Lions and Jags Swap Players

The Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jags have completed a trade.  The Lions are sending Gerald Alexander to the Jags in exchange for veteran WR Dennis Northcutt.

Gerald Alexander has shown promise for the Lions.  His downfall has been his ability to stay healthy.  Alexander was out for the season as of week 6 last year. Alexander has 88 tackles and 2 INTs in 17 career starts (2 seasons).

Dennis Nothcutt will be added to the already large list of WRs in Detroit.  He will compete with Bryant Johnson and Ronald Curry for the #2 spot.  Northcutt had 44 catches for 545 yards and 2 TDs last year with Jacksonville.
