Cliff Avril not sure he'd take less money to stay with Lions

After racking up nearly 30 sacks over the past three seasons for the Detroit Lions, free agent defensive end Cliff Avril is primed to score a big contract this offseason, Justin Rogers of Mlive reports.

Avril has never hidden the fact he'd prefer to stay in Detroit, but he's not exactly offering a hometown discount to facilitate a deal.

"I don't know. It depends on the situation, honestly," Avril said in an interview with 'Pro Football Talk' on NBC Sports. "It depends on why I would be taking less money, first off. I don't know, but we just have to get the numbers going and we'll see. I really don't know if I would take less right now."

Asked to put a percentage on being in a Lions uniform next season, Avril cautiously said 50-50, admitting he really has no idea.

"I don't know right now. We're waiting to see what's going to go down. We have a little less than a month to try to figure some things out. Hopefully, we get it done."
