Default Re: Reasonable price for Barwin?

From Walterfootball:

Quote:
Eagles sign DE/OLB Connor Barwin (6 years, $36 million): C Grade
I thought Connor Barwin could be available for a reasonable price in free agency based on his down 2012 campaign, but apparently not. I have no idea how he did it, but Barwin obtained $36 million over six years despite registering three sacks last season.

The Eagles had to find either a 4-3 Under strongside linebacker or a third 3-4 rush linebacker - particularly one with experience in the scheme - to rotate with Trent Cole and Brandon Graham. Acquiring Barwin would have been a good idea because he could bounce back to his 11.5-sack level, but not at this price. Philadelphia is definitely buying low.

I feel the same way. They overpaid him for what he has done in the last two years.
