Trade Deadline Wishes

With the trade deadline approaching, here are some players/teams that I think the Lions need to pursue.


New York Gaints: Its safe to say that this team is loaded with depth and talent at the defensive line. Right now, they have guys like Chris Canty, Rocky Bernard, and Mathias Kiwanuka as backups on their team. Its safe to say that any one of those three guys would be an upgrade to our line. The Gaints have needs too. They are a little short on safeties, and the Lions seem to have a few good backups like Ko Simpson and Kalvin Pearson. Maybe they can work something out.

Julius Peppers:  First of all, this is my dream situation, but Peppers seems to be pretty disgruntled in Carolina, and the Panthers aren't exactly winning anymore either, so he has very few reasons to stick around. Jim Scwartz has convinced players like Anthony Henry and Philip Buchanon to play for the Lions; maybe he can convince Peppers too. I think if the Lions gave up their second round pick next year, Carolina would give him up. He was franchised this season, and it doesn't seem likely that he will re-sign next year with the Panthers, so I would reckon that Carolina would want to get something for him, instead of nothing. Plus, they trade d away their next year's first rounder, so this would be a way to regain draft picks. Of course, part of the deal with Peppers would have to be him signing a long-term deal with the Lions, or else its not worth it (this is where I think Schwarts would come in).

Ellis Hobbs: Philadelphia acquired him on draft night for I believe a fourth rounder. At the time, Sheldon Brown, their starting LCB, was in a holdout, so the Eagles needed a safety option. Well, Brown signed a deal with Philly, and Hobbs has been a backup after starting at cornerback for the Patriots from 2006-08. I think he is gonna come cheap (like a fifth or fourth rounder), and would be a solid addition to the Lions
