Barwin announced his retirement Monday, Adam Caplan of Sirius XM reports.
Barwin floated out the idea of re-signing with the Eagles this offseason, but an offer never came to fruition. Across 132 career games, the edge rusher recorded 368 tackles (272 solo), 56.5 sacks and seven forced fumbles in stints with the Texans, Eagles, Rams and Giants.
Barwin has been in contact with the Eagles about a possible return, Mike Greger of Heavy.com reports.
Barwin was cut loose by the Giants in January, but he isn't ready to hang it up just yet. "I'm trying to come back and play for the Eagles," stated Barwin. "I'm training right now and I've talked to Eagles GM Howie Roseman and they're going to see if they need any depth on the edge."
Barwin is getting released by the Giants on Tuesday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports.
Barwin appeared in 15 games for the Giants this year, totaling just 12 tackles, including one sack, and four passes defensed. He's expressed a desire to play in 2019 and could get an opportunity as a veteran backup with another club.
Barwin (knee) was a full participant in Friday's practice and will play in Sunday's game against the Texans.
Barwin's practiced reps escalated throughout the week, as he was limited Thursday and then ultimately able to go through a full session Friday. He will now enter the weekend without an injury designation, so expect the linebacker to be a full go in Houston.
Barwin (knee) was a non-participant in Wednesday's practice.
Barwin has been nursing a knee injury since preseason and doesn't appear nearing a recovery. With Olivier Vernon (ankle) also questionable to suit up against the Texans on Sunday, the Giants could enter Week 3 missing two options at the outside linebacker position.
Barwin (knee) took part in individual drills Monday, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
Barwin, limited for the last three weeks due to lingering knee soreness, was reportedly spotted wearing a compression sleeve on his right knee. The pass-rush specialist could see an opportunity for increased snaps with Olivier Vernon (ankle) sidelined, but he'll need to fully participate in practice first. Barwin figures to serve a rotational role opposite Vernon throughout the regular season.
Barwin will miss Friday's preseason game against the Lions due to an injury.
The nature of Barwin's injury has yet to be revealed by the club, but the veteran linebacker will take a night off to rest it. When he retakes the field, Barwin is expected to serve as a pass-rush specialist again in 2018 and is a candidate to start opposite Olivier Vernon.
Barwin is signing with the Giants, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports.
This addition makes an awful lot of sense for a New York team in transition to a 3-4 base defense, considering Barwin played under Wade Phillips in Los Angeles last season and also spent time in 3-4 schemes during stints with the Eagles and Texans. Working on a streak of five consecutive seasons with at least 34 tackles and five sacks, the 31-year-old linebacker figures to enter the mix for a starting job opposite Olivier Vernon. Barwin should have a good chance to beat out Kareem Martin and Lorenzo Carter, though an every-down role is probably out of the question.
Barwin is scheduled to visit with the Cardinals this week, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
A 2009 second-round pick, Barwin has ample experience working as both a 3-4 outside linebacker and a 4-3 defensive end, with five or more sacks in each of the last five seasons. He had 11.5 sacks for the Texans in 2011 and 14.5 for the Eagles in 2014, accounting for 47.7 percent of his total (54.5) through 126 career games. The 31-year-old had 34 tackles and five sacks in 14 games for the Rams last season while primarily operating as a 3-4 OLB. He'd likely spend more time with his hand in the dirt if he were to sign with a Cardinals team that's transititioning to more 4-3 looks under new head coach Steve Wilks.
Barwin is set to become a free agent after recording 34 tackles (26 solo) and five sacks during the 2017 campaign.
The veteran edge rusher primarily slotted in as an outside linebacker in Wade Phillips' 3-4 defensive scheme and had a respectable showing. Barwin could return to the Rams because of his familiarity with the organization and the success of defense as a whole. However, Los Angeles wasn't an ideal setup for Barwin's virtual value, so it might take a change of scenery for him to show statistical improvement. His fantasy outlook will remain up in the air until he signs a deal.
Barwin recorded five tackles (four solo) and one sack Sunday against the Seahawks.
Barwin now has five sacks through 12 games this season. His inconsistency is troubling, though, since he had just six tackles in the five games before Sunday's outing, making him a risky play in the championship week ahead.
According to head coach Sean McVay, Barwin (forearm) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
Barwin fractured his arm in Week 12 against the Saints and has missed every game since. His full participation Wednesday indicates that he will be available Week 15, however, as he and the rest of the Rams' defense try to slow down the Cowboys. Barwin has four sacks so far this season.
Barwin (forearm) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
Barwin will be sidelined for the second straight contest with the fractured left forearm, but despite the serious-sounding nature of his injury, the linebacker doesn't appear to be a shutdown candidate just yet. He was able to practice in a limited capacity Friday, offering optimism that he'll gain clearance to play at some point during the Rams' final three games of the regular season.
Barwin (forearm) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Head coach Sean McVay indicated earlier this week that Barwin isn't expected to be available for Week 14, but he was able to put in a limited practice Friday to earn the questionable tag. The 31-year-old isn't likely to be available against the Eagles, but he has yet to be officially ruled out.
Rams head coach Sean McVay said Monday that he expects Barwin (forearm) to miss the team's Week 14 matchup with the Eagles, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.
Barwin sustained a fractured left forearm in the Rams' Week 12 win over the Saints and looks like he could be at risk of missing the rest of the season, though the team will continue to evaluate him on a game-by-game basis for now. His absence from Sunday's victory over the Cardinals resulted in additional snaps for Ethan Westbrooks, who took advantage of the opportunity by recording four tackles and two sacks.
The Rams have ruled Barwin (arm) out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports.
Barwin fractured his left arm in the Week 12 win over the Saints, so there's a real possibility he could be moved to season-ending injured reserve this week. The 31-year-old has amassed 25 tackles and four sacks across 11 games this season.
Barwin fractured his arm during Sunday's victory over New Orleans and is out indefinitely, Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Barwin underwent surgery to repair the break Monday morning. Meanwhile, head coach Sean McVay said Samson Ebukam will temporarily take Barwin's place in the starting lineup.
Barwin injured his arm in Sunday's game against the Saints and will not return, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.
Barwin had just two tackles total in the two games coming into Week 12. Samson Ebukam stands to see an increase in playing time as a result.
Barwin recorded four tackles (three solo), a sack and a fumble recovery during Sunday's 51-17 win over the Giants.
The sack was Barwin's fourth of the season and he's also up to a respectable 23 tackles (19 solo). However, it's been a wildly inconsistent campaign from the veteran, as last week against Arizona, he failed to register a single tackle. As a result, it's difficult to rely on Barwin in most IDP settings.
Barwin notched five tackles (three solo) and a sack against the Ravens on Sunday.
Barwin looks as if he's eased his way into a starting role in Los Angeles, but his IDP value relies on tackling the quarterback. However, if he can continue to raise his tackle total and maintain pressure on opposing quarterbacks, he could be considered a consistent IDP asset.
