After the 3-way NFL trade, the Eagles get Ernie Sims on their team as they think the player will be a driving force in the coming games. The trade was TE Tony Scheffler from Denver went to Detroit and Sims from Detroit went to Philadelphia. The Bleeding Green Nation further explains the reason for the trade, saying that Sims is known to be a tackling machine & a violent hitter. He’s amassed 420 tackles in his 4 year career and will be a great addition to the team. He’s a good hitter that balances his performance with speed. The trade was an advantage for the Eagles as the eagles gave up something little for someone like Ernie Sims who can offer big returns for the season.
