Lions Trade Tyler Polumbus To Seahawks

New, comments

Contrary to earlier reports that offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus was released by the Lions, he was actually traded to the Seahawks.

The Detroit Lions have traded offensive lineman Tyler Polumbus to Seattle, although it is unknown what the Lions have received in return. 

Polumbus’ agent, Jack Mills, said his client was traded to the Seahawks on Monday night. He will be reunited there with offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates, who was Denver’s quarterbacks coach in 2008, when Polumbus was a rookie with the Broncos.

The Seahawks put in a claim for Polumbus last week when he ended up in Detroit instead, so their interest in him is no surprise. I'm just interested to see what the Lions will get in return for Polumbus, as Detroit and Seattle are no strangers to making deals with one another.

More to come as this story continues to develop.

UPDATE: Adam Schefter reports that Polumbus was traded for "what is thought to be a late-round pick."
