  • Scratch Scheffler off your list...

    National football post

    The Philadelphia Eagles acquired linebacker Ernie Sims from the Detroit Lions as the Denver Broncos sent tight end Tony Scheffler to the Lions with an undisclosed draft pick heading to Denver, according to ESPN.

    Scheffler's trade isn't surprising considering he has been on the trading block for a while and he clashed with coach Josh McDaniels.

    Sims didn't fit the Lions' new defensive scheme, but he fits perfectly in Philadelphia

    Sims in Philly is going to be scary. I can only envision him breaking someone in half there.

      Same thing will be and with Osi.

        So Scheffler goes from being a back-up in Denver to... being a back-up in Detroit behind first round tight end Brandon Pettigrew. The Eagles get Sims and fill a hole with a quality player for a reasonable price.

          Why did Detroit make this trade? They have lost a good linebacker for a back up TE, it really doesnt make sense!

            There goes Linehan, collecting tight ends again

              If Sims doesn't fit the Lions' defensive scheme, then he isn't going to be a good linebacker for Detroit...

                well..i guess we won`t have to worry about who to pick 1st overall next year...

                being a Rams fan can be hard ..but its a sunday stroll in the park compared to what the Lions fans go through...respect to them for not drowning themselves in Lake Michigan.

                  Broncos got very little. There is a reason why Philly has been so good for so long, say what you will, Sims for a 5th rounder is an awesome deal.

                      i'd have given up a 5th in a heartbeat for sims or sheffler..obviously deals like that aren't likely to happen for us right now, and if guys like this are going for 5th-rounders in this draft we aren't getting anything for guys like barron or carriker.

                        Can't say that I'm not frustrated. We have two fifth round picks. If they are seen as so valuable we had better draft some good qality rookies with them! In my opinion, Scheffler or Sims are better than anyone we will get in the fifth. Of course, all my woes will be alleviated if we can bring Osi in, hopefully for a fifth, that seems to be market value

                          Let's not think that the offer for Sims was on the table for every team. With 32 other teams, we're not going to get every guy as has been said before. Does Sims even fit our scheme?

                            Sims doesn't seem like a fit here he is to small. If Pisa didn't fit in here, Sims would either practically the same players.

                            I can't say I'm not disappointed on not being able to land schefler for such a low price. You win some you loose some lets move on

                              Veteran cornerback Fernando Bryant, cut last month by the Detroit Lions, could soon be landing in a new city.

                              According to a league source, Bryant is in discussions with several teams and could agree to terms within the next 24 hours. Possible destinations include the Denver Broncos and St. Louis Rams.

                              Bryant, 30, spent five years with the Jaguars and four with the Lions.

                              I wouldn't mind this signing given it is relatively cheap. He would give us much needed depth at a thin position especially if Brown gets suspended, and he would provide better talent and depth than Lenny Walls (LOL!) did last offseason.

                              Take Spielman off your PPD short list.

                              A mediocre stint with the Lions in Sanders hayday, three dismal years in Chicago, and a decent run in Miami until he made some questionable moves in '04.

                              Maybe it's just me, but this guy sure gets a lot of press for what could be described as an average (at best) resume....

                              #9 pick and the mcnown signing by lions
                              by general counsel
                              given that the lions have signed mcnown and kitna, i believe that cutler is for sure out of the running for them at#9. Any ideas on how this continues to effect the draft. As a practical matter, the signing of kitna may have knocked cutler off the lions list at #9 anyway. It appears that he may make it to us at 11, unless someone trades up to get him. if he is there at 11, it would be good trade down possibilities.

                              The Lions designated Cory Redding their franchise player Wednesday, effectively keeping him off the free-agent market.

                              They failed to sign Redding after recruiting him hard the past two months, but they still hope to lock him up long-term.

                              "I think that our use of the tag is reflective of the importance we place on Cory Redding being part of our team," said chief operating officer Tom Lewand. "We clearly hope to have Cory Redding a part of the Detroit Lions organization for a long time."

                              Redding joins stars such as Indianapolis defensive end Dwight Freeney, Chicago linebacker Lance Briggs and New England cornerback Asante Samuel who have been tagged as franchise players.

                              "Those are very fine football players, and Cory is deserving of being included in that class of player," Lewand said.

                              Coach Rod Marinelli, a former defensive line coach, said he thinks Redding and Shaun Rogers would be a dominant duo at tackle.

                              After moving from end to tackle six games into last season, Redding totaled eight sacks -- enough to lead the Lions for the year.

                              But he is reportedly unhappy. The Lions are 19-45 since they drafted him in the third round in 2003, and his options will be severely limited when he becomes a free agent March 2.

                              The Lions have the right to match any offer Redding receives. If they decline to match, they get two first-round draft picks. They must offer a one-year deal for $6,775,000, the average salary of the five highest-paid defensive tackles.
