I agree with you but if we would have extended Barwin before the season started as the post implied we would have been overpaying.

I hope part of Barwin's problem was the additional 20 lbs added in offseason but I wouldn't pay based on that hope.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you hear/ see that he added an additional 20lbs? I haven't seen that, but that would explain at least a slow down in production. 20lbs, I believe, would take some adjusting to. I see he was listed at or around 268lbs this season & his combine weight was listed at 256lbs. The extra 20 could take a toll, but I can't seem to find it.

It was a smart move not to re-sign him as he did decline. It was a smart move to make him earn the money. It's too bad that Rick Smith did not choose to apply this same practice when re-signing Schaub, Walter, & Jacoby.

270lbs sounds about right. Like I said, I saw he was listed at 268lbs. I don't recall what he was listed at last season, but it looks like he gained at least 10-15lbs as opposed to 20lbs. Maybe it had an effect, but its hard to say. I think he just had a down year as far as sacks. Unfortunate for him it may have cost him some money in the process.
