Eagles Give Up Essentially Nothing For Cardinals' Reggie Wells

As BobQ posted earlier, the Eagles traded a sixth round pick to the Arizona Cardinals for offensive guard Reggie Wells. In pretty much the same release they announced that RB J.J. Arrington, who was acquired from the Broncos in exchange for LB Joe Mays, had been released.

As you may remember, one of the conditions of the Arrington trade was that if he did not make the Eagles 53 man roster, the Broncos would send a 2012 sixth round pick to Philadelphia.

So, the Eagles finished this piece of business with potentially a new starting OG and the same amount of draft picks they started the day with. If you trace the moves back to the start, the only thing they gave up was Joe Mays. Seems like a no brainer kind of deal.

Andy Reid had this to say about the acquisition of Wells,

"We're adding a player that has started several seasons in the National Football League and has played at a very high level during the course of his career," said head coach Andy Reid following the acquisition of Wells. "He has experience at several different positions along the offensive line and he will be a welcome addition to that group. You can never have enough depth at that position as you go through an NFL season."
