    DETROIT (March 1, 2007) -- The Detroit Lions will trade cornerback Dre' Bly to the Denver Broncos for running back Tatum Bell, offensive tackle George Foster and a fifth-round pick, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press.

    The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the trade can't be finalized until Friday, March 2.

    Both teams seemed to fill needs with the move, which gives Denver a Pro Bowl caliber player to replace the late Darrent Williams and allows Detroit to have more options in free agency and with the No. 2 pick overall in April.

    Broncos spokesman Jim Saccomano said he couldn't confirm any deal

    I'm not unhappy about it. Bly wanted out of here. And although he is a great player he didn't really fit the tampa 2. Now we have insurance if Jones doesn't come back as strong and more help for the offensive line. I don't know what the hell we are supposed to do with 4 5th round draft picks though. Sucks to lose one of your best players.......but he'd be gone next year anyways. At least Millen got something for him.
