The Seattle Seahawks traded defensive end and 2008 first-round pick Lawrence Jackson to the Detroit Lions on Wednesday for an undisclosed draft choice in 2011.

A day after Jackson admitted he was in limbo in Seattle, the Seahawks announced they had traded him away. Seattle general manager John Schneider was not on the job when the Seahawks drafted Jackson out of Southern California.

Neither was Pete Carroll, Jackson’s former coach at USC, or the rest of Seattle’s defensive staff. They are installing schemes that call for ends to be run stuffers or fast pass rushers, and Jackson has so far proven to be neither.
