Reports: Cardinals to trade Anthony Sherman to Chiefs


The Cardinals have traded fullback Anthony Sherman to the Chiefs, Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star reported Wednesday.

Adam Caplan of first reported news of a likely Sherman deal.

Complete terms of the trade are not yet known.

A fifth-round pick of the Cardinals in 2011, Sherman (5-10, 242) has appeared in 28 regular-season games, catching 13 passes for 111 yards and carrying once for three yards.

Rookie Braden Wilson and Sherman appear to be the primary contenders for the Chiefs’ fullback job.

The reported trade of Sherman leaves the Cardinals without a fullback on the roster. New head coach Bruce Arians has been known to deploy tight ends in fullback-like roles, with David Johnson in Pittsburgh an example.

    Are the Cardinals going to try and lure Larry Centers out of retirement?

    Played with Sherm in high school. Great kid, insane athlete. Even if he doesn’t start at fullback he’ll find a roll on a couple special teams units.

    “Tank” is a monster….too bad Arians doesn’t employ the “run up the gut” run game…because this guy is a beast!

    Considering that all TE Jim Dray does is block, he may be a perfect candidate for that job.

    What are the terms of the trade? Maybe the Cards are looking to obtain Branden Albert?

    A team starts from the bottom up…this guy is a football player and tough and we needed a few more like him in Kansas City…

    He will be missed. Cards fans liked what he had to offer. A lot of heart and made some plays. Too bad BA doesn’t use FBs.

    Bruce- as a token of our consolation for destroying your Colts in the playoffs last year we’d like to trade you Vonta Leach for next year draft picks. Your welcome.
