The Philadelphia Eagles continue to remake their defense, one mid-priced free agent at a time. So much for drafting and developing.
The latest pickup is a pass rusher who should be just hitting his prime. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that the Eagles added Connor Barwin on a six-year, $36 million contract in which he's able to earn up to $40 million. Barwin is guaranteed $8 million in the first two years of the deal and will be paid $13.5 million in the first three.
