Eagles’ Bryce Brown says he wants to be starting running back next season


Philadelphia Eagles running back Bryce Brown is tired of sitting on the sidelines apparently as the 22-year-old told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he plans to be a number one running back in 2014, be it in Philadelphia or elsewhere:

Brown said that he will have a goal next season: to be a No. 1 running back.

“That’s obviously a goal of mine going into next year. I think I can,” Brown said. “That’s what I’m going to be working toward, whether I’m here or I’m somewhere else.”

The second year talent out of Kansas State has been awful in Chip Kelly’s offense, leading some to believe the team will part ways with Brown – especially after he was passed up by Chris Polk on the depth chart.

Brown obviously won’t be taking over the starting duties in Philadelphia any time soon with LeSean McCoy firmly entrenched, so it appears the former Wildcat will need to venture to greener pastures for his dreams to become a reality.

That will likely require a trade as the Eagles understandably won’t cut Brown.

    This article is horrible. Bryce Brown has really showed signs of improvement this season. His numbers may be lower than last year but he seems to have fixed his fumbling problem with no fumbles on 75 carries. He easily is one of the best back-up HB’s in the league. He compliments LeSean McCoy greatly and really shines in Chip Kelly’s offense. This article stating that he is “awful” is simple just not true.
