The Pittsburgh Steelers on Friday traded linebacker Adrian Robinson to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for running back Felix Jones.
The 26 year-old Jones is expected to help shore up a running back corps that includes injured backs Isaac Redman, LaRod Stephens Howling and rookie Le’Veon Bell.
Jones was a first-round draft pick of the Dallas Cowboys in 2008, but has battled his own injury problems. He has played in 64 NFL games, and has rushed for 2,728 yards and 11 touchdowns.
Jones played in two preseason games for Philadelphia this summer, and rushed 12 times for 45 yards and caught two passes for 12 yards.
