Earlier today, the Philadelphia Eagles traded reserve running back Mike Bell to the Cleveland Browns for former starting running back Jerome Harrison.

Let me first say that Harrison singlehandedly destroyed my fantasy championship hopes last season. Harrison was replaced by Peyton Hillis due to injury.

In Harrison's breakout season (2009), he had 862 yards rushing with five touchdowns and averaged 4.4 yards per carry. Harrison is a hard runner and can really lay the wood on the D. 

In my opinion, the Eagles turned a 100 percent profit on this deal. Mike Bell is nothing compared to Harrison. Bell looked horrible this season in the backup role. With Harrison, the Birds now have a reliable backup or substitute in case LeSean McCoy needs a break or gets injured.

Harrison was originally sidelined because of a hip injury. Hillis stepped into the starting role and performed very, very well.

Something tells me that the Browns will eventually regret this decision. Looks like Tom Heckert loves the Eagles' trash, but hey, someone has to be that guy.
