Cliff Avril Says Recent Arrests Do Not Reflect the Lions

Lions defensive end Cliff Avril wants to be supportive of young teammates who have had run-ins with law enforcement this offseason, but doesn’t want the team as a whole to be branded as troublemakers, Josh Slagter, MLive.com reports.

“You can’t label us by a few young guys getting in trouble,” Avril said in an interview with ESPN’s “NFL 32” on Wednesday. “You can’t put that on the other 53 guys on the roster. That makes no sense. Obviously they are part of the team, but I don’t think it’s correct to put that on the other 53 guys who are on the roster.”

“Obviously, the guys who had two offenses, it’s kind of hard to talk to those guys, but you’ve got to be supportive of the guys and try to get them on the right track,” Avril said.
