The Eagles have acquired 27-year old inside linebacker Demeco Ryans and a 3rd round pick from the Houston Texans for a 3rd and 4th round pick. The Eagles will be dropping back 12 slots in the 3rd round in their exchange of picks in that round with the Texans. Ryans played in 16 games for the Texans last year and he had 64 tackles, 6 tackles for a loss, 4 passes defensed and 1 forced fumble. Ryans played in 86 games in his six years with the Texans and he had 637 tackles, 8.5 sacks, 32 tackles for a loss, 6 forced fumbles, 8 fumble recoveries, 25 passes defensed and 2 interceptions. This is a great move for the Eagles as they had big time issues stopping the run and Ryans is a tackling machine.
