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.

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.
