The Eagles and Colts made a trade earlier today, as the Colts have sent fullback Luke Lawton to the Eagles for a 2009 conditional draft choice. The deal really means nothing to either side unless Lawton makes the Eagles roster, which if he does, then a choice will go to the Colts for him. The 27-year-old has been on the Giants and Bill practice squads, and played in 4 games for the Jets back in 2005, and 11 games for Indy last season.
He has never started a game, but last year did score a TD vs the Jags on a 1-yard shovel pass from Peyton Manning. The Eagles are moving DT Dan Klecko to fullback, but would like to have some more players in the position that have a bit more experience, which is why the did the deal. They had Thomas Tapeh at that position, but he moved from Philly to the Vikings as a free agent this past offseason.
