The Eagles have been busy extending the contracts of several players since the end of the regular season and that effort has now extended to re-signing one of their impending free agents.

Linebacker Najee Goode was set to become a restricted free agent next month, but the Eagles avoided the whole tender offer exercise and signed Goode to a one-year deal on Wednesday. Financial terms were not disclosed.

“It feels great just to have another opportunity to come for the Eagles,” Goode said, via the team. “I’ve been here for three years going on four, and there’s been a lot of new changes and it’s a fresh start for everybody, and after signing the new deal, it’s definitely a fresh start [for me].”

Goode was released by the Eagles at final cuts last September, but returned a couple of weeks later and played 14 games for the team. Most of his work came on special teams, including recovering a blocked punt for a touchdown in the team’s victory over the Patriots in December.

    It would not surprise me at all if we saw the following from the Eagles in the coming weeks.
    1. Release Demeco Ryans
    2. Shop Kiko Alonso
    3. Shop Connor Barwin.

    There may be those within the organization that believe Kendricks, Hicks, Goode and a rookie LB may be able to transition to the 4-3 defense.

    Even though Barwin projects as a Defensive end…not sure that really suits him?
