Scheffler to Lions in three-way deal's Kevin Seifert writes about all things NFC North in his division blog.

The Philadelphia Eagles, Denver Broncos and Detroit Lions have pulled off a three-way trade, with the Lions obtaining former Broncos tight end Tony Scheffler and the Eagles receiving ex-Lions linebacker Ernie Sims.

The Eagles sent a fifth-round pick in this week's draft to the Broncos, while Denver sent its seventh-round pick to the Lions to complete the trade on Monday.

In 59 career games, all with the Lions, Sims has been credited with 420 tackles including 2.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and one interception. He was credited with 49 tackles last season.

"Ernie Sims is an impact player at the linebacker position," Eagles coach Andy Reid said. "He brings a lot of energy to our already energized defense. We are looking forward to adding him to our team."

Denver had been shopping Scheffler since he signed his tender last week. A four-year veteran, he has 138 catches for 1,896 yards and 14 touchdowns, all for the Broncos. He caught 31 passes for 416 yards and two TDs last year.

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter contributed to this report.

So, lemmee get this straight...Feagles ship their R5 to Denver and get Lions stud backer Sims in return?


Holy fuckin' shit.  GMs are wayyyy overvaluing draft picks.

Edit:  Guess it could be worse.  We could be Bronco fans.  McDaniels doing his best to runoff any and all decent players they have on the roster.
