The Dallas Cowboys traded cornerback Charvarius Ward to the Kansas City Chiefs for offensive lineman Parker Ehinger.
Ravaged by injuries to their vaunted offensive line, the Cowboys were seeking offensive line help, particularly a player with experience at guard and center. Ehinger, a fourth-round pick in 2016, suffered a torn ACL as a rookie and started only one game last season (Week 17).
Ward, an undrafted free agent, was expected to make the 53-man roster in Dallas. In Kansas City, he could get a chance to crack the cornerback rotation. The Chiefs’ secondary was overhauled in the offseason, including the trade of Marcus Peters to the Los Angeles Rams and acquiring cornerback Kendall Fuller from the Washington Redskins in the Alex Smith deal.
