Eagles trade WR Reggie Brown to Buccaneers

The Eagles traded WR Reggie Brown to the Buccaneers on Monday. NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported that the trade is for a sixth-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, according to a league source.

The Bucs are looking for additional receivers after coach Raheem Morris told the St. Petersburg Times on Thursday that the team was moving on from Antonio Bryant, its leading receiver in 2008. Bryant will visit the Bengals on Tuesday.

Brown has been a disappointment for the Eagles over the past two seasons. After posting a career-high 61 receptions in 2006, he scored the most touchdowns in his career (nine) the following season. Since then, however, Brown has just 27 receptions.

The Eagles gave WR Jason Avant a five-year contract extension Monday.
