The NFL offseason is already off and running. Teams have been cutting players in order to get under the 2013 cap and preparing for the annual feeding frenzy that is free agency in the National Football League.
One of the biggest targets at the defensive end position this offseason could be Cliff Avril of the Detroit Lions, who told Pro Football Talk that it was "50/50" that he will be back with the Lions this year according to Chris McCosky of The Detroit News.
Franchise tagging Avril for a second consecutive season would be prohibitively expensive for the Lions, who are hurting for cap space.
So, unless the team can free up some wiggle room, Avril will hit the open market after racking up 30 sacks over the past three years.
Here are eight teams that could be waiting to pounce if he does.
