Cliff Avril Rejected 3-Year, $30 Million Offer From Detroit Lions, According To Report

On Monday afternoon, the Detroit Lions and franchise tendered defensive end Cliff Avril were unable to come to terms on a long-term contract extension prior to the 4 p.m. deadline. However, it didn't come without a final attempt by the Lions to get a deal done.

According to NFL Network's Albert Breer, Avril rejected a final offer of three years and $30 million with $20 million guaranteed from the Lions.

This means that Avril will have to play the 2012 season under the franchise tender of $10.6 million and will have to wait until next offseason to sign a long-term deal.
