Lions GM on D’Andre Swift: The trade to Eagles was a win-win for all parties involved

D’Andre Swift is heading home after being traded to the Philadelphia Eagles, and according to Detroit GM Brad Holmes, it was a “win-win” for both parties.

“At the end of the day,” Holmes explained, “him being able to go back to his hometown on a really, really good team that was just in the Super Bowl, I think it was a win-win for all parties involved.”

The former second-round pick was drafted by the previous Lions staff coach by Eagles senior assistant Matt Patricia.

The 24-year-old back enters the final year of his rookie contract set to earn $1.774 million in base salary, and he’ll get a chance to chase a championship with his hometown team.
