[Kansas City.com] The Chiefs announced today that they have traded cornerback Javier Arenas to the Cardinals in exchange for fullback Anthony Sherman.
Arenas spent four seasons with the Chiefs, serving mostly as a nickel back and punt returner. He became a starter midway through last season but was crowded out of any realistic shot at playing time in 2013 by the Chiefs’ recent free-agent signings of veteran cornerbacks Dunta Robinson and Sean Smith.
The 5-feet-10, 242-pound Sherman was drafted from Connecticut by the Cardinals in the fifth round in 2011. He started 11 games for Arizona in two seasons, but was mostly a blocker and special teams player.
