The Arizona Cardinals and Steve Keim are keeping busy as the team announced they have made a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles.

From the team:

Pending the passing of physicals by both players, the Cardinals will acquire defensive lineman Bruce Hector from the Eagles in exchange for safety Rudy Ford.

Hector (6-2, 296) played in eight games with the Eagles last season and had three tackles and a half sack. The 24-year old Hector originally entered the league with the Eagles in 2018 as an undrafted rookie free agent from South Florida. While at South Florida, Hector appeared in 43 games and finished his collegiate career tied for the fourth-most sacks (18) in school history.

Hector finished the 2018 season rating a 62.8 grade through Pro Football Focus.

Despite only playing in 82 snaps as an undrafted rookie, the Eagles liked Hector enough to keep him through the offseason after acquiring Haasan Ridgeway.

Welcome to the desert Bruce and good luck.
