The Eagles have traded RB Bryce Brown to the Bills, the team announced.
CSN Philly’s Geoff Mosher was first with the report.
The two teams swapped seventh-round picks. The Eagles now get No. 224, and the Bills get No. 237.
The Eagles also get the conditional pick that the 49ers sent the Bills in the Stevie Johnson trade. Based on how Johnson performs, the Eagles will get one of the following:
* A fourth-rounder in 2015.
* A third-rounder in 2016.
* A fourth-rounder in 2016.
Brown was a seventh-round pick in 2012. He had an impressive rookie season, rushing 115 times for 564 yards and averaging 4.9 yards per carry. But he struggled in 2013. Overall, Brown ran 75 times for 314 yards last season, averaging 4.2 yards per carry. But a big chunk of those yards came in one game against the Bears where Brown ran nine times for 115 yards. Take that game away, and he averaged 3.0 YPC.
Looking at the depth chart, the Eagles’ primary backups for LeSean McCoy are Chris Polk and Darren Sproles.
But Sproles only ran the ball 53 times last season. The Eagles could look to draft a running back later today.
We’ll have names of guys to watch soon.
