6 million for the 2012 season, but he hasn’t signed the tag. He hopes he never has to sign it. For now, according to NFL.com, the Lions and Avril are $2 million apart per year on a potential new deal.

Writes Albert Breer: “The player’s side is looking for something with a yearly average exceeding the $10.605 million attached to the tender, over four years, which would top $42 million, with more than half of it guaranteed. The Lions have made several offers. But nothing’s close.”
