"I didn't know if somebody was playing or not, but then once I realized it was serious, I was like 'Cool,' you know, play for a great coach, great organization," Harrison said about Tuesday's trade, according to the Eagles' official website. "I'm excited to be back. The week off will be huge to get back in the playbook and start hearing the terminology again. I have been checking out the Eagles to see how LeSean (McCoy) is doing, and he's doing great. I'm excited to be back."
"We're excited to reacquire Jerome Harrison and add another draft pick in 2013," Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said in a statement released by the team. "Jerome had a lot of success in Philadelphia last season, and he adds another back to LeSean McCoy and Dion Lewis contingent. We want to thank Ronnie Brown for his contributions over the past six games and we wish him the best of luck in Detroit."
