The Eagles robbed the Bills blind.

The Buffalo Bills released running back Bryce Brown on Tuesday, according to multiple reports. The 24-year-old Brown rushed for 126 yards on 36 atttempts (3.5 average) in one season with Buffalo.

This move comes one year after the Bills sent a conditional mid-round pick to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for Brown. The pick had the potential to be as high as a third rounder, but instead the Eagles received Buffalo's 2015 fourth round pick since Brown didn't meet requirements last season. During the 2015 NFL Draft, Philadelphia traded Buffalo's fourth round pick to the Lions in exchange for Detroit's third round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Keep in mind the Eagles originally acquired Brown in the 2012 NFL Draft with a pick they received from the Atlanta Falcons in exchange for Asante Samuel.

With the added benefit of hindsight now, it's completely clear the Eagles robbed the Bills blind in that trade last year.
