Right before the NFL trade deadline, the Eagles traded Ronnie Brown to the Detroit Lions for Jerome Harrison and a 7th round draft pick in 2013. Yesterday, the trade was cancelled because Jerome Harrison failed his physical after Eagles doctors discovered he had a brain tumor. Imagine what would have happened if Harrison never got traded? Who knows when he would have eventually found out. Harrison won’t play the rest of the season, but the prognosis is good and he is expected to recover. We at the Sports with Balls Show wish Harrison a speedy recovery.
The Philadelphia Eagles and Detroit Lions made a huge splash before the trading deadline. The Eagles received Jerome Harrison (yes the same guy from last year) and a 7th round draft pick in 2013 while the Detroit Lions received Mr. Halfback Option, Ronnie Brown. Ronnie Brown really fell out of favor with the Eagles after the disastrous halfback option pass in the San Francisco game. Brown only had two carries since the Redskins game and finished his fabulous Eagles career with 13 carries for 38 yards. Harrison, a backup in Detroit behind Jahvid Best, only had 14 carries for 41 yards this season. As a backup to LeSean McCoy last year, Harrison was fairly successful, averaging 6.0 yards a carry on 40 carries.
