Detroit Lions DL Cliff Avril said Tuesday, June 19, that contract talks are still ongoing, and that he would "prefer not to play under the franchise tag." Avril also continued to sidestep questions about whether he will hold out from training camp or the season if he doesn't get a long-term deal by the July 16 deadline. "But we have a lot of time in front of us," Avril said. "I think the deadline is July 16, and hopefully we get something figured out before then. I haven't really thought past that point."
