The Indianapolis Colts have signed former Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Najee Goode following a visit on Wednesday. Goode plays linebacker and is also a special teamer.

Goode is 6 ft., 244 lbs. and was a fifth round pick out of West Virginia in the 2012 NFL Draft. He played in 16 games, starting three in Philadelphia last season. He combined for 22 tackles, including 18 solo tackles and four assists. In his career, Goode has combined for 42 tackles, 4.0 tackles for loss, one sack, and four passes defensed.

The Colts linebacking core needed a lot of work coming into this offseason. While Goode may get time on special teams, he gives the Colts depth at the linebacker position that they will sorely need moving forward.
