The Patriots are expected to send a sixth-round draft pick to the Cardinals in this trade, per ESPN's Field Yates.
Per @FieldYates, the Patriots are expected to send a sixth-round pick to Arizona for OL Korey Cunningham. That is an indication they expect Cunningham to be on their 53-man roster as a likely swing tackle. That primarily impacts Dan Skipper and Cole Croston on the current roster.— Mike Reiss (@MikeReiss) August 28, 2019
Cunningham is entering his second NFL season after the Cardinals selected him in the seventh round of the 2018 Draft. The University of Cincinnati product played in six games (all starts) at left tackle for the Cardinals last season.
He's listed at 6-foot-6 and 305 pounds.
