Lions Interested In Acquiring Rob Sims
Sims was tendered at the "Original Round" level, and would carry fourth-round draft choice compensation should the Lions sign Sims to an offer sheet. The Seahawks, who have told Sims to stay away from the team's off-season workout program, are highly unlikely to match any offer sheet Sims signed this off-season.
The Lions' fourth-round pick is the 100th overall in the 2010 NFL Draft. Therefore, the Lions may seek to work out a trade with the Seahawks, perhaps for a fifth-round draft choice, which would be the 133rd overall pick in the draft.
Sims (6-3, 312) has started 34 of his 45 career games since being chosen with the 128th overall pick of the 2006 NFL Draft out of Ohio State. Last season, Sims returned from a torn pectoral that sidelined him for nearly all of the 2008 season to start 14 games at left guard for the Seahawks, and was arguably the team's most consistent offensive lineman. Sims has drawn interest from other NFL teams this off-season, including the Chicago Bears.
If Sims ends up with the Lions, he'd be reunited with former Seahawks teammates Nate Burleson, Will Heller, Kevin Hobbs, Maurice Morris, and Julian Peterson.
