Some trades takes days or weeks of negotiations. Others take hours. The Everson Griffen trade fell into the latter category, as the Detroit Lions found a motivated partner in the Dallas Cowboys and the two sides consummated a deal in the span of three or four hours Tuesday afternoon.
We’ll get back at it on the practice field tomorrow, but a big mental day for us here today. And while I’m sure most players appreciate the day of physical rest, the Lions are actually in a very good spot when it comes to overall health. The team had just one injury on their official report Wednesday.
Great tweet from the Falcons' social media folks
