Re: Eagles sign Connor Barwin
6. Eagles linebacker Connor Barwin
Signed to a six-year, $36 million contract by Philadelphia, Barwin managed three sacks across 18 starts in Houston last season, including the playoffs. Dating back to 2011, Barwin has three sacks over his last 21 games.
On tape, it is evident that Barwin lacks threatening edge speed. He's "just a guy." The Eagles have publicly attributed Barwin's poor Texans production to the manner in which Wade Phillips used him. In all likelihood, Philly is going to be sorry if its thinks Barwin will spark the pass rush.
The good news is Barwin only received $8 million in guaranteed money. It's a backloaded deal that becomes year to year after 2014. The Eagles are still locked into paying Barwin $8 million over the next two seasons.
