Eagles acquire G Reggie Wells from Cardinals

With cuts coming tomorrow, the Eagles appear to still be tweaking their roster. In a trade with the Cardinals, the Eagles swapped a 6th round pick for offensive guard Reggie Wells. Wells, an 8 year NFL veteran, figures to slot in as a backup at either guard spot. Wells has been a solid player for the Cardinals over the last few years and has started in 90 straight games.

His acquisition likely means that someone unexpected from the offensive line is going to get cut from the final roster. Could Max-Jean Gilles be getting the axe? Adam Schefter also speculates that the Eagles could also try to deal Stacy Andrews, who clearly has been a disappointment since being signed before last season. If the Eagles do deal Andrews, that would likely put Nick Cole in the starting right guard spot.
