Eagles, Cardinals swap rookie draft picks

The Philadelphia Eagles have traded fullback Charles Scott to
the Arizona Cardinals for cornerback Jorrick Calvin in a swap of
rookie draft picks.

Calvin was selected one pick behind Scott in the sixth round.
Calvin played one season at Troy but was academically ineligible
last year. He had two interceptions and 76 tackles in 12 starts in
2008. Calvin also returned kickoffs and punts.

Scott was a running back at Louisiana State, but was moved to
fullback in Philadelphia. He had one carry in three preseason
games.

Arizona was in need of a fullback after Nathan Broughton went
down with a knee injury in Saturday night’s 14-9 victory at
Chicago. That left Reagan Maui’a as the only fullback on the
roster.

The Cardinals felt Calvin was expendable because of, among other
reasons, the strong showing of cornerback Marshay Green, an
undrafted free agent out of Mississippi.

In other moves, Arizona released tight end Dominique Byrd,
center David Moosman and tackle Casey Knips. The Cardinals signed
wide receiver Isaiah Williams, who was released by the Pittsburgh
Steelers a week ago.
