Lions Still Waiting On Avril

The Lions aren’t expecting defensive end Cliff Avril to participate in the mandatory minicamp next week, but they want it known that he is more than welcome.

“We know he’s working hard and we’d like to have him back out here,” coach Jim Schwartz said. “But business is business. As soon as we can we will welcome him right back and hope that he will pick up right where he left off last season.”

Avril has until July 16 to sign the $10.6 million franchise tender. In the meantime, he is hoping to work out a long-term deal with the Lions. If the tender is not signed and a long-term deal can’t be worked out, Avril would have to sit out the season. He cannot play for another team this season.
