Broncos deal J.J. Arrington to Eagles

It’s rare to see a trade early in training camp, especially one as minor as this.  But we’ll take what we can get on this Friday night while my wife silently begins to hate me from the other side of the apartment because I’m writing about J.J. Arrington.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports the Broncos dealt Arrington to Philadelphia in exchange for linebacker Joe Mays.

Both players were considered to be on the roster bubble, and this move indicates that they weren’t particularly likely to make their original team.

The Eagles love pass-catching backs, so Arrington will try to make his mark as a potential backup to LeSean McCoy.  The former Arizona Cardinal is coming off microfracture surgery.

Mays’ departure adds depth to a so-so Broncos linebacker group.

    That former CFL running back Mallett will be one of Eagles backup RBs.

    Dumb trade. At least Mays could hit and play special teams. Arrington can do… nothing. He runs a mean flea flicker, I guess. The running backs will be Shady, Mike Bell, and either Mallet or Buckley. Buck can play special teams but Mallet was CFL rookie of the year. Arrington is just a camp body for the LBs
