The Philadelphia Eagles acquired fullback Luke Lawton from Indianapolis on Friday for a conditional draft choice in 2009. Lawton played 11 games with the Colts last season in a reserve role and on special teams. He rushed for 13 yards on five carries, with 29 yards and one touchdown on four receptions.

Originally signed by Buffalo as a rookie free agent out of McNeese State in 2004, Lawton spent time on the Bills and New York Giants practice squads during his rookie season.

He was also a member of the Jets' practice squad for most of the 2005 season, and played in four games on special teams. Lawton spent most of the 2006 season on the Colts' practice squad.
