Defensive end Cliff Avril has played for five seasons in the NFL for the Detroit Lions in their 4-3 defensive scheme. Just because he’s been in the 4-3, don’t pigeon-hole him as someone who can’t be helpful to a 3-4 team.

Avril told Michigan Live that he is willing and believes he could make the switch to a 3-4.

No, if we're going to be spending big money we should do it on the offensive side of the ball. I'd like to assemble the greatest offense ever.

Can't we argue that we already have that?:idunno:

Yes, you can. But there is always room for improvement. If we add a solid backup TE, a new LT, a new RT and a burner, we should be set. I have faith RR can hold teams to under 30.

I think that's why he's getting red-thumbed....it's why I red-thumbed him.

Oh no, not the dreaded red thumb!

We'll probably re-sign Bushrod, and we'll probably pick David Thomas back up. may address RT in the draft, and Morgan is our burner.

One burner is good, but 2 are better. If you remember back to our superbowl year, both Henderson and Meachem had great years. Henderson averaged 15.8 with 800+ yards and Meachem averaged 16.0 with 700+ yards. I don't believe Bushrod or DT will be back.
