ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak believes the team "would like" Bryce Brown to "develop into one of their lead backs."
The Bills gave up a 2015 fourth-rounder that can become a third-rounder for Brown, a relatively high price to pay for a running back. Both C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson are entering the final years of their contracts. Spiller has injury red flags and may never become a true No. 1, while Jackson is 33 1/2 years old. Brown is 23, has a boatload of running talent, and is entering the league's run-heaviest offense. His Dynasty arrow is pointing straight up. Jul 8 - 9:11 AM

Bills acquired RB Bryce Brown from the Eagles in exchange for a conditional 2015 fourth-round pick.

The teams also swapped 2014 seventh-round picks. Brown gets out of Philadelphia, where coach Chip Kelly wasn't particularly high on him. Brown has plenty of juice and running talent but has a tendency to bounce everything outside. In 32 games with the Eagles the past two seasons, he's rushed for 878 yards and six touchdowns on 190 carries (4.6 YPC). Fred Jackson is in the final year of his deal, while C.J. Spiller can opt out of his rookie contract next spring. Brown will serve as depth this season but could be in line for a bigger role come 2015.

The Philadelphia Inquirer wonders if Bryce Brown will be traded on draft day.

We've had the same thoughts. Brown has shown flashes of starting-caliber NFL talent, but began losing backup snaps to Chris Polk last season and the Eagles have since added Darren Sproles. The Eagles could very well be willing to unload Brown for a sixth- or seventh-round pick.

Eagles blogger Sheil Kapadia believes Chris Polk has a better shot at the No. 2 RB job than Bryce Brown in 2014.

Brown had an alarmingly disappointing season in 2013. Continuing to try to bounce virtually every run outside, he was stuffed for no gain or a loss 15 times on just 75 carries. If not for one 65-yard run against the Bears' historically bad rush defense, he would have averaged just 3.36 YPC despite running behind one of the game's premier offensive lines. Brown has plenty of game-breaking talent, but he might not be a fit for Chip Kelly. A trade ahead of May's draft would make sense.

Bryce Brown did not touch the ball in Saturday's Wild Card loss to the Saints.

With the chips were down in the playoffs, the Eagles didn't mess around and take LeSean McCoy off the field. So for just the second time all year, Brown didn't get a single touch. The second-year back lost some backup passing-down duties to Chris Polk this season and continued his bad habit of stretching just about every run to the sideline, but his impressive big-play ability is undeniable. We're confident that if McCoy were to go down, Brown would step in as a legit RB1 -- making him a must-own handcuff in 2014.
Jan 5 - 1:25 AM

Bryce Brown had two carries for 11 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 17 win over the Cowboys.

Brown was a non-factor in the first half, but scored on a six-yard run to give the Eagles an eight point lead late in the fourth quarter. It's the second straight week that Brown has found the end-zone after he ran for 115 yards on nine carries in Week 16. The Eagles primarily use a one-back scheme with LeSean McCoy, but Brown saw a slightly bigger role in the second half. He finishes the regular season with 75 carries for 314 yards (4.2 YPC) and two touchdowns. Brown should continue to see limited touches behind McCoy in Saturday's Wild Card game against the Saints.

Bryce Brown had nine carries for 115 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 16 win over the Bears.

Brown was used in a change-of-pace role behind LeSean McCoy and got a goal-line carry in the third quarter, but failed to convert. His touchdown came on a 65-yard run down the right sideline in mop-up duty. It was an embarrassing performance from the Bears run defense, with all three of the Eagles' running backs getting into the end-zone this week. Brown is now averaging 4.2 yards-per-carry through 15 games.

Bryce Brown said his goal for the 2014 season is to be a No. 1 running back.

"That's obviously a goal of mine going into next year. I think I can," Brown said. "That's what I'm going to be working toward, whether I'm here or I'm somewhere else." That's obviously not going to happen in Philadelphia with LeSean McCoy entrenched as the starter. Brown has been a massive disappointment in coach Chip Kelly's offense, but a senior NFL scout believes Brown "has all of the tools to be an every-down back." Chris Polk has passed Brown on the depth chart in Philly, but the Eagles aren't going to simply cut 22-year-old Brown.

Bryce Brown recorded no touches in Sunday's Week 15 loss at Minnesota.

Brown appeared to play behind Chris Polk. Re-draft owners can move on anyway with LeSean McCoy healthy heading into Week 16.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 06:14:00 PM

Bryce Brown rushed six times for 19 yards in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Lions.

With ball security a concern due to the snowy conditions, the Eagles gave Chris Polk (4/50/1) some reps ahead of Brown. It shouldn't turn into a trend despite Brown's scary 2.93 YPC on the season. He's still the best handcuff option for LeSean McCoy owners.
Sun, Dec 8, 2013 04:55:00 PM

Bryce Brown rushed five times for four yards in Sunday's Week 13 win over the Cardinals.

Brown is now averaging 4.8 carries per game as LeSean McCoy's caddy. He's still the clear-cut backup, but he's averaging a mere 2.91 YPC. It's a little concerning for Brown's potential value should McCoy go down at any point.
Sun, Dec 1, 2013 04:31:00 PM

Bryce Brown rushed four times for two yards and added two catches for 28 yards in Sunday's Week 11 win over the Redskins.

Late in the second quarter, LeSean McCoy went down with what looked like a serious hamstring pull. So for about 15 minutes of real time, it looked like Brown was going to be a huge player down the stretch in fantasy leagues. But McCoy came back out for the second half and appeared to be just fine. Brown remains a must-own handcuff and nothing more.

Bryce Brown rushed four times for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 10 win at Green Bay.

LeSean McCoy busted out of his mini-slump Sunday, rushing 25 times for 155 yards. That left Brown for some scraps late. He's just a guy to keep on your bench in case McCoy gets hurt.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 06:31:00 PM

Bryce Brown rushed seven times for 54 yards in Philadelphia's Week 9 win over the Raiders, adding one catch for six yards.

Brown actually out-rushed LeSean McCoy, who was held to 44 yards on 12 carries. 44 of Brown's yards came on three consecutive carries near the end of the first quarter, where McCoy got a breather for an offense that was tearing through the heart of the Oakland defense. The nice afternoon ups Brown's yards per carry from 2.6 to 3.4. Brown doesn't have weekly fantasy value, but remains one of the league's top handcuffs.
Sun, Nov 3, 2013 08:19:00 PM

Bryce Brown rushed three times for negative-one yard in Sunday's Week 8 loss to the Giants.

Brown is now on pace to rush just 76 times for 196 yards (2.57 YPC) this season. His role isn't nearly as large as originally expected with LeSean McCoy staying healthy and dominant. Perhaps Brown would push McCoy more if he didn't bounce every single run to the sideline.
