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.
