The Eagles acquired first-year FS David Sims from the Browns in a trade Friday. The Browns will receive a conditional 2013 draft pick in exchange.
Sims, an Iowa State product, had two interceptions for Cleveland during the preseason and a third pick was negated by a penalty. He had earned praise from Browns head coach Pat Shurmur for his play on defense and special teams.
Sims confirmed the deal on his Twitter, writing, "One door closes, another open! Headed to the Eagles!!''
