    Detroit got the worst end of this..
  9. Sims no longer fit in the Lions plans and lost his starting job last year. The Lions received a pretty good receiving tight end in Scheffler who can stretch the field and gives the Lions the ability to run a lot of two-tight end formations with Brandon Pettigrew.

    If Detroit got a 5th for Ernie Sims, It makes me wonder what Bobby Carpenter's trade value is?

    My guess is half a handjob from an elderly Okinawan "Buy Me Drinky" girl

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Jihad Joe again.

    That's hilarious. And true.

    great great great 4th rounder for Sims

    so that means we won't go LB in the first round...hmm

    I think Earl Thomas or Kyle Wilson are on top of our wishlist

    I dont like the deal but looking at it from afar

    Sims has not been great the last 2 seasons and are Defense improved with Levy in the lineup over him

    hes not a great LB but a good one

    Do we need another TE no but what it says to be is they plan on taking Suh and not the OT and this is the next best thing to help stafford without using 1 of are only 4 picks in the rounds that we could so that in expect defense in the 1st 4 rounds

    We still need more help at LB. Getting Sims and Weatherspoon in the same week would be frickin' awesome.

    Although, I would LOVE me some Earl Thomas.
  16. Nothing Imminent Between The Eagles, Ernie Sims About A New Deal

    The Philadelphia Eagles have acquired linebacker Ernie Sims as part of a three-team deal on Monday that also saw tight end Tony Scheffler go to Detroit. Philadelphia sent a fifth-round pick in 2010 to Denver (137th overall) and the Broncos gave a seventh-round pick in 2010 (220th overall) to the Lions, who sent Sims to the Eagles. The Eagles will have to extend Sims at some point, he is finishing out his rookie deal, but Jason La Canfora of NFL.com is told no deal is imminent, according to a league source.
