The Arizona Cardinals finally got their man off the trading block. Nope, not Matt Leinart – offensive lineman Reggie Wells. The versatile veteran has been traded to the Eagles for an undisclosed draft pick. R. Wells

It’s curious why the Cardinals were eager to deal Wells. He started every game over the past five seasons and is capable of operating at all four non-center positions up front. Wells has struggled at times in pass protection, but he’s always offered solid mobility in the ground game. Plus, it's not like the Cardinals have the most reliable guys replacing Wells. Right guard Deuce Lutui loses control of his weight every so often, and right tackle Brandon Keith has never played meaningful snaps at the NFL level.

The Eagles could look to make Wells a starter. They’ll likely continue to go with oversized Todd Herremans at left guard (even though Herremans has trailed off from his near-Pro Bowl form of ’07). At right guard, however, Stacy Andrews has struggled to pick up Philly’s system and blocking techniques, and he hasn’t been the same since blowing out his knee in 2008.

If Wells doesn’t capture Andrews’s job, he’ll surely be the offensive line’s sixth man.

Todd Herremans is oversized? I think you have him confused with either Nick Cole or Max Jean-Gilles. Herremans has had alot of foot injuries the last 2 seasons and thats why people may say he has trailed off his pro bowl form of 07 but the fact is the o-line is so much better with him in the lineup. I see Reggie Wells being an insuracne policy if Stacy Andrews can't cut it at right guard and eventually being the main backup at both guard positions.
