You put your fifth rounder in, you take your seventh rounder out, you do the...
-- After an explosive day yesterday with the McNabb deal finally done, we follow up today with..... the Seahawks trading Guard Rob Sims to the Lions for DE Robert Henderson. Hmph. Seattle also gets Detroits fifth rounder while Detroit gets Seattles first seventh rounder. And really this is just another great scoop by the Lions, who may not seem to have made as much of a splash in the offseason, but in terms of the quality of their picks, have done amazingly well. The question is now, with this effort to shore up their O-line, does it point to a mindset that will see the Lions take a LT with the number 2 overall pick? -- The St. Louis Rams might as well hang a banner over their front entrance that reads "we're going with Bradford" after the release of long time QB Marc Bulger. I have to believe that the market for Bulger will be tepid at best. And at least now the Rams offense can start gearing itself up and getting ready for a new sheriff in town. -- Flozell Adams is still on the free agency list, which surprises me given the number of teams that need help at the position. Ok so he's 35 and he's not a long term solution, but he still brings a lot to the table. Now I've always been a believer in using Free Agency to fill roster holes and solve needs, freeing you up in the draft to go pick whoever takes your fancy (but filling glaring needs first in the draft if you still have them). I think the teams out there that need O-line fixes (and there are many) could do themselves a lot of good by picking up Adams at OT and Chester Pitts (UFA from Houston) at OG. That's two instant upgrades on what a lot of teams are working with right now. Have a great day everybody.
