@taniaganguli: Numbers on this Eagles deal are close to what Barwin was offered pre-season by the #Texans. He didn't lose money by waiting.

Dream Team II? Never as good the 2nd time around.

According to the poll, beerlover thinks Barwin's contract is spot on. BullBlitz thinks the Eagle got a bargain.

Bargain Barwin? Nah.

They have a lot of options to fix both ILB and OLB .... but they did lose a large portion of their LBer corps - James , Dobbins , Barwin.

I think they look at the most dynamic player at either position early then look for value at the other spot later on in the draft.

Thank God we didn't come to an agreement with him.

We dodged a bullet on that one!

Also, man Barwin's agent has got to be one of the best if he negotiated this deal.

OMG. Barwin would be despised here had he gotten that contract and put up 3 sacks. I don't know if Rick Smith is smarter than we thought. But, he's definitely luckier than we thought.

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.
http://walterfootball.com/freeagents2013recap.php

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

We sign 2 FA players two years ago and have been in cap hell. The eagles assemble an entire dream team of top tier FAs 2 seasons ago, it didnt work out so they release half of them and are now on dream team version 2.0. WTF

Philly is spending as if there were no cap. I'd hate to see the team in 2 years when they have to jettison players because of these contracts.

Although, most of them are for only a few years and they saved a lot of jack by cutting Nnamdi.
