Lions issue statement on breakdown of talks with Cliff Avril

Defensive end Cliff Avril and the Lions broke off talks this afternoon for a new long-term contract.

Lions president Tom Lewand issued this statement:

“After extensive discussions with Cliff and his representative, we were unable to reach an agreement on a new contract by today’s 4 p.m. deadline. While we are disappointed that we could not execute a long-term deal, we do look forward to having Cliff with us this season under the terms of the Franchise tender.”
