Broncos Trade RB J.J. Arrington To Eagles For LB Joe Mays

The Denver Broncos and Philadelphia Eagles have completed a trade that will send RB J.J. Arrington to Philadelphia for LB Joe Mays, pending physicals.  Adam Schefter tweeted as such just a few moments ago:

Joe Mays (5-11, 246) is a 3rd Year linebacker from North Dakota State. The Eagles drafted Mays in the 6th Round of the 2008 NFL Draft. Mays was mainly a Special Teams player, starting just one game in his 2 seasons in Philadelphia. He finished 4th on the Eagles last season with 19 ST tackles. Mays will also provide the Broncos depth at linebacker as the team goes through Training Camp.  Darrell Reid is still recovering from off-season knee surgery, so Mays might just take his place, temporarily.

Interestingly enough, the Eagles targeted Arrington instead of a running back they know a bit better - Correll Buckhalter. Obviously contract status likely had alot to do with that, and the Broncos must already feel good about their stable of running backs as well as their return game since Arrington provided depth in both areas.
