Philadelphia Eagles Trade RB Charles Scott To Arizona Cardinals for CB Jorrick Calvin

The Eagles pulled off a minor trade today sending rookie RB turned FB Charles Scott to the Arizona Cardinals in exchange for rookie CB Jorrick Calvin. Scott, who the Eagles took 200th overall out of LSU failed to make an impact at Lehigh or in preseason and was most likely set to be cut by the end of the week. However, when Arizona lost Nehemiah Broughton to an ACL injury, they decided to swing a trade for Scott. Ironically, the player Arizona sent in return was taken just one pick later in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Calvin's best shot to make the Eagles 53 man roster will be as a return man, where he's shown some ability.

"This guy has return ability ... and you’re always looking for corners," said Eagles general manager Howie Roseman. "It’s a hard-to-find position. We felt like it was an opportunity to bring a guy in and see what he has."

None of the Eagles return men have really distinguished themselves so far this preseason and if he turned in a solid performance against the Jets, he very well might find himself a roster spot. If not, there's always the chance he lands on practice squad.
