      Seriously, I think it works out well for both teams. Bly wasn't coming back to Detroit, and Bell wasn't happy in Denver. Foster was a throw-in for value, but he was replacable for the Broncos. Foster at RT means the Lions can focus on a stronger skill position player at #2 overall. Joe Thomas likely is not going to Detroit now. Bell is good KJones insurance, but the Lions should consider a 4th round (give or take) RB.

      Am I crazy to think that the Lions now dangle the #2 pick to Arizona (Joe Thomas) for a bunch of picks, then try to get a guy like Chris Houston or Leon Hall in Round 1?

        Half serious. But it looks like we are a lock to sign Kevin Curtis so I know it won't happen.

        I just think you take the best player available, and now that we have no need for Joe Thomas, it's difficult to say which player we will take at #2. I still adamently believe they won't take a QB.

        Who does that leave? Gaines Adams? Trade Down? That's about it.

          With the 5th overall pick?
          Jamaal Charles is the best RB in the NFL

            well bell is a pretty good back and a starter. he is really just for insurace but can be a really productive 2nd back. foster was a starter for a good while and is an inprovement probable over what detroit has

            dre bly just didnt seem to fit in with detroit any more now that they are a cover 2.

            both teams i think gained something from this trade, but in overall value i think bell and foster are worth more than just bly

              Problem is that we aren't gonna take Thomas now and Arizona knows that. Now that it appears that Thomas will fall to Cleveland though, Arizona might become a bit more desperate. It's a strange scenario.

              Detroit would love to take Adams/Anderson, but I am not sure they'd do it without a trade down.

                    That's exactly what I'm afraid of. :(

                        um... is it just me or did Detroit not just get ripped off ?

                        Tatum Bell didn't even look that good in Denver... Hell, Olandis Gary looked good in Denver. Same with countless other RB's. Tatum Bell is gonna look terrible in Detroit, and George Foster? Big deal!

                        Dre Bly was the Lions best defensive player... Denver got a GREAT deal.

                        Detroit now has the worst secondary in the league.. nice job.

                        Thanks jkpigskin!

                            I think it is beneficial for both. Bly as the number 2 corner in Denver is a good fit. We will find out quickly if Bly is overrated because he will get picked on, not Champ Bailey. Bly will get ints though and make some big plays.

                            Secondly, Detroit saves 2.5 mil in cap space. Bly was as good as gone next year and didn't fit the Cover 2 at all (he had his worst year this past year). Also, Detroit finally gets a decent(not great) Right Tackle compared to the greatness of bust Stockar McDougle,Kelly Butler, Rex Tucker, Barry Stokes and a rookie Jonathan Scott. Foster seems like a mauler and can run block I would assume since he was a starter in Denver. He has some chemistry with Tatum Bell already. Tatum Bell provides KJ insurance, but when KJ comes back we have solid 1-2 punch like most good teams have nowadays.

                              Why didn't the Broncos like Tatum Bell?

                                For some reason, I think they'll get a guy like Antonio Pittman in the second, or something like that.

                                For some reason, I've been really intrigued at the prospect of Denver drafting Brad Lester (Auburn) next year. He is absolutely perfect for their system.
