The Baltimore Ravens announced that they traded lineman Jermaine Eluemunor to New England for an undisclosed draft pick.

Earlier in the day, Arizona Cardinals offensive lineman Korey Cunningham announced on Instagram that he had been dealt to the Patriots. ESPN’s Field Yates reports that the Cardinals will receive a sixth-round pick in return.

Eluemunor, an interior lineman, played in 17 games for the Ravens including two starts after being selected in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL draft.

Cunningham, a tackle and a seventh-round selection in 2018, played in six games for the Cardinals as a rookie, all of them starts.

Backup guard Ted Karras is expected to take Andrews’ place at center for New England, leaving the Patriots with a need for depth.
