Arizona sends OG Wells to Eagles for draft pick

The Arizona Cardinals have traded starting guard Reggie Wells to the Philadelphia Eagles for an undisclosed draft pick.

Wells had started the last 90 games for Arizona, dating to the 2003 season, as well as the team's six postseason games, but was moved from left guard to right guard this year following the signing of free agent Alan Faneca.

The trade came after a strong preseason showing by Deuce Lutui, the starter at right guard the past two seasons who signed his tender offer with Arizona late in the summer after a contract dispute.

Wells was a sixth-round draft pick out of Clarion in 2003 and had appeared in 104 games for Arizona over his seven seasons.
