LB Barwin And Eagles Agree On A Six-Year Deal

The Eagles added some much needed muscle and attitude to their linebacking core on Thursday, coming to terms on a six-year deal with LB Connor Barwin.

In four seasons with the Houston Texans, Barwin, 6-4, 268, registered 109 tackles, 19 sacks, two fumble recoveries and 16 passes defensed.

A second-round draft pick (46th overall) of the Texans in 2009, Barwin, 26, played in 109 games (82 starts) and is second on the Texans’ all-time sacks record.

He shifted to outside linebacker from defensive end following the 2010 season and responded to the move with a team-high 11.5 sacks in 2011, which ranked third in the AFC.

    cldnt be happier with the direction chip is taking the team. having all out competitors combined with the unique talent on offense and d line depth, talent, youth and potential. this is exciting what a ‘new’ voice might get across that an old head couldnt! now go sign andre smith at rt. draft star (way better than jean-francois) and matt elam (way better than coleman) we could be the surprise of the season
