The Philadelphia Eagles big splash offseason continues with the signing of RB Ronnie Brown.

The Philadelphia Eagles offseason continues and what an offseason it's been. After acquiring cornerbacks Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Nnamdi Asomugha, the team has reeled in former No. 2 overall pick RB Ronnie Brown

Brown left the Miami Dolphins in free agency and was reportedly deciding between four teams, including the Chargers, Ravens and Rams.

It would appear the Eagles are going for it all this year so Brown could end up playing a decent-sized role on the team but that's something we'll know more about when he gets into training camp on Aug. 4.

He was the Dolphins first round pick in the 2005 NFL draft and has spent his entire career in Miami. Brown split carries with RB Ricky Williams in his final years in Miami so still has some tread remaining. He was also one of the players that ran the Wildcat with them so that'll be a formation to watch for in Philadelphia.  2010 was the first year Brown didn't average four yards per carry when he finished the season with 734 yards on 200 carries. He's hit the 1,000 yard mark once in his career
