When the Detroit Lions used a first-round pick on Alabama running back Jahmyr Gibbs, plenty of people couldn't believe it. Why would they go after a RB at No. 12 overall when they already have D'Andre Swift and David Montgomery?

Well, it looks like the Lions had a feeling that Swift wouldn't make it to Week 1 with the organization. On Saturday morning, Detroit ended up trading him to the Eagles. Whoa.

Swift is a speedster and he showed flashes of brilliance while with Detroit. Now, he'll join a loaded offense in Philly. This is another big get for the Eagles and Howie Roseman.
