A day after trading Von Miller, the Broncos traded another defender before the league's deadline. Denver has traded rookie cornerback Kary Vincent Jr. to the Eagles in exchange for a 2022 sixth-round pick.
A seventh-round pick in this year's draft, Vincent did not accumulate any regular-season statistics during his time with the Broncos. During his time at LSU, the 5-foot-10, 189-pound defensive back registered six interceptions and 15 pass breakups in 32 games. During LSU's national championship season of 2019, Vincent recorded four interceptions and eight pass breakups while helping the Tigers finish the year with a 15-0 record.
Vincent will join an Eagles defense that is currently 19th in the NFL in scoring, eighth in pass defense, 24th in rush defense, 26th in third down efficiency and 29th in red zone efficiency. Philadelphia's depth chat at cornerback currently includes starters Darius Slay and Steven Nelson along with reserves Avonte Maddox, Zech McPhearson, Josiah Scott, Tay Gowan and Mac McCain III.
Given his lack of playing time, it was clear that Vincent was not in the Broncos' plans. Instead of releasing him and getting nothing, the Broncos added to their stockpile of future draft picks. The trade of Vincent gives the Broncos a sixth-round in the 2022 draft that they had previously traded to the 49ers. Denver now has 12 picks in the '22 draft, as Broncos general manager George Paton is going all-in on a rebuild.
Vincent's new team improved to 3-5 following last Sunday's win over the Lions. Their next game is a home matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers, who are in search of their first win since Week 5.
