ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – The Buffalo Bills have acquired running back Bryce Brown in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles.
In the trade made Saturday, Buffalo and Philadelphia swapped seventh-round picks in this year's draft. The Bills also gave up a conditional draft pick — either a fourth-rounder next year or a third-round selection in 2016.
In landing Brown, the Bills fixed a need for a depth without having to address it in the draft. He'll serve in a backup role behind co-starters Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller.
Brown has 190 carries for 878 yards and six touchdowns in 32 games in two seasons with the Eagles.
As a rookie, he combined for 347 yards rushing in his first two starts filling in for LeSean McCoy. Fumble issues, however, limited his playing time last year.
