LOL.

Yeah, two years at around $8 mill total...sorry, he hasn't earned that amount.

$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.

I'd rather go OLB in the early rounds of draft and pay much less than Barwin would have had here, especially since he appeared to have been a huge fat zero all year.

The guy is a workout warrior. When was the last time the announcers were screaming his name after he had busted up a play or really impacted the game in a big way?

The guy was the David Carr of the defense while he was here. Great style, fabulously awesome hair, and a knack for really turning it on in camp...good with the media, yada yada.

Philly has become to us what we were to the Broncos, it's the circle of life.

6. Eagles linebacker Connor Barwin

Quote:
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.

Yeah, unless it was for the vet min I didn't want barwin back. And even then id have had to think about it because I'd Luke younger players with higher upside to have a shot and barwin would be in the way of that.

That said, barwin would be a pretty good solb. But that's reeds spot sooooo....
