Ronnie Brown Lions
October 19, 2011 by staff
Ronnie Brown Lions, The Eagles traded out of running back Ronnie Brown for the Lions on Tuesday and running back Jerome Harrison a draft pick in 2013. The selection is a seventh-round pick, according to a league source.
The deal, completed before the deadline of Tuesday, the NFL trade amounts to an exchange of backups that have been unproductive so far in 2011.
Brown, 29, was one of the big names free agents came in the heat of a summer spending spree, but his most notable contribution was a terrible fumble lost to San Francisco. The Eagles decided to recover Harrison, less publicized reserve which was for 11 games last year.
Harrison had 14 carries for 41 yards in Detroit, but had not touched the ball in the last three games. Brown had 13 carries for 38 yards in his brief stay in Philadelphia, but had not a touch from week 4, the loss in which he lost the ball on the line trying to throw a pass that was addressed.
“Jerome was very successful in Philadelphia last season,” said Eagles general manager Howie Roseman in a press release. “Jerome is set to a zone scheme. It has a good vision, instincts, running downhill, and has quick feet.”
This is the second consecutive year the Eagles have been changed to Harrison to replace a cash reserve. Last year it was Mike Bell for him. But Harrison out after the season as a free agent.
Harrison had 40 carries for 239 yards, an average of 6.0, with the Eagles last season. Most of this work was in the blowout victory over the Redskins (109 meters) and a season-ending loss to Dallas in which the owners rested Eagles (99 yards).
“I do not know if someone was playing or not, but once I realized it was serious, I was like ‘Cool, you know, play a great coach, great organization,’” Harrison said in a commentary published by the Eagles. “I am very happy to be back.”
Harrison, 28, knows the Eagles system, but can not see much of the countryside. LeSean McCoy will almost certainly get most of the time it takes healthy. Promising freshman Dion Lewis might also have an important role as they continue learning.
Some eagles big names were involved in trade rumors Tuesday, but no other deals materialized.
Raiders talk with quarterback Vince Young Eagles, according to ESPN, but Oakland completed the acquisition of Carson Palmer Cincinnati Bengals.
Asante Samuel was also available, according to the NFL Network. Samuel was acquired in the offseason as well. With three talented cornerbacks in the list, Samuel, 30, seems unlikely to be an Eagle next season. Birds, of course, would rather get something for him, but any offer would have to be dismissed for a player’s value starts in a team still hoping to reach the playoffs.
While some fans were consumed for help defense, large movements are rare in the NFL deadline. Coaches are generally reluctant to give help, starting caliber players mid-season and ready to open new holes.
Since the Eagles were unable to download any other player, you have to cut someone if you decide to activate Brandon Graham in the next three weeks. He is eligible to come off of physics can not make the list after the bounce and has said he expects to be ready to play.
