Trust me bhsman if that were my friend or family member I would be about 10 times harder on him.

I'm glad he got paid but I was surprised about the amount of guaranteed money he got, 8M. That is pretty low considering the contract 6 years 36M. Sean Smith got more guaranteed money, 11M, and his contract is half the length and total amount.

Very low GM, which is good for Philly but not so good for Connor. If the Texans weren't willing to pony up a contract which called for only 8 Mil guaranteed, they had a much lower opinion of his football skills than I thought, and I gotta wonder what all of that talk allegedly coming from Wade Phillips was about how he valued Barwin so highly ?

See all you Barwin fans there is hard proof that Connor Barwin was Jason Babin 2.0. Philly cuts Babin last year who do they replace him with... "Mr Bulls disappear in big games and cant be found in a parades" Connor Barwin.

Barwin and Babin may both be white guys from Michigan, but after that it's apples and oranges IMO.

Since the Eagles are switching to a 3-4 defense, I guess this makes sense. In any case, I wish him the best of luck and hope he has a productive career in Philly. He was an upstanding guy and played hard on every down (at least when I was watching).

Wade Phillips actually liked Barwin a lot.

He was a better player when he leveraged speed rather than strength. He needs to embrace that fact if we wants to make more than $8 million from Philly.

It's easier to say goodbye knowing now that he's a Bill Maher fan. The campaign for the Rage song was bad enough. Maybe someone can get his new Philly address and send him a Jonah Goldberg book as a going-away gift.

Regardless, I liked the guy. Congrats to him for getting paid.

Hoo boy! Barwin will be released after 2013 if he doesn't put up good numbers.

1.3 million in 2013

Jumps 3.6 million to 4.9 in 2014.

Jumps from 4.9 to 6.1 in 2015.

Connor better save and invest wisely this year. He'll be playing on 1-year vet minimum contracts starting 2014.

Probably because our 1st round rookie was waiting in the wings and produced more in limited time.

I remember that just fine. I don't get the "you must think you're a pretty clever guy" part. I'm not sure what you mean by that. I'm clever enough I guess.

Yep, that's almost exactly what I wanted the Texans to sign him for. 2 years 8.2 million is essentially what that contract is, and if he does well, they keep him beyond that. If not, you got him for 4.1m a year for two years. That's a decent deal for a starting OLB.

$1.3M against the 2013 cap. $4.something against the 2014 cap. $2.something dead money if he's cut in 2015...

Sorry, we should have been able to make that deal. Start Merci on the weakside. Start Connor on the strong side. Start Brooks inside. He can still rotate with Merci & Connor on 3rd down, it actually gives you the ability to disguise your 4th rusher on third downs.

Reed can line up at ILB & we can show a 3 man front; Connor, Watt, Antonio (inside the tackle). At the snap, Antonio can rush around & Reed shoot up the middle.... or Antonio can crash down on the Tackle & Guard & Reed can shoot around the outside.
