Bryce Brown Trade: Did the Eagles get a good deal from Buffalo?

Bryce Brown has been traded to the Buffalo Bills in exchange for draft picks. Did the Eagles make a good trade?

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

As we mentioned earlier, the Philadelphia Eagles have traded running back Bryce Brown to the Buffalo Bills. The Eagles received draft picks in return, but it's kind of complicated. Here a look at exactly what the Eagles received from the Bills in exchange for Brown.

The pick is conditional because it's the one the Bills received on Friday from the 49ers in the Stevie Johnson trade. So basically Eagles fans should be rooting for Stevie Johnson to have a good year in San Francisco in order to make the Eagles' future pick better.

Brown wasn't particularly effective for the Eagles last season. It seems like Chip Kelly wanted to go in a different direction at running back considering their trade for Darren Sproles and their rumored pre-draft interest in ball carriers.

For the Eagles to get a future mid-round pick for a player at a devalued position who wasn't long for their roster seems like a good trade to me. Brown was the Eagles' 7th round pick in 2012 (229). The Eagles have now transformed that pick into a future mid-rounder.

What do you think? Grade the trade below.
