NFL Draft Lions trade D'Andre Swift to the Eagles
Detroit receives 2025 4th-round pick

Detroit Lions
The #Lions are trading starting RB D'Andre Swift, sources tell me and @TomPelissero, sending him to the #Eagles in exchange for draft pick compensation. With David Montgomery and now first-rounder Jahmyr Gibbs, Swift heads out. Detroit gets a 2025 4th-round pick and they’ll swap seventh-round picks with #Lions getting 219, per source.

FFToday's Take: It seemed likely that Swift would be on the move after the Lions were overjoyed in selecting rookie Jahmyr Gibbs with the 12th pick in the draft. Swift has been a tantalizing player but has had his share of injuries during his brief three-year career. The Lions refused to give him a steady workload and it's doubtful he'll get that opportunity in Philadelphia as they run a RBBC scheme. The Eagles added Rashaad Penny in free agency as well.
