Lions Trade Tyler Polumbus To Seahawks

The Lions have parted ways with offensive tackle Tyler Polumbus, but he was traded, not released.

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.

It will be interesting to see what the Lions got in return for Polumbus, especially since they have made yet another trade involving the Seahawks. Seattle wanted Polumbus last week and put in a claim for him, but due to the Lions' higher priority on the waiver wire, they got him instead.

With this trade, the Lions are now officially down to 75 players.
