Report: Colts Trade For Eagles FB Stanley Havili

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Philadelphia Eagles have traded FB Stanley Havili to the Indianapolis Colts for DE Clifton Geathers.

With the Eagles signing James Casey, who’s more of a versatile player, Havili was largely expendable now that they’ve brought in Chip Kelly as their new head coach.

Havili, 25, was rated as a slightly above average fullback last season by Pro Football Focus. Overall, he’s much better blocker than a pass-catching option out of the backfield.

Geathers, 25, was limited to playing just 152 snaps for the Colts last season and was largely ineffective. He does have experience playing 3-4 defensive end, so there’s a chance they could develop him into a decent player at some point.
