Lions free agency: Cliff Avril, Louis Delmas drawing interest from multiple teams

USA TODAY Sports

Detroit Lions free agents Cliff Avril and Louis Delmas are reportedly receiving interest from multiple teams.

Defensive tackle Sammie Hill isn't the only Detroit Lions free agent drawing interest from multiple teams. According to MLive's Anwar Richardson, defensive end Cliff Avril and safety Louis Delmas are receiving interest from several teams as well.

Avril is drawing interest from at least four teams, to be exact. Richardson reports that it's not clear if the Lions are currently pursuing Avril, but it probably doesn't matter at this point. Avril is regarded as one of the top free agents in all of the NFL this year, and he is expected to get a pretty big payday as a result.

Delmas' situation is a bit more interesting. He reportedly has already received a contract offer from the Lions, but he is deciding to look at his other options. According to Richardson, Delmas' other options are looking pretty good, as he has "the high interest of several NFL teams." If Delmas receives a better offer than what the Lions have put on the table, it's possible he could end up signing elsewhere.

Defensive end and safety are at the top of the Lions' list of needs this offseason. Even if both Avril and Delmas were re-signed, this would remain the case. If both end up elsewhere, the Lions will be in need of even more help at these two positions.
