This year's top prize in free agency is Cliff Avril, the pass-rushing specialist who played his first five years with the Detroit Lions.
He's proven to be a sack master for the Lions the past three seasons, as he's totaled 29 sacks and a staggering nine forced fumbles since 2010.
Avril has been a defensive end since joining the league in 2008, but he was an outside linebacker at Purdue before being converted to a defensive end in his final two seasons with the Boilermakers. He's not a big man at 6'3" and 260 pounds, and he struggled against the run in the Lions' 4-3 scheme.
Therefore it's not a big surprise that he's being pursued by teams that run a 3-4 scheme, as they envision him wreaking havoc on opposing quarterbacks as an outside linebacker.
Sports Illustrated's Peter King recently reported that the Indianapolis Colts and Cleveland Browns were both hotly pursuing Avril, and he put his money on the Browns. But the latest reports indicate that Avril might land with the Colts, according to the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson.
Avril will sign with the Colts.
