The Buffalo Bills' busy draft weekend continued on Saturday, as they acquired running back Bryce Brown from the Eagles in exchange for a conditional 2015 fourth-round pick. The news was first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The pick could become a 2015 third- or fourth-round pick or a 2016 third- or fourth-rounder, depending on how Brown performs, and the teams also swapped 2014 seventh-round picks (the Eagles got the 224th pick and the Bills moved down to 237).

Brown, 22, a seventh-round pick out of Kansas State in 2012, rushed for 878 yards and six touchdowns in two seasons with the Eagles as LeSean McCoy's backup. But in the first season under Chip Kelly last year, he saw his carries decrease by 40 from his rookie year -- 115 to 75.

Brown, who has two years left on his rookie deal, will now team with Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller, who are both entering the final years of their contracts.

The Eagles acquired Darren Sproles in a trade two months ago.

After moving up in a trade to acquire wide receiver Sammy Watkins, the Bills traded veteran wide receiver Stevie Johnson to the 49ers on Friday.
