Ronnie Brown is Taking His Talents to South Philly
The Eagles continued their Miami Heat-like approach to free agency, adding veteran running back Ronnie Brown.
Since being drafted second overall by the Miami Dolphins in 2005, Brown has a workload of 4,815 rushing yards and 36 touchdowns as well as 1,491 receiving yards.
"Ronnie is an all-around running back with a versatile skill set," Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said in a statement released by the team. "He can run the ball, catch it, and does very well in pass protection. He'll add some good size to our backfield and he's a good character guy. We think he'll be a tremendous compliment to (running back) LeSean McCoy and the other young backs on this team that we really like. You can never have enough good running backs in this league and we are happy to have Ronnie join us."
The Dolphins traded New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush earlier this week and also drafted a running back in the second round.
A few days earlier the Eagles signed this season's most coveted free agent Nnamdi Asomugha and have been stockpiling talent since the lockout was lifted.
