The Eagles waived him with an injury settlement a the start of the 2014 season and later brought him back on a future/reserve contract. Philadelphia didn’t tender him a restricted offer this offseason and he later signed a one-year contract with the Chargers this past March.

Unfortunately, the Chargers cut him loose this past weekend as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players.

In 2016, Barner appeared in 13 games for the Eagles and rushed for 129 yards on 27 carries (4.8 YPC) to go along with five receptions for 42 yards receiving and two total touchdowns.
