"I'm done playing football, but my football career is not over," Barwin said, per the team. "I want to stay involved. I want to help this team wherever I can and also learn the other side of the game from the coaches and the personnel side. There's still a lot that I can learn about the on-field part of the game, as well. I love being around the game. I still want to win a Super Bowl, multiple Super Bowls."
Barwin spent four seasons of his 10-year playing career with the Eagles, playing in 64 games from 2013 to 2016. The edge rusher was out of football this past season but flirted with a return to the game in some fashion.
