Goode looks set to start at strong-side linebacker after the trade of Antonio Morrison, ESPN 1070 am Indianapolis reports.
Goode was mostly used on special teams last season but registered a career-high 22 tackles (18 solo) across 16 regular-season games with the Eagles.
Indy's linebacking corps are in flux this preseason, so his spot on the depth chart this early doesn't mean he'll win the starting job. Still, he could have a much larger role in the defense than initially anticipated. Goode was mostly used on special teams last season, but registered a career-high 22 tackles (18 solo) across 16 regular-season games with the Eagles.
After missing exactly half of his first 64 games due to injury, Goode didn't miss a single contest for the Eagles in each of the past two seasons. He's mostly a special-teams player but logged a career-high 200 snaps on defense in 2017, accruing 22 tackles along the way. Goode could possibly top that number this season with the Colts given the team's questionable depth at outside linebacker.
Goode once again served as a special teams conributor for the Eagles but did garner three starts, recording 11 tackles (10 solo). The 28-year-old enters 2018 as an unrestricted free agent and is likely to be featured in a similar role next season, wherever he ends up signing.
