Published:
DETROIT — Defensive end Cliff Avril has reported to Detroit Lions training camp.
Detroit Lions spokesman Bill Keenist confirmed Avril signed his tender Sunday morning.
Avril will make $10.6 million this season as franchise-tagged player. He didn't report with his teammates to training camp on July 26 and missed more than a week of practice.
Avril is the only NFL player with at least 19 1/2 sacks, nine deflected passes, seven forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries the previous two years.
He helped Detroit snap its 11-season postseason drought last year with 11 sacks, six forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries. He has had 30 career sacks and 14 forced fumbles since 2008 when Detroit drafted him out of Purdue in the third round.
