The Eagles added LB Connor Barwin. The deal is being reported as 6 years, $36M. We need to wait and see what the real numbers are. Remember that a year ago Demetress Bell signed a 5-year, $35M deal. That turned out to be just a 1-year deal in essence.
What does this mean? I really don’t know. We need to hear the team’s comments about what they expect Barwin to do. If he’s here as the SAM, that is fine. If he’s here primarily as a pass rusher, that’s a head-scratcher.
The length of the deal will tell us how this affects Brandon Graham, Vinny Curry, and the possible drafting of Dion Jordan or Ziggy Ansah.
Several people have asked about trading Trent Cole. We’ll see. He’s not a real valuable commodity right now so keeping him may be the best option.
