    yep, he was labeled as an 'explosive tackle' coming out of M Southern. A lot of Eagles fans are really disappointed to see him go, based on the fact that he was so versatile and solid for the team last season, which tells me he was a great pick up for us, at a 7th rounder no less.

    Nice hit. I like how he got his head and arm in front.

    Was he lined up at RT on that play?

    He's had one of the best LTs in the game around him the last two seasons in Jason Peters. That can be an immense help to Bolles or whoever starts at LT.

Barbre started just 12 games last season; do you know why? and they were ready to cut him at 33 years old. We will see if he beats out who we already have, there is no conclusion that he easily is better than what we had last year ... and its not last year either.
    There are a lot of OL that take a few/many years before they come along - Mathis? - patience is sometimes a good strategy.
    I am rooting for the guys we already have but the competition can't hurt - I don't think.
    I think another big reason they let Barbre go is because he is on his last year of his contract. So with the expectation he plays well for us, it shouldn't be a surprise that he becomes an expensive vet at 34 years old. But that's a better problem to have than another poor season from subpar guard play. I'm hopeful though that Garcia plays better in a power scheme, but time is ticking for him and I believe Schofield is already himself a camp body with all the additions that have been made.

    This is the OL the team wants to put on the field in week 1. No matter if Leary moves back to LG or stays at RG, rookie Bolles will have a veteran presence next to him. This trade likely sends Garcia back to the bench, which is a good thing for the offense.
    A massive improvement to last season's line, at least on paper.

    I got interested when I saw this, but deflated a bit once I read up on the guy. To me this has 'camp body' written all over it. We just got him with a trade instead of getting him via FA. It's competition. It's a piece to the puzzle. It might work out, it might not. I'm just not expecting a lot from him.
    And that is a fair assessment considering he was cut and he still hasn't provided a long history of consistency. But the good news is that if he doesn't make the team, the Broncos can just simply cut him and get the 7th back. Or he provides strong depth at the guard position at very worst, and that would be good because that would mean Garcia put it together. I would also say that it's a little harsh on Barbre to say that he's just a camp body, especially after he was a starter at the position and the 16th best guard in the league. That's infinitely better than what I saw last season on our line if I'm being honest

    He had trouble in his first few seasons with the Packers ... In three seasons with the Packers (drafted 4th round in 2007), Barbre struggled to find a role on the team. Originally tried at left guard for two seasons, Barbre failed to earn a starting spot and was tried at right tackle for the 2009 season. Barbre began the season as the starter, but was ineffective and soon removed from the starting line-up.

    He worked for Miami and Seattle in 2010, getting 0 starts, in 2011 he is credited for 4 games with Seattle. Did not play for anybody in 2012.
    2013 played for the Eagles, had no starts.
    2014, Barbre signed a 3-year extension with the Eagles but suffered a season ending ankle injury in the opener on September 7, 2014 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was placed on injured reserve.

    Finally in 2015, Barbre started all 16 games for the Philadelphia Eagles. With new coach Doug Pederson in 2016, Barbre won the starting left guard position starting in 12 games.

    We can use the competition in camp ... that's good.
    BUT, we have some young OL that could start coming on - Garcia, McGovern maybe even Schofield? - Barbre took a lot of years to finally start 1 full season and then 12 last season. I hope one of the guys we already have will not lose out to Barbre.
    I don't care how long it took him. He was easily better than anything we had at guard last year. All that matters is where he is now. Not where he was 8 years ago.

    Interesting read. http://www.nj.com/eagles/index.ssf/2...he_eagles.html

    Barbre's experience doesn't bring much inspiration considering how much he moved around and how little starting experience he had. However, last year in PHI he really seems to have crossed some kind of bridge starting 12 games, allowing 2 sacks and 14 pressures.

    If anything, another camp body to compete that also has a real chance over some guys currently on the roster.

    They may be trying to do that. Looking at Spotrac it looks like they're at about where you mentioned. I'd assume they'd like to have some cap space left over for emergency signings or for next year's free agency
