Tony Scheffler traded to Lions in 3-team deal

Tony Scheffler has been traded to the Detroit Lions in a 3-team deal that saw the Lions send LB Ernie Sims to Philadelphia and a 5th Round draft pick comes to Denver.  The pick is Philadelphia's - #137 overall - via Cleveland.

The Broncos now have 6 picks in the Top-137 and are back in the 5th Round.  They had originally traded away their 5th Round pick last summer to acquire LeKevin Smith from the Patriots.

The Lions get Scheffler, a talented pass-catching TE and a 7th Round pick from Denver.
