DETROIT -- Defensive end Cliff Avril has reported to Detroit Lions training camp. Avril signed his tender Sunday and will make $10.6 million this season as franchise-tagged player. He didnt report with his teammates to training camp on July 26 and missed more than a week of practice. "Ready to get this thing rolling," he said. 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 said he knew all along which day hed report to camp. "I wanted to spend time with my son for his first birthday, and that was Friday," Avril said. "Then I took a day off to myself -- and back at it." Avril said he doesnt expect the missed time to affect him too much, and that he tried to avoid news of his holdout while he was away. "I was kind of watching the Olympics, trying to stay off of ESPN and NFL Network," he said. "I knew what day I was going to come back. I had it planned out." Avril helped Detroit snap its 11-season post-season 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. The long-term question now is whether the Lions will have him after this season. He and the team didnt reach a deal to make that happen this off-season. "I was on a one-year deal last year, and I didnt really think about it, honestly. Now that Ive signed on the dotted line, its all about making plays for the team," Avril said. "I was trying to get a long-term deal, because I like the city. I like the organization." cheap jerseys .

Mitchell appeared in 11 games last season. He caught three passes for 31 yards and the Browns had high hopes for the 24-year-old. However, after Cleveland selected Travis Benjamin in Aprils draft and then picked Josh Gordon in the supplemental draft, it became apparent Mitchells days were numbers.dddddddddddd It didnt help that he was slowed by a leg injury in training camp.

He was the most notable player released Sunday, one day before the Browns are required to get down to 75 players. ' ' '
