The Philadelphia Eagles announced Friday that they’ve named former DE Connor Barwin special assistant to the general manager.
Barwin will aid the personnel staff in scouting talent and during the season, he will focus on player development.
Recent reports mentioned that Barwin could be added to the team’s front office in some form, so this isn’t a big surprise.
Barwin, 33, 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 in 2017.
Barwin played one season for the Rams before agreeing to a two-year contract worth up to $5 million with the Giants in 2017. New York released him last year and he later retired in October.
For his career, Barwin recorded 365 tackles, 55.5 sacks, one interception, six forced fumbles, four recoveries and 43 pass defenses over the course of 10 seasons and 142 games.
