Eagles ship Havili to Colts for DE Geathers
|Jordan among outstanding rush 'backers in draft.|
Fullback Stanley Havili was sent to the Colts for Geathers (6-7, 325), the 2010 sixth-round pick of the Browns who registered a sack last year filling in for an injured starter at nose tackle.
The Eagles think Geathers can play end in the 3-4 defense or inside.
Butler visited the Eagles earlier this week. Though there was legitimate interest in adding him as a role player, he got a two-year contract with the Saints per reports.
Butler's 'in' with the Saints is defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, who coached him with the Cowboys.
Butler (6-2, 245) had 11 sacks in four seasons with the Cowboys.
The Eagles could address outside linebacker early in a draft full of rush linebackers. Topping the list of draftables is Dion Jordan, the 6-7, 240-pound product of Oregon, where Chip Kelly coached. The Eagles have the fourth overall pick.
