3 team trade; Sheffler to Detroit, Sims to Philly

Lions acquired TE Tony Scheffler and a 2010 seventh-round pick from the Broncos in a three-team trade that also sent LB Ernie Sims to the Eagles in exchange for a 2010 fifth-round pick.

Denver gets the fifth-rounder. Scheffler, strictly a pass-catching tight end, will play behind Brandon Pettigrew once Detroit's starter returns from his torn ACL. Scheffler adds a vertical threat to Matthew Stafford's arsenal, taking more pressure off Calvin Johnson. Pettigrew and Scheffler figure to cancel each other out in terms of 2010 fantasy value. Though injury prone, Sims gives the Birds a physical presence on the weak side. Both Scheffler and Sims are in contract years and Denver didn't acquire a premium pick. This is a low-risk deal all around, with potentially high rewards for Philly and Detroit

Caulk another move up to McDaniel...I just dont get it. I wanted the Rams to go after Sheffler.

Great deals for Detroit and Philadelphia.

It's a shock to me because Sim isn't a bum. He's been one of my favorite linebackers since college. He's going to be a huge plus to the Eagles secondary.
