ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) 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. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
