Lions trade DB Diggs to Seahawks for 5th-round pick

Seahawks acquire safety Quandre Diggs from Lions

Detroit Lions players furious after team trades Quandre Diggs to Seattle for 5th-round pick

Despite his play, it's still worth asking why the Lions chose to move Diggs and a seventh-round pick for a fifth-rounder from Seattle. Over the past two seasons he had become one of Detroit's most reliable players in the secondary, along with Pro Bowl cornerback Darius Slay.

Diggs, 26, listed at 5 feet, 9 inches and 197 pounds, was a sixth-round pick out of Texas in 2015.

The Seahawks already have a logjam at safety, although starter Bradley McDougald is dealing with back spasms that kept him out Sunday against Baltimore and Lano Hill is expected to miss at least another week with an elbow injury.

The Lions are in last place in the NFC North. He has started five games for Detroit this season, missing one game with a hamstring injury. In 2018, he started all 16 games at strong safety, finishing with 64 tackles, three interceptions and eight pass breakups. Slay was among Lions players to react on Twitter, calling the trade "bulls--" in one of his tweets.

Tedric Thompson has started five of Seattle's seven games at free safety but has struggled at times. "I hate that we gave them that because there's no way that should've happened".

Also Tuesday, the Lions announced they were putting second-year running back Kerryon Johnson on injured reserve.

Earlier today, the Detroit Lions made a decision to send Quandre Diggs to the Seahawks for draft compensation. He signed a three-year contract extension last year with the Lions for a reported $18.6 million and was named a team captain prior to this season.
