An offseason full of big-name trades has added another significant deal to the mix.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports on a three-way trade between the Eagles, Broncos, and Lions. Linebacker Ernie Sims will land in Philadelphia, while tight end Tony Scheffler goes to the Lions.
PFT’s Mike Florio reports that the Broncos will get a fifth-round pick from the Eagles. Denver will send a seventh-round pick to the Lions.
It’s not a great deal for the Broncos, who wanted a third-round pick for their promising young tight end. Instead, they essentially dumped Scheffler to move up two rounds on the draft’s third day.
The move also shows how down the Lions were on Sims’ long-term prospects.
UPDATE: Here’s a look at what we learned from this trade.
