Avril wasnt worth what he wanted last year, and this year he's proving it. I say let him walk if he wont take market value for a slightly above average LE. There are plenty of guys that can be had in the draft of free agency that are competent speed/edge rushers.

I said the Jake Long or Ryan Clady thing in the NFL draft thread awhile ago. in one of my long mocks i said focus all of our attention in FA to one of the two.
I think it was profootballtalk, but they did an article about Jake Long and his decline in play the past couple years and he isn't the stud LT people think he is.

Draft Guard chance warmack! Dude is a beast. Our O-line would be:
Say goodbye to backus unless he wants a back up job. Stick with Raiola one more year
Boy I would have been MFing Mayhew now if they would have committed all that money to Avril. Seems to get helped off the field every other game!

Doesn't seem to work too well!
Thats what I was thinking. He is still above average. I wouldn't throw the bank at him but I would definitely try and get him.
