Lions Notes: Cliff Avril Wanted Three-Year Deal From Detroit?

  • The Detroit Lions came in at No. 13 in Pro Football Talk's preseason power rankings. The site doesn't think the Lions will return to the playoffs because they will be "perhaps taking a small step backward" in 2012.
  • Dave Birkett reports that Cliff Avril wanted a three-year deal from the Lions. Birkett says that "both sides agreed on that." Considering the Lions' final offer was reportedly three years and $30 million, it appears that the money in the deal was the only area where they couldn't agree on things.
  • Here are the latest parts in the Lions' series of Calvin Johnson's top 10 plays of 2012: No. 5 (at Buccaneers), No. 4 (at Raiders) and No. 3 (vs. Chargers).
  • Not every NFL stadium is going to have Wi-Fi available for fans in 2012. Instead, MetLife Stadium, Gillette Stadium, Bank of America Stadium, Lucas Oil Stadium and the Mercedes-Benz Superdome will serve as "pilot projects" next season and will be studied by the league.
  • NFL.com's Jeff Darlington recently took a look at how the iPad is "revolutionizing playbooks for NFL players and coaches."
  • Indianapolis is reportedly going to bid for another Super Bowl.
