Aug. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Ronnie Brown joined the Philadelphia Eagles, adding a running back to a free-agency haul that has made the National Football League team Super Bowl favorites.

Brown, 29, signed a one-year contract, the Eagles said in a news release that didn’t disclose financial terms of the deal.

“He can run the ball, catch it and does very well in pass protection,” Howie Roseman, the team’s general manager, said in the news release. “He’ll add some good size to our backfield and he’s a good character guy.”

The Eagles joined the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots as Super Bowl favorites with Las Vegas oddsmakers after adding cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins and defensive end Jason Babin in free agency. The team also acquired cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in a trade that sent quarterback Kevin Kolb to the Arizona Cardinals.

Brown, a 2008 Pro Bowl selection, was chosen second overall in the 2005 draft by the Miami Dolphins, and gained 4,815 yards and scored 36 touchdowns in six seasons with the team. He ranks third on the Dolphins’ career rushing list, behind Larry Csonka and Ricky Williams.
