The Seattle Seahawks acquired defensive end Robert Henderson and a fifth-round pick in 2010 in exchange for Sims and a seventh-round pick in 2010, a league source told La Canfora.
The Seahawks put a fourth-round tender on Sims as a restricted free agent, which he signed last week as talks with several teams were ongoing, according to La Canfora. Sources indicated that the Lions, Bears and Eagles were all strongly in the mix.
Sims, a fourth-round draft pick by the Seahawks in 2006, has started 34 of 45 games, including 14 last season. However, his skill set is not best suited to the zone scheme Seattle is now using, which made him expendable.
