  • 3-Way Trade: Lions, Broncos, Eagles

    Adam_Schefter

    Filed to ESPN: Three way trade -- Eagles get LB Ernie Sims, Lions get TE Tony Scheffler, Broncos get undisclosed draft pick.
    Interesting, I wonder why the Lions want Scheffler after they just drafted Pettigrew? Sure they're different types of TEs, but I don't really like it for them.

    EDIT - Here's the full terms:

    ProFootballTalk

    Full terms on 3-way trade: Philly sends 5th rounder to Denver, which sends Scheffler and 7th to Detroit, which sends Ernie Sims to Eagles.

        Welp that takes the Eagles out of getting Spoon. Even better.

          Pettigrew did blow out his knee last November so maybe there are concerns. Ernie Sims is terrible so I could care less that he's gone.

              I thought Scheffler would be going to Cincy.

                Sims is HORRIBLE. At least we got an NFL-caliber starter out of the trade. This trade does make me more concerned about Pettigrew's knee though.

                  We've been looking at alot of tight ends for this draft. Pettigrew tore his ACL and is more of a complete tight end. Good intermediate guy and good blocker. Scheffler stretches the field a little better. Two tight end sets are good, keeps defenses guessing but we still have better protection for Stafford since our line is shaky.

                  Linehan loves 2 tight end sets. Rams drafted 2 in one draft early and traded for Randy McMichael. When with Minny, he had Wiggins and Kleinsasser.

                  Ernie didn't fit the scheme here but that makes OLB a need now for sure.

                    Yeah, like said above, Linehan likes to go 2 TE, going back to his time at Louisville. Pettigrew (if healthy) and Scheffler is a good 2 TE duo. Good pair of receivers with Megatron.

                      Denver got ripped off in my opinion. Good trade for Detroit though, not sure what Philly sees in Sims.

                        Depends on the pick they get, which I would guess a 5th.

                          They sent their 7th away and got a 5th. Pretty bad value if you ask me.

                            Doesn't Sims blow and nearing the end of his rookie contract? The Eagles needed a SLB, not another WLB.
