  • Big Lions trade involving Seattle might be in works.

    according to PFT.com, we might be trading Corey Redding to Seattle.
    There's a rumor out there that we might be trying to get Julian Peterson, an MSU alum in the deal and this report links those two together.
    Thoughts?

    interesting....maybe we could get their second rounder? That would be a huge steal...

      clear out all signs of millen. we'd definately need to hit DT now in the draft. i want to see what pick we'd get in return though, but it should be fair enough. jerry can take his place, or maybe fluellen/IAF. we need linebackers badly. lol@them even remotely thinking it would be the 4th pick. maybe 4th round idiot reporter.

      actually it would be great if we swapped 4th and 20th picks....then could grab raji or a tackle. this could remove all signs of millen in one bold stroke of genius depending on the full trade.

        It's looking official - Redding and a fifth rounder for Peterson.

        It just shows how desperate the Lions are for LB's - and they should be. Redding is 28, Peterson 30. Redding was costing the Lions a mint (thanks again Millen) so taking him off the books for future years is a benefit, plus Peterson has been nice and healthy for several years and went to the Pro Bowl just last season. Instantly gives us a legitimate SLB starter.

        Now at DT we have two ancient run-pluggers for first and second downs and two unproven young players for passing downs and to back up. Everyone is saying we now have to draft a DT but we might be able to survive '09 with this situation.

          This will give us a huge talent at SLB, but at a very big price tag. I'm a big fan of Peterson and in all honesty I would love to see him here playing DE opposite Avril, but I'd rather see if we can get a top 3 rd pick for Redding and then try to sign Peterson as a FA.

          I like the idea of getting rid of Redding, in his career hes only had a good 1/2 season in a contract yr, so IMO he's not worth the money. Plus we already have 2 or 3 potential UTs on our squad in Cohen, Fluellen, and IAF(?) so lets dump Redding and move on.

            fox sports is reporting it as a done deal. I think I'd rather wanted Crowell from FA and a 3rd from Seattle, but overall I'm more happy then mad

              i hope we still get crowell. we have cap room and hopefully will fill the stands again provided we win a few games early.

              well atleast win 1 game early.

                If we dont get Crowell then we have absolutely no chance of drafting Curry. I think we should still go after Curry and have a strong linebacker group

                Sims
                Peterson
                Curry

                that would be sick

                  We have to go after Jerry at 20. It'll take him a year to develope so nows the best time to get a DT. Overall i like the trade get Redding out, he played well for half a year which was also his contract year and hasnt done anything since. We now have a solid LB core with sims and Peterson.

                  But we do need to address DT now IMO

                    Decent trade for the Lions I guess, but a bit of a let down with the topic title...I thought it involved a trade down from #1 Overall
