The Eagles have announced that the Cards have traded cornerback Jorrick Calvin to Philly for fullback Charles Scott. Not a surprise since fullback Nehemiah Broughton blew out his knee in Chicago. Nothing official from the Cardinals as of now, but since the Eagles have put it out there, I’m pretty sure it’s done. Like Calvin, Scott was a sixth-round draft pick this year. It looked like Calvin was a long shot to make the team anyway, so if Scott pans out, the Cards may have salvaged the pick.
Scott needs to beat out holdover Reagan Maui’a. Calvin fell behind the undrafted Marshay Green, so he was probably going to be a practice squad guy at best.
UPDATE: The trade has now been announced by the Cards. The team also has released TE Dominique Byrd, and OL Casey Knips and David Moosman. They also brought in WR Isaiah Williams. That’s the extent of the moves coming today; the Cards have until tomorrow to make three more moves to get the roster to 75.
