The Philadelphia Eagles only made one move before the trade deadline, and it involved the Detroit Lions. The Eagles decided to send-off recent free agent acquisition Ronnie Brown in exchange for ex-Eagle running back Jerome Harrison and a seventh-round pick in 2013. However, the trade was recently voided, following Harrison failing a physical, and both players will return to their respective teams.
The trade was first reported void be ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Due to Harrison’s failed physical, but there will be no way to get the trade back in place, as the deadline has already passed. Brown, who signed in Philadelphia this off-season as a free agent, has seen little playing time and was actually bumped down to third on the depth chart by Eagles rookie Dion Lewis. Harrison who elected to sign in Detroit after being released by the Eagles, was in a similar situation with the Lions.
Regardless, the trade would have to go through at the end of this season, but it more than likely will never materialize as both players only signed one-year deals. Brown’s role for the rest of the season in Philadelphia may not be anything more than a bench-warmer. The ex-Dolphin fell out of favor with the coaching staff following a horrendous turnover during the Eagles vs. 49ers game, which essentially lost Philadelphia the game.
But on that same note, Harrison would not have seen much action either, as Lewis has done a great job this season filling in for LeSean McCoy.
