The deal makes sense for both clubs. Lewis will figure into the mix for the No. 2 job in Cleveland behind Trent Richardson. Obviously, Eagles coach Chip Kelly didn’t view him as a good fit for his offense.
Acho, a sixth-round draft pick of the Browns last season from Texas, projects for the 3-4 defense Philadelphia is running. At 6-2, 238 pounds, he is a bigger player to fit into the scheme like Kelly desires. Acho missed his entire rookie season on injured reserve with a leg issue.
