The Facts: The Eagles acquired Lawton from the Colts on Friday for a conditional 2009 draft choice.
Diehards Line:The 240-pound fullback appeared in 11 games for the defending Super Bowl champions in 2007. He carried the ball five times for 13 yards and gained 29 yards on four catches, including a touchdown. Lawton also played a role on the Colts' special teams unit. Lawton was a teammate of fullback Dan Klecko in Indianapolis, where Klecko played primarily as a defensive tackle. Lawton is expected to challenge for playing time at fullback with second-year man Jason Davis, rookie free agent Jed Collins and Klecko.
