ProFootballFocus on Barwin's signing, reads bottom up...
18.05: And the numbers are in for Connor Barwin to the Eagles. It’s a six-year deal for $36m for a guy who was our second lowest ranked 3-4 outside linebacker last year. That one isn’t going to score well on the old Deal Grader is it? On the plus side only $8m is guaranteed. Unless his play takes a giant leap, hard to see him seeing much of that money.
17.40: SIGNING! Per Tania Ganguli the deal is done and the Eagles are signing Connor Barwin. It’s something of a surprise and has you asking a lot of questions about the future of Trent Cole in Philadelphia. You can check out our twitter timeline and our comments from 16.50 with what we think about this signing. Essentially we don’t see it making the Eagles a better team.
16.50: It’s not official yet, but Jason La Canfora is reporting that the team set to overpay for Connor Barwin is … the Philadelphia Eagles. Barwin put up some good sack numbers back in 2011 and as a report was the coolest pass rusher in town. It didn’t matter that Wade Phillips ultra attacking defense drew blockers away from him and his pass rushing productivity score was only an 8.7 (17th best out of all 3-4 outside linebackers). In any case he’s coming off a year where that number dropped to 5.8. The fourth lowest of any 3-4 outside linebacker. That helped him to a
grade. Still, not as bad as Erik Walden.
