Bills add backup RB Bryce Brown in trade with Eagles


The Buffalo Bills can't stop, won't stop.

They made another trade today, and this one has more turns than the hedge maze in "The Shining."

The Bills sent a conditional 2015 fourth-round draft choice to the Philadelphia Eagles and swapped this year's seventh-round slots for backup running back Bryce Brown.

The conditional pick is based on what the Bills acquired from the San Francisco 49ers for Stevie Johnson. If that becomes a third-rounder, then the Bills will instead give the Eagles a 2016 fourth-round pick.

And the pick the Bills send to the Eagles will become a 2016 third-rounder if Brown hits certain rushing incentives.

Brown is entering his third NFL season. The seventh-round selection from Kansas State played in all 32 of Philadelphia's games, starting five.

He rushed for 564 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie. In his first two career starts, he ran for 178 yards and 169 yards, with two touchdowns in each.

Brown ran for 314 yards and two touchdowns last season.
