Detroit: Defensive End Cliff Avril ($8.8 million)
The defensive line is where Detroit is most heavily invested. This might be a sage move considering the Giants’ front four played such a key role in New York winning two of the past five Lombardi Trophies. Keeping a disruptive pass rusher like Avril is a must. But before the team can comfortably sign him to a contract extension, the Lions must extend wide receiver Calvin Johnson’s contract and lower his massive salary-cap number. —Alex Marvez
