The Eagles dealt from a position of strength on Friday agreeing to trade running back Felix Jones to the Steelers for pass rushing linebacker Adrian Robinson. The trade is contingent upon both players passing physicals with their new teams.

Jones faced long odds of making an Eagles team that also had LeSean McCoy Bryce Brown and Chris Polk. The former first-round pick signed with the Eagles in mid-May after spending five years in Dallas but fell behind Polk early in camp for the third-string RB job.

Robinson 23 is a second-year pro from Temple. The 6-foot-1 250-pounder played 12 games on special teams for the Steelers as an undrafted rookie in 2012. With the Eagles he'll compete with outside linebackers Chris McCoy and Travis Long for a backup spot.

Robinson had 95 tackles 18 1/2 sacks and two interceptions in his final two years with the Owls.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin called Robinson a "one-trick pony" during a preseason game last year referring to his ability to pressure the QB but do little else. The linebacker responded on Twitter a day later.
