The Eagles roster is now at 53 after the organization brought back a key special teams player. According to ESPN’s Tim McManus (via Twitter), the team has re-signed linebacker Najee Goode. The 27-year-old was cut by the organization last week.
Goode, a former fifth-round pick out of West Virginia, has been with the Eagles since 2013. The linebacker has appeared in 29 games through his three seasons with the organization, though he missed the majority of the 2014 campaign with an injured pectoral muscle. In his career, Goode has compiled 32 tackles, one sack, and four passes defended. Goode has also established himself as a main contributor to the Eagles’ special teams unit.
Goode was also cut by the Eagles during last season’s preseason, but he rejoined the team in late September. The linebacker actually inked a one-year extension back in February, but that was likely thrown out following his release by the team last week.
