KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Lee’s Summit West alum Mario Goodrich is signing with the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free-agent per NFL insider Tom Pelissero.
The deal reportedly is worth $217,000 guaranteed, which is more than late-round picks receive.
Goodrich was a standout defensive back at Lee’s Summit West High School, where he tallied 11 interceptions, five pick sixes and 22 touchdowns in his career.
He was a first team All-ACC selection in his senior season at Clemson where he had 48 tackles, two interceptions, nine pass breakups and one forced fumble.
He also won MVP of the Cheez-It Bowl in his final game with the Tigers.
Goodrich will now join an Eagles defense that was one of the better units in the league last season.
