Rob Sims fits in at left guard for Lions

With all the offseason roster changes the Lions have made, it’s important not to forget a key deal. When the Lions traded with Seattle for left guard Rob Sims, the offensive line got a huge boost in a position that has been troublesome for years.

The Ohio native was thrilled to move back to what he described as football country — which isn’t exactly how anyone would describe Seattle. He is fitting right in.

“He moves really well. Our offseason program as far as lifting and running, the non-OTA stuff, is a little different than he is used to. But he acclimated pretty quickly,’’ Lions coach Jim Schwartz said. “... You wouldn’t expect anything less. He’s got a lot of experience (five years in NFL), he’s still young (age 26), moves really well, he’s a good addition for us.’’

He’ll play between left tackle Jeff Backus and center Dominic Raiola which should shore up that side of the line.

Let's just hope he stays healthy (out most of last year) and can play well.
