Perhaps the best UDFA rookie on the Cowboys throughout training camp and the preseason was cornerback Charvarius Ward. He’s stood out and showed flashes at times that led many to believe he would make the 53-man roster.
It looks like Ward is going to make a 53-man roster, but not the one in Dallas. According to ESPN’s Todd Archer and Adam Schefter the Cowboys have agreed to trade Ward to the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to trade undrafted rookie cornerback Charvarius Ward to the Kansas City Chiefs, sources told @AdamSchefter and me. It is expected to be finalized Friday.— Todd Archer (@toddarcher) August 30, 2018
As noted Ward went undrafted so the Cowboys are coming out ahead as far as price is concerned. They turned nothing into something, we just don’t know what that something is quiet yet. (As details of the trade emerge we will update this post).
Ward is the second former Cowboys cornerback to end up with the Kansas City Chiefs this month. Just recently Orlando Scandrick (who Dallas released this offseason) signed with KC after being released by the team he chose to sign with, the Washington Redskins.
The Cowboys really liked Ward, but perhaps they liked what he’s fetching more. They have a precarious line of depth at cornerback, so much so that they decided to capitalize on it. Smart by them.
