Good move by the Eagles. The backfield was getting crowded...

Hmmm

I loved the kid at Pittsburgh. Kind of an odd trade. He'd be our 3rd or 4th string RB.

This reminded of this great youtube video of Emmanuel's brother, Sam, who plays for the Cardinals.

...and boom, goes the dynamite. Neon Dion now with the Browns. Trent Richardson should clean out his locker right about...now.

That was possibly the most adorable thing Ive ever seen from an NFL player.

Props to Sam.

Little guy, but he fights for yards and is a nice backup, sadly he have proven to be an at best average returner.

Of course, Eagles DC Billy Davis was Acho's LBs coach last year in Cleveland.

Lewis isn't bad at all, he should make the team and I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up as the primary backup. He's still only 22 as well.

This is one of those really random trades lol

Don't hate it though. Acho was never going to see the field with our depth at LB.

Agreed, I don't think Acho sucks. I just have no clue where he would play. LJ Fort and Craig Robertson would have been ahead of him.

This. People give Lewis grief because with the emergence of Bryce Brown out of nowhere and of course Lesean McCoy he didn't get a lot of touches last season in his second year. Given the fact in a Andy Reid offense the other two didn't touch the ball as much as they should have it's no surprise to me. What the Browns are getting is a smaller version of McCoy IMO. Not saying top 3 type talent but the ability to make quick cuts, catch the ball out of the backfield and for now (no injuries to Trent) a good change of pace RB to counter Richardson power. Not only will he make the team but assuming he picks the offense up quick enough will end up pushing for the #2 spot as Trents backup. Good trade for Cleveland ,decent trade for the Eagles because we already have depth at RB not including any draft pick Chip makes (Barner/ Lattimore) getting something for nothing (player to be cut) works too.

Back when I was in Highschool before Dion Lewis went pro, I saw the 49ers draft guys working him out as a returner at Pitt. It was awesome.

I like Dion Lewis. I hope he does well, just not in Cleveland. Wink
