Rob Sims is heading to Detroit.
The trade is no surprise; the new Seahawks coaching staff had said Sims wasn’t in their long-term plans, and we noted yesterday that Sims was likely to be traded to either the Lions or Bears this week.
In 2009 the 26-year-old Sims started 14 games for the Seahawks. In 2010 he’s likely to be the starting left guard for the Lions.
UPDATE: Schefter reports that Detroit will send a fifth-round pick to Seattle.
