Found June 02, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
Eagles running back Bryce Brown had a hard time holding onto the football during his rookie year.  He racked up four fumbles, which is never good for any offensive player. Running backs coach Deuce Staley has Brown working with a weighted ball to help him shake his case of fumblitis. “I think they’re eight pounds,” Brown said, via CSNPhilly.com. “We do a lot of work with that. Run a whole lot. A lot. Cutting. Things like that. “When you go back and watch film, a lot of cuts I make, the ball kind of got extended. With the weighted balls, it teaches me to keep the ball in tight.” Aside from the fumbles last season, Brown looked like he belongs in the NFL and will have a bright future.     Need NFL Tickets?
