Heading into this off-season, most analysts believed former Houston Texans line backer Connor Barwin would be one of the most sought after pieces in free agency. It turned out, those analysts were right. Barwin signed a six-year, $36 million contract with the Philadelphia Eagles during free agency. With the decision to leave Houston, Barwin did what a lot of players do when they leave a city, thank the fans. However, Barwin took it one step further and seemed to thank every person he came across during his tenure in Houston. Barwin used his Facebook to post a thank you image to those who have helped him along the way. The only weird thing about all of this is that Barwin takes the time to thank people like Barry at Hanks Gym and Dan Allen at Uchi. Although I do no think I can make fun of a guy who took the time out to thank people when he did not have to in the first place. The post Connor Barwin thanks what seems to be the entire city of Houston appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE - Presented by Sports-Kings.
