Ronnie Brown won't that whole getting traded, then untraded thing derail his charity efforts. The Eagles RB will visit South Philadelphia High tomorrow morning as part of his initiative to curb violence in schools. Brown says his program "23 WAYS to Stop Youth Violence" was successful in Miami and he’s excited to get it started in Philadelphia.

"The incidents of violence in our schools are becoming more frequent and more brutal, and it has just gotten to the point where enough is enough," said Brown. "We are very proud of how this program was received in Miami and we are extremely excited to bring this initiative to Philadelphia. I hope we can be a part of a positive change in how these kids interact with each other."

Brown was traded to the Lions last week, only to be sent back to Philadelphia when the Eagles discovered that the man he was traded for, Jerome Harrison, had a brain tumor. Whatever we feel about Ronnie Brown's contribution to the team this season, it is great to see him contributing to the community, especially in regards to an issue that I believe is very important in Philadelphia.
