DETROIT – Detroit Lions players were furious after the team traded safety Quandre Diggs to the Seattle Seahawks for a late draft pick.

The Lions confirmed Tuesday that they are sending Diggs and a seventh-round 2021 pick to Seattle in exchange for a 2020 fifth-round pick.

Diggs was a captain and one of the most popular players in the locker room. The team traded wide receiver Golden Tate last season.
