The Lion said " sent linebacker Ernie Sims to Philadelphia as part of a three-team trade". Beside that, The Lions have acquired tight end Tony Scheffler and a seventh-round pick from Denver.

    The Lions’ best pick, of course, came in 1989 when they took Barry Sanders with the third overall selection. Two teams picking ahead of the Lions that year still are kicking themselves for not taking Barry.
