The Seattle Seahawks made a move to bolster their defense on Tuesday by acquiring veteran safety Quandre Diggs from the Detroit Lions via trade, according to ESPN’s Michael Rothstein.
Diggs, 26, was a Pro Bowl alternate last year after posting a breakout season for the Lions in which he collected 78 tackles, three interceptions, and eight passes defended.
The Lions will receiver a 2021 seventh round pick and a 2020 fifth round draft pick from the Seahawks as part of the deal for Diggs.
Diggs took to Instagram to thank his former Lions’ teammates, many of whom took to social media to express their shock, and his excitement to join the Seahawks saying “Seattle let’s get it!! Ready to get to work and win more games!! Too hyped!!”
Detroit will now turn to to rookie Will Harris at safety to replace Diggs, alongside Tracy Walker.
Diggs was popular with both players and with fans, and this trade marks the second straight year that the Lions have traded a popular player. Last year, they dealt wide receiver Golden Tate to the Philadelphia Eagles for a third round pick.
Tate now plays for the New York Giants, who take on the Lions this Sunday.
