NFL linebacker Connor Barwin signed with the Philadelphia Eagles as a free agent this month, ending his tenure with the Houston Texans after four seasons.

It seems almost customary these days that when a professional athlete leaves a city for another, that they take out a full-page "Thank You" ad for the fans.
The latest came from former Houston Texans outside linebacker Connor Barwin who took a full-page ad in the Houston Chronicle and pretty much thanked everybody.
