Yea this makes no sense at all. so you lose a starting OLB for a back up TE? and if he's not the back up then what is the point of Pettigrew? and even if they are using 2 TE set why trade away your best defensive player for a guy who is gonna be blocking more than anything. Denver get a 5th rounder and Detroit gets a 7th rounder. Great trade for Eagles. And man McDaniels has completely re worked the entire starting line up minus o line and champ.
IDK anything about Sims but it seems like a decent trade all the way around. The Lions get not only TE depth but an extra offensive weapon for Stafford, the Eagles get a LB they really need. The only question for is Denver. Just don't see the need to give up a decent TE.
