    I love the trade. Redding is insanely overpaid. He was a product of playing next to Shaun Rogers.

    Peterson will start at SLB for us I'd imagine.

    As for draft implications, I think this lessens the possibility of us taking Aaron Curry. I also think it makes DT a top priority for either the 20th or 33rd pick. Peria Jerry at 20 is my new target.

      Interesting deal. Knocks off the chances of seattle getting Raji and Detroit taking Curry at #1.

        Julian Peterson is overpaid too. An odd trade but maybe a change of scenery will help both players.


        Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

          It's a good move for both teams, for sure.

            Overpaid player traded for overpaid player. Seahawks get a pick.

            Seems like an OK deal for both teams. I think I also read that Redding will restructure his deal, but I'm not sure if it's true or not.

            Peterson was a good player, but he did a couple things that just annoyed the hell out of me. Doesn't wrap up, not a great run stopper, not great at covering TEs, undisciplined. He was a better DE for Seattle than LB.

                I don't know his contract status, but I doubt he's as overpaid as Redding.

                Redding's 7 year, 49 million dollar contract made him the highest paid DT at the time. That's absurd.

                Redding agreed to restructure his contract though. Good deal all around.

                NOW GO GET CUTLER!

                    Martin Mayhew is proving to be a very good trader in the NFL.

                    Now let's see how good he is at drafting . . .

                      Peterson will count about $9M vs the cap in 2009, and almost $10M in 2010. He's pricey.

                      And he's on the wrong side of 30.

                        Peterson is also the best 4-3 OLB in the league while Redding is a barely above average DT. The Lions have gotten the better end of two trades in the past year, now, as opposed the 0 in the decade before that.

                          Peterson is not the best 4-3 OLB in the league. That's false.

                            and that got us all of 4 wins last year. We need a pass rush, and Redding has a solid motor when he is healthy.

                              Hmm, sounds like I need to update my "Keith Bulluck > all other 4-3 LB's" study again... ;)
