$2 mill-per-year? Fine. I wouldn't like even that amount, but I'd manage to stomach it.
34 OLBs are extremely expensive. If you count Barwin at 4.1m a year average, then he would be the 13th highest paid OLB (this is not including 43 DEs). There are a bevy of OLBs on their rookie contracts behind that 4m mark including Orakpo, Matthews, Aldon Smith and more, all of which will command much more than 4m a year when their rookie deals end. The Eagles actually made a good deal here, Barwin is at least a decent starter, and he's being paid below average money at the position. I personally would have liked to keep him for that much, but if we are going to spend that kind of money I would prefer spending a bit more to keep Quin instead.
