Eagles trade Brown to Bills for future pick

Another Draft Day deal for the Eagles, only this time, it involves a player.

The Eagles traded running back Bryce Brown to the Buffalo Bills for a conditional fourth-round pick in 2015.

The pick could become a third-round pick in 2016 or will be a fourth-round pick in 2016, pending the results of wide receiver Stevie Johnson, who was traded to the San Francisco 49ers yesterday.

The Eagles also swapped seventh-round picks in this year's draft with the Bills, moving up from 237 to 224.

Brown was seemingly the odd-man out as the Eagles acquired and re-signed Darren Sproles earlier this offseason, leaving them with four running backs. Brown also got lost in the shuffle as Chris Polk emerged as an offensive weapon.

Brown was a seventh-round pick of the Eagles in 2012. In two seasons with the Eagles, Brown rushed for 878 yards and six touchdowns. His touches dropped significantly in 2013 from 115 in 2012 to 75 and he rushed for just 314 yards after tallying 564 in his rookie season.
