Steps Made Which Could Make Rob Sims A Detroit Lion

The Lions might be closer to trading for Seattle guard Rob Sims.

Citing league sources, reported Thursday that Sims, a restricted free agent, signed his one-year, $1.101-million tender early this week. That means, according to the league’s Web site, that “Sims very likely will be dealt before this month’s draft.”

    Bad deal right now there’s going to be off lineman for the future in this year draft. Good deal for a team to be 6-8 or 8-6 win loss record. Even the Lions sign this guy there still a 1-15 team for 2010 season.

    potentially a great deal right now – if part of the trade involves Detroit trading down and receiving one/both of of seattle’s first round picks

    What’s wrong with giving up a 4th rounder for a 26 year old guaranteed starting left guard? Yeah, the draft is deep, but I’d deal the 4th for a young veteran anyway. I highly doubt there will be anything involving Seattle moving up to #2 and the Lions getting one or both of their picks along with anything else. If the Seahawks won’t trade one of their picks for Brandon Marshall, I don’t think they’re going to give up both to move to #2. I think they’ll stay where they are and get two starters that they need (I’d guess Jimmy Clausen if he’s there and BPA with their second 1st rounder).

    A 4th or 5th would be a great deal…even better it ups the odds that they will draft Suh
