The Philadelphia Inquirer leaves ILB Najee Goode off their 53-man roster projection.
The Eagles are stacked at inside linebacker, with three starting caliber players in Mychal Kendricks, DeMeco Ryans and Kiko Alonso. They also used a third-round pick on Jordan Hicks and have a solid reserve in Brad Jones. So although Goode is a valuable piece, he's on the bubble for now. That will change quickly if Ryans' rehab from an Achilles' tear goes slower than expected or Kendricks ends up traded. May 25 - 10:15 AM

Date:

Eagles placed LB Najee Goode on injured reserve with a pectoral injury, ending his season.

Primarily a special teamer, Goode played 192 snaps on defense last season. Still only 25, he's signed for 2015. He'll compete for one of the Eagles' final roster spots next summer.

Eagles claimed LB Najee Goode off waivers from the Buccaneers and waived LB Emmanuel Acho.

Goode was the Bucs' fifth-round pick in 2012. The Eagles apparently believe he'll be better on special teams than Acho, who was acquired via an offseason trade with the Browns for RB Dion Lewis.

Bucs waived LB Najee Goode.

He'll be a prime candidate for the practice squad after initially making the 53. The Bucs needed to clear room for new receiver Russell Shepard.

Buccaneers signed fifth-round LB Najee Goode to a four-year contract.

Goode worked at all three linebacker positions during Bucs rookie minicamp, and could eventually emerge as a starter on the inside at 6-foot, 244. For now, Goode should be eyeing a top backup role while focusing on special teams.

Bucs selected West Virginia ILB Najee Goode with the No. 140 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

Goode was actually a walk-on at West Virginia, but ended up leading the team in tackles in 2011. At 6'0/244, he'll try to latch on as a run-stuffer in Tampa. He's drawn some light comparisons to Redskins tackle machine London Fletcher.
