He didn't prove them wrong, he was a good player just not worth the money that he wanted. Seattle didn't even give him the money that he wanted. Detroit offer a 3 year $30M contract and he declined. If the Lions would have resigned Avril they wouldn't have Jason Jones, Reggie Bush and Ziggy Ansah. Letting him go worked out for both teams.
