Connor Barwin likely to play for Eagles next season

Former Texans, Eagles, Rams, and Giants defensive end Connor Barwin is likely to play in Philadelphia next season, according to statements from the man himself:

“I’m trying to come back and play for the Eagles. I’m training right now and I’ve talked to [Eagles GM] Howie [Roseman] and they’re going to see if they need any depth on the edge and so I’m going to wait until camp starts before I sign anywhere else, but obviously I’m not going to wait too long. But the Eagles know that’s where I want to be.” [via Bleeding Green Nation]

Barwin then said on 97.5 The Fanatic:

“I want to keep playing. I want to be in a great situation. Obviously, the best situation for me would be to not have to leave the Eagles … The roster is awesome. They look like they should be in the playoffs again. They have a chance at the Super Bowl, so I feel like this is the perfect situation for me. I can be kind of like how Chris [Long] was the past couple of years. Kind of that fourth edge rusher, if someone gets hurt, I’m there you can trust me to know what I’m doing.” [via TheEaglesWire]

ESPN’s Adam Schefter, also a guest on 97.5 The Fanatic, explained what it’ll take the Eagles to get the 32-year-old back:

“Well, obviously he’s still on the street. He’s only 32 years old so you’re talking about a guy here, again, I think that particularly for a team like the Eagles if they were to suffer some sort of training camp injury to a pass rusher, I think at that point and time he would be the first guy you turn to and try to bring in.”

“He’s a guy you want to have on your team and have in your locker room. I don’t know how much he has left.” [via TheEaglesWire]

Adding Barwin to the Eagles shouldn’t add any competition, however, as the Eagles already have starting defensive ends nor is Barwin starting-caliber. He was released by the Giants following the 2018 season after registering just one sack and 12 tackles to his stats.
