NFL: Eagles send CB Brown, LB Gocong to Browns
PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Eagles have traded cornerback Sheldon Brown and linebacker Chris Gocong to the Cleveland Browns for linebacker Alex Hall and two draft picks.
The Eagles will receive picks in the fourth (105th) and fifth (137th) rounds in the upcoming NFL draft. The deal was announced Friday.
Brown has been a longtime starter for the Eagles, but was unhappy with his contract situation. Gocong had just signed a one-year deal.
Hall played two seasons with the Browns, starting just two games.
