The Eagles will re-sign linebacker Najee Goode to a one-year deal, reports Dan Graziano of ESPN.com. The pact is worth $875K, per Jason Fitzgerald of Over the Cap, and contains a $50K signing bonus and a $50K workout bonus.
Goode, 26, is almost exclusively a special teams player. In 2016, he played all of two defensive snaps, but did see time on more than two-thirds of the Eagles’ special teams plays. Although he’s spent the past four years in Philadelphia, 2016 marked the first season in which Goode appeared in all 16 games. Originally a fifth-round pick of the Buccaneers, Goode has played in 48 games during his five-year NFL career.
The Eagles re-signed Goode to a one-year pact last offseason, as well, and although he was released at final cutdowns, Goode re-upped with Philadelphia before the club’s first regular season contest.
