Cliff Avril rumors: Buccaneers to "do what it takes"

J. Meric

It's silly season. You know how I can tell? Because Jason La Canfora is reporting that the Buccaneers are going to do "what it takes" to sign Cliff Avril. And if that fails, they're going after Connor Barwin. Yep.

Cliff Avril is the best in breed here, and the Lions desperately want to retain him, though that seems less likely by the day. The question is whether he reaches $10 million per year, which would help set the rest of the market for pass rushers. Tampa Bay is pushing hard for a pass rusher and several league sources believe they'll do what it takes to get Avril.

Yes, the Buccaneers are pushing hard for a pass rusher. That is, a pass rush specialists who comes at a lower price point than Bennett. Who they're letting go. Because they don't want to pay him starter money. Because they have Adrian Clayborn and Da'Quan Bowers.

In what world does it then make sense to go after Cliff Avril and pay him close to $10 million per year? Yeah. I thought so. Next rumor please. I hear the Bucs need some defensive backs.
