Lions make deal for Ronnie Brown

With concerns about the health of Jahvid Best, who suffered his second concussion of the season on Sunday, the Detroit Lions acquired running back Ronnie Brown in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Lions dealt running back Jerome Harrison and a 2013 draft pick in order to bring Brown on board.

It’s the second tour of duty in Philadelphia for Harrison, who the Eagles picked up from the Cleveland Browns in a trade last year. Brown goes to a place where he may have more of a chance to play now that he’s not behind LeSean McCoy. Harrison is familiar with the Eagles system so he should fit in quickly.
