The Texans lost another free agent today.
Outside linebacker Connor Barwin has agreed to a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles, becoming the second Texans player this week to sign with the NFC East team. Barwin’s contract is for six years and is worth $36 million with incentives that could raise its value to $40 million. That average per year is close to what the Texans offered him before the season began.
In true Barwin fashion, as soon as he agreed to the deal, he tweeted a link to “End of the Road” by Philadelphia R&B group Boyz II Men.
He preceded the link with this: “Crazy couple of days. Hard to put it into words so I guess I’ll let Boyz II Men do the talking.”
Meanwhile, the Texans are putting the full-court press on former Baltimore safety Ed Reed, who sat down with Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips about an hour ago. Phillips said yesterday on Twitter that he hoped the Texans retained Connor because he was one of Phillips’ “all time favorites to coach.”
