Eagles swap Mays for RB Arrington

The Philadelphia Eagles today announced they have traded LB Joe Mays to the Denver Broncos for RB J.J. Arrington or a 2012 conditional draft choice.

Originally a second round pick of Arizona in 2005, Arrington (5-9, 212) spent four seasons with the Cardinals from 2005-08, compiling 1,347 career yards from scrimmage (654 rushing, 693 receiving) while also averaging 23.6 yards on 114 kickoff returns, including two returned for touchdowns. He signed with the Broncos in 2009, but missed the season after undergoing microfracture knee surgery.

Arrington starred collegiately at California, where he earned consensus All-America honors as a senior in 2004 after amassing 2,018 rushing yards. The Rocky Mount, NC, native was a two-time all-conference selection at Northern Nash High School.
