Source: Eagles ship RB Ronnie Brown to Lions

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Eagles have sent running back Ronnie Brown to the Lions in exchange for a 2013 seventh-round pick and running back Jerome Harrison.

The No. 2 overall pick of 2005 from Auburn, who the club signed during free agency, recorded 13 carries for 38 yards this season as an Eagle.

Brown will be remembered for his ill-advised fumble/throwback at the goal line against the 49ers in Week four.

The big bruising back saw the ball just once more following the controversial play.

The runner the Eagles obtained, Harrison, played for the team last season and registered 40 attempts for 239 rushing yards and a touchdown.

With the Lions, the Washington State alum generated 14 carries for 41 yards.
