Eagles Trade Bryce Brown To BuffaloBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News Saturday, May 10th, 2014
The Eagles continued to stay active on the trade front during the draft, sending running back Bryce Brown to Buffalo in exchange for a conditional draft pick. Its a fourth-round pick for next year that could potentially become a third.
Brown showed us during his two years in Philadelphia that he had tremendous potential, but was still a little raw and wasn’t quite an ideal fit for what Chip Kelly wanted to do offensively. Still, Brown made some big plays for the Eagles towards the end of last season, including an important touchdown against the Dallas Cowboys.
Brown became expendable when the Eagles picked up Darren Sproles. With Chris Polk also on the roster, it would have been difficult for the Eagles to keep four running backs. Brown was the most tradable of the three, but he was also the one guy I would have been most confident in giving a featured workload to in the event that LeSean McCoy sustains an injury. Sproles is more of a utility player than a true running back, and Polk has had constant durability concerns.
