Ronnie Brown 'Lost For Words' Regarding Trade Between Eagles And Lions Being Canceled

Ronnie Brown has had a rather up and down last 30 hours, give or take. In that regard, fans will have to excuse him for being “lost for words” when asked to comment about his trade from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Detroit Lions falling through.

On Tuesday, following the NFL trade deadline, Brown noted that he was excited that the Lions had acquired the running back in exchange for Jerome Harrison and a future seventh round pick.

“I’m excited about it,” Brown said. “Obviously, I think I have an opportunity to play, which is always good, and that’s my goal, to be able to be a part of something and feel like you’re a part of it and actually go in and contribute a little bit.”

Just hours — and a failed Harrison physical — later, however, Brown’s reaction was much different.

Dave Birkett, the Lions beat writer for the Detroit Free Press, tweeted that Brown was “lost for words” regarding the trade being null and void through no fault of his own.

One has to wonder how the Lions front office feels about this, too, as they essentially apparently sent damaged good to the Eagles in exchange for what probably would have been Jahvid Best’s replacement this week if he’s out due to injury.
