The Detroit Lions already pulled off a trade with the Los Angeles Rams earlier this year that will become complete later today, acquiring Jared Goff and a bevy of draft picks for Matthew Stafford.
And now, GM Brad Holmes has swung another deal with the Rams.
Multiple reports indicate that the Lions are set to acquire DL Michael Brockers:

In exchange, the Lions are sending a 2023 7th round draft pick to Los Angeles:

The Houston native played collegiately at Louisiana State, and was drafted by the Rams (then in St. Louis) in 2012. He’s amassed 387 tackles, 28 sacks, and two forced fumbles during his NFL career.
As you may remember, Brockers declared that the acquisition of Stafford in Los Angeles was a level up from Goff. Now, they’re set to become teammates once again.
