Ex-UConn fullback Sherman traded from Cardinals to Chiefs

Published May 02. 2013 4:00AM

The Arizona Cardinals traded Anthony Sherman, a former starting fullback and captain at UConn, to the Kansas City Chiefs on Wednesday for cornerback Javier Arenas.

Sherman, who served as Arizona's special teams captain last season - his third in the NFL - was deemed expendable by new head coach Bruce Arians because the fullback did not fit into his offensive plans.

The Chiefs also drafted a fullback in the sixth round in Braden Wilson, who played nearby at Kansas State. But that evidently didn't deter new general manager John Dorsey, a former UConn All-Amerian, and coach Andy Reid from acquiring Sherman from the Cardinals.

Sherman, who has two years remaining on his current contract, was used primarily as a blocking back under former Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt. He caught 13 passes for 111 yards and carried just once for three yards over two seasons.
