Avril told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Friday he felt he was worth more than what the Lions offered him last year. Avril (rightfully) believes he's in a great position to hit the open market as a soon-to-be 27-year-old pass rusher. He believes he can hit the jackpot. He doesn't even rule out a Mario Williams-type contract.
"Anything is possible," Avril said, via mLive.com. "I would love to get Mario's deal. Who wouldn't? Those are some great numbers. My thing is I want to keep getting better. I'm still young. I'm only 26 years old. The sky is the limit as far as that. Those are some great numbers. Hopefully we can get somewhere near there."
