Seahawks make out like 'bandit'
By Mike Sando
The Rob Sims trade wasn't the only Seahawks-Lions transaction Monday.
Seattle also sent a 2010 seventh-round choice to Detroit for defensive end Robert Henderson, ESPN's Adam Schefter notes.
Henderson played the "bandit" defensive end position -- combination linebacker and defensive end -- at Southern Mississippi. The Seahawks' defense is expected to incorporate similar elements under the "elephant" moniker.
Seattle owns two seventh-round choices, but only one of them -- No. 213 overall -- can be traded. The other seventh-rounder was a compensatory selection.
