The Cleveland Browns have added depth to the running back position, acquiring Dion Lewis from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for linebacker Emmanuel Acho.

Lewis, who was drafted by the Eagles in the fifth round of the 2011 draft, played in nine games last season, recording just 69 yards rushing on 13 carries. His primary role on the team was on the kick return where he recorded 669 yards on 31 returns for an average of 21.6. The Browns will likely use him in a similar role with the loss of Josh Cribbs to free agency.
