- Jason La Canfora reports that Barwin will receive a six-year deal worth $36 million that could max out at $40 million with guarantees.
- Adam Caplan has confirmed that Barwin will receive $8 million guaranteed.
The early numbers looked to be very high, but the fact that he’s only guaranteed makes this seem like a more reasonable contract. It’s doubtful that he’ll ever receive all $40 million included in this deal.
Philadelphia has already signed a whole new secondary, but haven’t managed to add another pass rushing linebacker for their new 3-4 defense. They’ve reportedly been close to reaching a deal with Barwin for a day or so, but Victor Butler has also been linked to Philadelphia.
