The New York Jets Should Explore Trading for Bryce Brown

Matt Sullivan

For the past two years, Bryce Brown has sat on the sidelines of the Philadelphia Eagles, despite being a home run threat. After being drafted in the seventh round of the 2012 NFL Draft, Brown, who is just 22 years old, has accumulated the following stats:

RUSHING STATS
SEASON GP ATT YDS AVG LNG TD FUM LST
2012 16 115 564 4.9 65 4 4 3
2013 16 75 314 4.2 65 2 0 0
Career 32 190 878 4.6 65 6 4 3
RECEIVING STATS
SEASON GP REC YDS AVG LNG TD FUM LST
2012 16 13 56 4.3 11 0 0 0
2013 16 8 84 10.5 35 0 0 0
Career 32 21 140 7.4 35 0 0 0

Before Bryce was drafted, we discussed his potential red flags and why the team should take a flyer on him. With the addition of Darren Sproles and the existence of Chris Polk, I'd wager the Eagles would be fine moving on without Brown. In fact, according to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer, that is a very real possibility. Two years in, Brown has kept his head down and none of his red flags have materialized.

As the draft progresses, if it is looks like the Jets will not get a running back they want, assuming they're looking, I think they should explore flipping a seventh round pick for Brown. He's a dynamic threat at an undervalued position, and he has home run ability. He would do well with a heavier workload in tandem with Chris Ivory, and he has experience in Marty Mornhinweg's system. What do you think?
