The Eagles and Lions made a deal before the NFL trade deadline as Philly traded Ronnie Brown to Detroit for Jerome Harrison and a 2013 seventh round pick.
The Philadelphia Eagles and Detroit Lions made the final move of the 2011 NFL trade deadline. Les Bowen of the Philly Daily News reports that the Eagles traded Ronnie Brown to the Lions for a 2013 seventh round pick and Jerome Harrison.
The NFL trade deadline was at 4:00 p.m. (ET) on Tuesday and news of this trade was made public right at the deadline.
Brown signed with the Eagles in the offseason after spending six seasons with the Miami Dolphins and has made little impact for the Eagles. LeSean McCoy has proven he can handle the bulk of the load so Brown had just 13 carries on the season.
The Eagles trading for Harrison sounds familiar. In 2010, they did a deal with the Browns to bring Harrison to Philly in exchange for Mike Bell. This season he's had 14 carries for 41 yards, one reception for three years and hasn't touched the ball since the third week of the season.
