Lions Announce Alphonso Smith Trade

Continuing to catch up on all the roster moves made over the weekend, the Lions finally announced the trade with Denver involving cornerback Alphonso Smith. As you likely know by now, Detroit sent tight end Dan Gronkowski to Denver for Smith.

The other compensation involved with this trade is the exchange of undisclosed 2011 draft picks. It's unknown what specific draft picks were given up or if this was simply a swap of picks in one round, but it appears both teams gave up a player and a pick in this deal.
