Avril has been unable to do this from emily's blog

The Detroit Lions and Cliff Avril "haven't really talked all that much," according to the veteran defensive end. Dave Birkett of MUT 24 Coins the Detroit Free Press posted some quotes from Avril, a pending free agent, in which he re-affirmed that he'd like to remain with the Lions, but that contract talks apparently have not been prevalent in recent weeks.

According to the piece, the Lions and Brian Mackler, Avril's agent, met at the Madden NFL 24 Scouting Combine in February, but the talks haven't been ongoing since that point. It's unclear if the two sides have reached anything like an impasse, but the time is definitely running out on a deal.

If the Lions don't get Avril signed to an extension by 4 p.m. ET on March 12, when the new league year begins, then Avril will hit the open market and he'll be able to really test his value. For the past two seasons, Avril has been unable to do this. He was a restricted free agent cheap Madden 24 Coins after the lockout in 2011 and he played under the franchise tag in 2012.
