Who is left in the middle now for Detroit? Rogers traded last year Redding this year and Shaun Cody is a free agent.

Wow. Peterson being on the down hill side of his career would be an understatement. What a mediocre move by both sides. I guess at least Seattle got something out of it.

though they do have 2 first round picks. One has got to be a DT

Not a bad deal for either side. Seattle didn't really need Peterson--they have younger, cheaper LBs, and they got a decent DT who fills a need.

Detroit, on the other hand, got a high-level player who is clearly superior to Cory Redding in terms of talent. This means they may take someone like Peria Jerry at #20. Redding didn't really fit in Schwartz's scheme anyway--at least he got a good return for him.

Peterson is getting older (who isn't?) but I'd have to say he's still got some gas left in the bank. He's been on my FF IDP leagues for the last couple of years and has done well for me! :thumbsup:

I feel sorry for the guy going to the Lions. :horror:

now if aaron curry is still available i think the seahawks would jump all over it, and redding answers the DT need with the spot vacated by Rocky Bernard
