Lions | Cliff Avril does not want to risk injury

Detroit Lions franchise free-agent DL Cliff Avril said he is likely to skip the start of training camp. "Probably won't be there the first day, that's for sure," Avril said. "I have to sit down with my agent and figure out when's a good time, if we're even gonna show up." Believing he lacks long-term financial security, Avril added he fears injury and skipping some or all of camp would be a business decision. "This is probably one of the only times in your career that you'll ever get a chance to, you know, opt out (and say) I'm not going to camp or whatnot," Avril said. "But it also goes into with injuries and stuff like that. You know, you don't want to get hurt."
