[googlead tip=”lista_medie” aliniat=”dreapta”] Ronnie Brown signed one year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles Tuesday afternoon.
Howie Roseman, Philadelphia Eagles GM, has declared:
“Ronnie is an all-around running back with a versatile skill set”.
“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 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.”
However, Ronnie Brown is a bigger, by about 20 pounds, version of McCoy, though he’s not as quick.
