ack and had a surplus of talented offensive lineman Orlando Pace Jersey , while the Dallas Cowboys were in precisely the opposite situation.So they decided to make a deal.The Chiefs sent backup offensive lineman Parker Ehinger, who had lost his starting job in training camp, to the Cowboys for undrafted but promising cornerback Charvarius Ward. The deal was struck Thursday night but became official Friday, one day before teams are required to trim their rosters."I've had a chance to look at Charvarius and he's a big kid that's really had a pretty good training camp for them," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said on a conference call. "He's somebody that will come in and work into that mix there. He's young, so we're not bringing him in to be the starter or any of that, but he sure is a nice addition to that group."The Chiefs have been chasing help at cornerback ever since trading Marcus Peters, a standout but malcontent, to the Rams earlier this season. They acquired Kendall Fuller in a trade with Washington for quarterback Alex Smith, signed David Amerson in free agency, chose Tremon Smith in the draft, and picked up a couple more prospects that went undrafted in April.So far Deacon Jones Jersey Salute to Service , Fuller has been the only one to distinguish himself during the preseason.He's poised to start alongside Steven Nelson, who missed part of camp with a concussion, but the depth beyond that gets thin. Amerson has been burned in preseason games, while Smith was a sixth-round pick from Central Arkansas who is trying to adapt to a major upgrade in competition.Chiefs general manager Brett Veach evidently thought enough of Ward that he didn't want to risk someone else grabbing him on Saturday, assuming he was cut by the Cowboys. So he made the deal to send them Ehinger, a fourth-round pick in 2016 who earned the starting job as a rookie.Ehinger tore his ACL later that season, though, and with the exception of a start in Week 17 of last year, he's been unable to earn back the starting job. Cam Erving beat him out in camp.The Cowboys were searching for interior depth after losing backup Marcus Martin to a torn ligament in his toe this preseason. They also have a rookie, Connor Williams, poised to start at guard."They needed offensive linemen," Reid said. "They've been checking on our group there and Parker will go in and do a nice job for them Authentic Sean Mannion Jersey , and we appreciate everything he did here and how he fought back from his injury to get himself back to where he is now. He did a nice job."They wanted him and we wanted Charvarius, so it all worked out well." When it comes to quarterbacks creating something out of nothing, Aaron Rodgers of Green Bay and Russell Wilson of Seattle are the gold standard.Fortunately for safety John Johnson III and the rest of the Los Angeles Rams' defense, they already got a look at Wilson's Houdini act and can use that experience to prepare for what Rodgers and the Packers might do on Sunday."We get good practice at just staying on our man, keeping our eyes on our luggage," Johnson said Thursday.Wilson was 13 of 21 passing for 198 yards and three touchdowns in the Rams' 33-31 Week 5 win in Seattle, but the Rams were able to limit the number of off-schedule plays he was able to make."It's the NFL, you're going to give up a few plays, but as a whole I think we did pretty well in just keeping our eyes on our guys and maintaining that focus through the play," Johnson said.Rams defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is just as concerned about Rodgers' knack for improvisation, calling the two-time MVP one of the best ever in that aspect of the game."He's thrown every scramble pass you can think of for big plays," Phillips said. "If you're in zone or man Limited Aaron Donald Jersey , you have to get close to the guy you have (in coverage) and stay with him the whole time. That's where they excel."While Wilson will try to bounce outside and away from pressure, Rodgers is more likely to hang in the pocket to give his receivers a chance to come open.Ndamukong Suh, who faced Rodgers regularly during his five seasons with the Detroit Lions, believes Rodgers' ability to survey all areas of the field when a play breaks down makes him more dangerous than Wilson in scramble mode."He's very active as a quarterback, especially pushing the ball down the field," Suh said. "I think they're both elite quarterbacks, but I have a little bit more respect for Aaron."Relishing the chance to chase down Rodgers again, the veteran defensive lineman ruefully laughed when reminiscing about the NFC North rivalry.Suh said Rodgers usually does not talk to him on the field because "I don't know if he likes me." That's fine by Suh."My response is when he's getting up from the ground," Suh said. "That's what I'm excited for, or giving him a nice L, which I have done plenty of times in the past. That's the ultimate goal going against an elite quarterback like that."Suh rarely had to face Rodgers when complimented by a rushing offense as varied and successful as what Green Bay has this season in running backs Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery. The trio is combining to average 4.4 yards per carry Todd Gurley Jersey , and the Packers' overall average of 4.7 yards per attempt ranks ninth in the NFL.The Rams want to make the Packers one-dimensional, force Rodgers into throwing situations and unleash the pass rush anchored by Suh, Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers. If Rodgers is able to evade pressure and do "what he does best," as Johnson said, the Rams will risk it."He'll just hang in the pocket a long, long time sometimes for people to come open," Phillips said. "It's a tremendous challenge."NOTES: OLB Trevon Young (knee) did not practice Thursday. Young, a rookie from Louisville drafted in the sixth round, recovered a fumble against the 49ers on Sunday and has seen an increase in snaps since Dominique Easley was placed on injured reserve Oct. 2 because of a knee injury. ... LT Andrew Whitworth and C John Sullivan each had the day off for rest.
