Chiefs send CB Arenas to Cardinals for FB Sherman
Kansas City, Mo. • The Kansas City Chiefs have traded cornerback Javier Arenas to the Arizona Cardinals for fullback Anthony Sherman.
A second-round draft pick from Alabama in 2010, Arenas played 47 games in three seasons with the Chiefs, including 12 starts. He had two interceptions and returned kicks for the Chiefs, averaging 21 yards on kickoffs.
Arena started a career-high nine games in 2012, with 59 tackles and a forced fumble. He was third in the NFL in punt returns with a 12.8-yard average in 2011.
A fifth-round pick in 2011, Sherman was primarily a blocking back, catching 13 passes for 111 yards and rushing for three yards in two seasons with Arizona.
First-year Cardinals coach Bruce Arians brought in a new offensive system that rarely uses the fullback spot.
