- According to Ian Rapoport, Barwin receives a two-year contract worth up to $5 million.
Barwin said recently that he planned to decide on one of the current offers he has before the start of training camp and it looks like the Giants proved to be his best option.
Barwin, 31, is a former second-round pick of the Texans back in 2009. He was entering the fifth year of his six-year, $36 million contract that included $8 million guaranteed when the Eagles released him last year,
The Rams later signed him to a one-year contract and he’s once again testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent.
In 2017, Barwin appeared in 14 games for the Rams and recorded 34 tackles, five sacks and a fumble recovery. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 103 edge rusher out of 106 qualifying players.
