Anwar Richardson of MLive.com reported Saturday that "at least four teams" have shown "interest" in Lions DE Cliff Avril thus far.
It's not presently known whether or not the Lions are in the mix. With 39.5 sacks in five NFL seasons, Avril is one of top pass rushers in free agency. He's only played in a 4-3 scheme in his NFL career, but several 3-4 defensive teams, like Cleveland, were rumored to have interest in Avril prior to this weekend. Avril recently said he would not mind switching positions with another team. "I thought I was going to be a 3-4 coming out (of college)," said Avril, who turns 28 in April.
